I just got back from my pm appointment, and he gave me my 2nd round of nerve blocks. Wow... last week, they just made me numb, and my shoulders and arms just felt really heavy. Today, he hit a nerve or something, and the pain shot right to my teeth. The pain itself wasn't all that bad relatively, just the cringing type, and was more irritating than anything else. But today, my head is so heavy, I can barely lift it off my pillow right now!! Is that normal? Anyways, I'm a little nervous, I know that heaviness will go away in a few hours, but the other thing was that when they took my blood pressure after, it was 143/103!!! Now that's a little scary, I think it actually went higher after I saw that. So weird, but after that shot, it is no wonder. I tend to get whitecoat syndrome anyways, so I really don't know what my normal bp is, it is generally a little higher as soon as I walk into the docs office, I can feel it going up. Under those normal circumstances, it is usually somewhere around 120/90. Still a little high, but not worrisome. I'm only 36, and the last thing I want is to have to add bp pills to my list!!! Has anyone else had anything like that happen?
I also feel like my skin is crawling, right under my jawline, but it's useless to try to scratch, as I can't feel anything. That happened last week, too. Not sure if I'm liking these shots, but I must give them a chance I suppose.
Hope you all have a great day, I'm off to nap, and try to lower this bp!!!
