So yesterday I stayed home from work in order to see the doctor about the sharp pains in my head. Doctor M, my regular doctor, wasn't available so I so Doctor D. I guess the world of medicine has changed drastically since the last time I had an immediate medical issue. My former GP would have looked in my nose, throat, ears, eyes and made a diagnosis based on what he saw coupled with my explanation of what I'm experiencing. Not so with Dr. D. He did check my eyes but that's about all. He asked me a lot of questions like whether I saw double vision and if I could touch his finger with my finger then touch my nose (I told him I wasn't drunk). He then ordered x-rays of my sinus cavities and a CT scan of my head. He claimed it was sinusitis but I guess he wanted to rule out a brain tumor or an alien nesting in my head. So I had both done yesterday. I wish I could tell you it went smoothly but it did not. However...of the technicians I met, all three were male and all three were c-u-t-e. Why is it we meet cute guys when we feel like crap?
As per the doctor's instructions, I called his office to find out the results of these procedures. As it turns out, I have no brain bleeding or swelling, a good thing. However, my sinuses are inflamed (DUH!) and - here's the kicker - he thinks there's a cyst in one of my sinus cavities. This would explain the frequent headaches and pain. He has referred me to an ENT for further treatment. Of course, it was after 5 pm so I'll have to call on Monday. In the meantime, I am to take Tylenol for the pain. That's fine and dandy except I had already mentioned that Tylenol didn't touch the pain!
This morning I'm feeling better. The pain only occurs occasionally but I'm sure as the day goes on it'll get worse. So I guess after all there IS something growing in me head although not as exciting as a tumor or alien.
I plan to do some chores around the house, watch movies, and pretty much just take it easy. I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday! BEHR HUGS!!
