After having a life of NEVER riding in an ambulance, I’ve now done it twice in less than a week. Yes, I had to go back to the hospital last night. I was sitting on my couch at around 9:30 when all of a sudden I started feeling those shocks in my head again. This time it wasn’t just one shock — there were four or five right in a row — quickly accompanied by tingling in my left arm. My wife called our good friend who’s a nurse and she told us to go to call 911.
So, I went back to the hospital. They did ANOTHER ct scan because the other one I had done was sent away to be read by another doctor. The second scan was done WITHOUT the contras, so they weren’t able to look the the blood vessels in the brain. But, the scan didn’t show any masses. But, it did show that I have a neck with arthritis in c-5 and c-6 that could be causing some of the pain.
There’s still nothing there to show WHY my head keeps doing what it’s doing.
It’s nearly 11am and I just got up. I’m getting a bit depressed about why this is happening. But, I am relieved that there doesn’t appear to be a tumor or anything serious like that. I would, however, like this to end.
I feel badly that my wife has to deal with this and to see the fear in my daughters eye last night was heartbreaking. I can only imagine what’s going through her mind these days.
I’m viewing this as a trial. God must be preparing me for something. Im still planning to read Romans today in The Message.
Greg..this sounds oddly like something Scott has dealt with for a couple years now. His happens just a couple times a year and causes almost unbearable headaches, with very sharp pains in his head, that basically confine him to bed for a few days. Twice Doctors have told him this has to do with some nerve damage that attaches his head to his neck. There is a drug that he can be on, but the side effects would be worse than putting up with this a couple times a year. (although while he is experiencing it I am not sure he feels that way). The doctor also told him that the pain associated with this is one of the strongest pains out there. You’ll have to talk to him about it. I will definately pray for you and Anatasia and Anne. I am glad that the test come back negative but I sure hope they can do something for pain. God will take care of the rest. Praying for you. Kathy
