So, lately I've been having lots and lots and lots of migraines.
My head is seriously out of control.
And it's the worst.
But anyway, that's not what this post is about. Not really.
Because I have been having so many migraines, I have had to go to the ER/instacare/headache clinic for emergency treatment when the regular meds don't do anything.
Honestly, the regular meds never seem to do anything but whatever.
So, when I go to the clinic/ER/instacare, they give me a couple of shots in the hip usually.
Turns out depending on where you go, they give the shot in a slightly different place.
butt, hip and even upper thigh have been used.
I know I went to nursing school a long time ago but have they really changed where they give shots? I mean, I don't think the human anatomy has changed that much in 20 years (or whatever...I didn't do the math ok?)
But one particular time, the nurse gave me a shot in kind of the front of my hip. It was the weirdest shot ever and when she gave me the second shot my leg jumped and it hurt and I was like,"that cannot be good." But I had a headache so I just went with it and pretended all was fine.
My hip hurt for a long time.
And now, weeks later, that part of my hip and outer leg is freakishly numb.
It's actually kind of a mixture of hurting and being numb at the same time.
I sometimes find myself scratching or rubbing that area because it is hurting a bit but when I scratch, it feels numb.
It's super weird.
My headache doctor told me that it would gradually improve and I was not ruined forever. So I'm hoping that's true.
This has been your random weird Debbie thing of the day.
You are welcome.
