Saturday I woke up with the headache from hell. It was so bad that it had me screaming and crying. I’ve never felt pain like this in my head before.

It simmered down a bit, but after continual vomiting it came back in full affect. I yelled for my husband. It felt like someone was applying vice grips to my head and cranking them over and over.

My husband took me to the hospital. I go to the doctor yearly when I have to. Sometimes to urgent care, that’s when I know I have strep or when I was nursing and had mastitis. I don’t do hospitals. I’ve been to the hospital 3 times, to have 3 children.

We ended up in the ER for about 4 hours. I vomited during intake, was taken for a Catscan and administered meds via IV. Oh, did I mention I hate medicine too?? 3 children, no medicine. I hate to even take tylenol. I cried when they started giving me the meds.

Basically what we found out was that I had vomited so much, so intensely that muscles in my neck and head tensed up. Fast forward to Monday morning and I’m still in pain. Not as much as Saturday. I’d say I’m at a 2, where Saturday was about an 8. Just annoying at this point, 48 hours later.

I literally stayed in bed for about 23 out of 24 hours yesterday. Wish I could do it again today. I’m gonna get up and make it happen though. Happy Monday All!
