Ugh

I feel like I am having the worst day ever.

I couldn't sleep last night because of a killer migraine. Who knows how much actual sleep I got, but it wasn't much. Of course, the migraine had to set off my wisdom teeth too, so that made my night/morning that much better.

That finally stopped, and now my fingers are hurting like crazy and spasming a bit again, despite my muscle relaxants.

Oh yeah, that was pretty much all my primary care doc would do for me - muscle relaxants & new migraine meds. I didn't try the latter, but we'll see if they're better than imitrex.

The best part about all of it? She doesn't understand why my rheumy wouldn't handle pain meds either. Apparently, she's going to give him a call. But that'll just result in him telling her to send me to the pain management clinic, which will be crazy expensive and take forever to get into.

Oh well, I tried.

Also, I found out I didn't get my fellowship that I applied for. At this point, I'm ready for a break from school and would like to just exist for a while. We'll see what happens.

  3. Yeah, I think I do need to switch. But his entire office is like that, so I'll have to find one at the far west side of town I guess. Maybe I can ask him for recommendations :-p
