Hits To The Head

I am writing this post after a nasty fainting spell has left me with a great big goose egg on the back of my head.  I think I would like to stop falling down please.  Jon now gets to monitor me for a concussion all night haha.

Also, I had an EEG to check for seizures (won't know anything for another two weeks, but I doubt it...).  However, there is NOTHING pleasant about getting strobe lights in your head to bring on a migraine (also helped by smashing my head into the floor).

I also got completely lost trying to find my way home today.

It apparently has not been my day.

Tell me my loves, what have you been up to??

You poor thing! I have had an EEG before too and it totally sucked! Did you have to be sleep-deprived for it? Seriously I had to go in for the test with less than 4 hours of sleep. I sure hope they can find you some answers!!! ((Hugs))

You need LOTS of salt!! It really helps with OI (which is why you're fainting and probably why the doc suspects seizures, too). Have you tried any OI treatments? They often help a lot with all CFS symptoms. E-mail me if you need more info.

Hope your head is OK after that bump! Sounds like a rough day...

Hey, I do hope you are feeling better. It is rough to have days like that. I like your blog!
Hang in there, and i hope you are soon feeling much better!

Hate falling, especially so one winds up hitting the Back of the Head! Nasty.. i am sorry.
Has the worst of the migraine passed by now, I hope?

Know that I am keeping a good thought for you.

I agree with Sue, it may be OI. Lots of us with M.E. have it. I've fainted quite a few times on and off over the years. (almost did today). My M.E. Dr. recommends increase salt intake up to 2tsp a day and drink TONs of fluid. There are also drugs if it get really severe....
It's so weird/bizzare to come to and not know what happened isn't it?

Thank you all for your support!!!

I'm thinking it is definitely an OI problem combined with everything else I already have. I try to keep my fluids high but I have a hard time with food.

And it is TOTALLY bizarre to come to and be like...why am I on the floor with a splitting headache??
