The last three months have been super stressful with my husband being in the ICU and dr. telling me he may not live. Thankfully he is pulling through but I'm having constant pressure headaches so bad that at times I hear/feel cracking in my head. Tylenol does nothing. Besides the high stress I was stupidly carrying a heavy load of stuff in a big tote bag on my shoulder to the hospital every day.
So today he is in a rehab and I am too dizzy to drive there.
Pressure and stabbing pains in my temples, forehead and top of head mostly and very dizzy.
Does anyone know something that would bring me some relief?
Thanks. JoanEllenView Thread
I tried the heat on my neck and shoulders and it helped a lot. I'm trying to take the time to pack a decent lunch. We don't have a stop n shop around here but the grocery store is practically in my back yard so I don't have much excuse not to run in and pick up something healthy. I just need to start thinking about my health a little too I realize. I appreciate all your suggestions and you're keeping in touch.
I'll try the heat and have my BP checked too . I'm making terrible food choices. Whatever's convenient. And I go to bed very tired but my mind won't shut off.
It's nice to reach out and find someone there.
Thanks a lot.
