I’m beginning to suspect my headaches aren’t sinus related. It’s my doctor’s fault, really. She planted a seed in my head last week when she said, “I think your headaches may be caused by something other than sinusitis.”
I’m pretty quick, eh?
And yet, when Singulair didn’t work she prescribed another round of steroids. What do both of those drugs have in common? If you guessed they’re allergy related, you win the prize!* I guess I’ll humor the good doctor for now… long enough to finish off this latest round of ‘roids, but I think I may need to get a little more aggressive on my visit with her next week. (I called the office this morning after a long weekend, expecting my next appointment would get bumped up, or she’d try another approach; so another script for steroids was a bit of a disappointment, particularly when she was the one that suggested they may not be allergy related.)
With Beth pushing the OCD envelope lately, I need to be on top of my game; and in my world, headaches and patience are just about mutually exclusive.
Cheryl thinks I’m having migraines. I’d prefer to delude myself into believing they’re sinus related. Sinuses seem like they’d be easier to treat… and these headaches did start when I stopped taking allergy shots. Although, it was also when I started chemo… and the shots were doing their best to kill me (I kept having reactions to the shot), so I can’t exactly start them right up again. Still, it’s a small sign they could be my sinuses, right? Maybe I’ll try that neti pot again. If nothing else, my daughter gets a kick out of watching.
*No, not really.
