The steroids kicked in this morning. I was feeling much better early this morning. Believe it or not, after that and after taking my medication (newly upped dosage starting yesterday), I had a few minutes with no pain! It was awesome!!! After about 3 hours I decided to go outside. It is very sunny today. My youngest daughter and I were walking the dog and the stabs just came on very intense. It has been back ever since. I am feeling sorry for myself now. :-( I wrote a desperate email to my neuro asking for help. I am so sick of this whole illness. It has been such a rollercoaster. When the pain is better even for a little while then comes crashing back, it is so devastating not only to me but also to my family. It is such a happy time when I feel like doing things, then all of a sudden I am going to bed with my ice pack because of the pain. I really don't feel that I have ever done anything so bad in my life to deserve such an illness as this hemicrania continua. Ok I will quit venting for now before I am totally wallowing in self pity here. Hopefully I will hear something back from the doc soon.
