Have you ever had a WTF morning? Of course, you have, we all have. I want to tell you about mine and ask for some input on either who to talk to about it or how to get through it if it happens again. Or whether the proper response is a few choice 4 letter words and move on.
First, relatively speaking, I’m fine.
This morning, I’m working on some family paperwork (financial, etc. - truly boring and hard to do anyway, especially with a headache). Headache was pretty normal 2 to 4 range, constantly bouncing around in that range. The only thing I noticed even remotely different was my balance. I had I think three times this morning where I was standing (at the kitchen sink etc) and suddenly it felt like the floor in front of me was going upward and I had to take a step back to keep my balance. A couple of steps and adjustments and I was fine. Happened two or three times this morning - while doing laundry, making breakfast, etc. - so it doesn’t seem to be related to bending over.
My 19-year-old "nope full-time college isn’t for me came downstairs and asked me some questions about his music that he’s writing. I responded to him and every syllable of the words I spoke felt like a jackhammer (albeit a brain sized one) pounding on the inside of my skull. My pain levels immediately went from a 3 to an 8 and then if I stopped talking for 15 to 20 minutes, it starts calming down almost immediately but doesn’t come all the way down. It happened about an hour ago and it’s down to a 5, so more than before but it’s now down into the manageable range.
I’ve had this before (a lot more before I started propranolol) but never to this extreme of a jump and also not coming down as quickly as before and having more and longer “other” effects - cold, fatigued, vision is worse than before, achy all over in addition to my headache.
Big deal or a bump in the road?
Anyone had anything similar ever?
Like I told my “Randy” and my wife, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
