What the heck is happening?

Postby oostevens » Mon Nov 26, 2007 11:25 am

Ok....i have been getting headaches since last week or so, the bad ones that take over your whole head, the kind you get when u drink no water. Well i have been drinking 2L water a day, so it couldnt be that :( I have also been very tired at night, can barely make it past 9.30pm :(

I don't know what is goin on. My iron is fine, cos i had a blood test the other week and all they told me was that my iron was fine, but the doc wants to do a routine checkup cos the blood test was abnormal. But I am guessing its nothing urgent, cos i booked a doc appointment 1wk later and she said that was fine. I go on Saturday.

I have been eating fine, drinking water, and i can't think of a reason for it :(

It was ttom up untill the other day but i have never had these bad headaches through that before :s And I am not stressed either.

Any ideas? ha ha ha

Could be lots of things - most commonly tension or migraines, but a LOT of conditions will give you headaches. It's best to try not to worry about it, try to relax and do some relaxation techniques like meditation or lying quietly or getting someone to give you a neck massage etc..

And let us know how it goes at the doc :)

i have never had migraines before, that i know of and yeah

i am hoping for my sake that the headaches are linked to the blood test, cos then i will know whats happening :(

currently have a headache now :( and no panadol.

Oh i have also been getting motionsick alot. More than usual. Like when i am in the car for a split second :( so i feel sick in the stomack a lil bit and i have had a few dizzy spells :( thats why i went to the doc in the first place, cos i thought it was my iron levels. But nope.

And i cant be preg, cos well we double up on contraception and it was ttom this month and i didnt skip it.

cant wait till sat!

hmm maybe i m starting to get those now. haven't noticed any tunnel or blurred vision, but my eyes have been super itchy lately :( don't know about neck pain, i did have a sore neck 1 day but i had slept on my neck and arm weird cos they only hurt that day and not since.

Headache has kinda gone now, but feeling a tad lightheaded :( and like i haven't had much sleep, but i had like 7hrs which is good for me :p

i never had them and then a few years ago started having them all the time. so i had to cut down on orange juice and chocolate (used to drink lots of oj and have maybe too much choc :oops: still not that much though) and since cutting it down i've been fine :) only get the odd migraine here and there now, mainly when i'm really tired/worn-down.

funny u should mention thyroid.

my dad has graves disease and i think his sister and dad had it too.

i might ask my doc about that on saturday.

I was looking at some of the symptoms and i dont wanna diagnose myself, but i have a few of them:

- depression
- sensitive eyes
- hearing is getting worse
- exhausted
- heavy periods/cramps
- (we tried for a kid for a lil while and i didnt fall - could be anything really)
- my neck was sore the other day.... and i have noticed i cant bend it a certain way and that sometrimes it feels like i have swolled a ball but i thought that was just me being stupid
- ummmm
- my sleep is a bit restless
- hubby said i am feeling temps diff to him, cos i get cold when he aint, and i get hot when he aint
- i have vertigo

just a few :p

but i will not diagnose myself i will just mention it to my doc :) could be why my blood test was abnormal ha ha

Good luck with the blood test, hopefully it will show something up so you can do something about it. Headaches suck badly! I get really bad headaches, like daily, for anywhere up to 3 or even 6 months, it's just awful!

That's interesting about the thyroid and eyes... I have had a problem with really watery eyes for such a long time, at least the past few years! I have thyroid included in my blood test (which I am yet to have, god I am a sook!), so you never know.

sounds like you certainly have a lot of the symptoms of Graves' disease (its a condition of overactive thyroid).. will be very interesting to see what the blood results show!

ok. well i saw the doc on saturday. apparently my liver was abnormal. which she reckons is from a virus, maybe galandular fever or some cmd cdm lol thing or ross river (but its not that one cos i have no rashes).

I had another blood test, which tested my liver and for thyroid. I find out the results on tuesday. I can't wait.

My resting heart rate last night was 95....is that good or bad?
