OK so it really wasn't fun, but trying to keep it light, here. The test itself wasn't so bad, I didn't feel much of anything until the dye went to my head, then the headache began. I had the test on Wednesday, it's now Sunday and the headache has lessened, but is still there, enough that I'm taking my Fioricet 4-6 times a day. I'd check my instructions to see if I should go to the ER because of this lingering headache, but they forgot to leave it with the nurse, can you believe that? The poor nurse, she looked all over, had the people in the x-ray department look all over, they couldn't find it. Finally, she pulled what she could find online and printed it out, which stated if I had a persistent migraine like headache to go to the ER if I couldn't control with medication. So far, I have been able to, but how long is this going to last? Is this normal?
I know this may not be in the right forum, I put it here because I had my 2 level ACDF last July, and this is where I usually post. Mods, if you think this would get more results and/or info in another area, please move and thanks in advance! I'm at my wit's end, and I see the bottom of my migraine meds bottle, which I just bought a week ago. Usually only take 1-2 a week. Sorry to whine, just really tired of the headache, and hoping that this is normal but really no way to know.
Hope everyone's having a pain free/pain light Sunday!
