Have you ever had days that start out pretty great, but turn into a crazy exhausting mess?
That was definitely today.
Things started out fine. Woke up early with some m/s like normal. Ate breakfast and went about our usual routine. We went to practice and came home. B ate some lunch. Then went down for a nap.
Just as I was sitting down to eat my own lunch I started getting some cramps. Not real severe just enough to make we extremely anxious and post on a (private) FB page needing some reassurance that it was normal. Which of course those ladies came through and set my mind at ease.
And then things started going crazy! I started losing vision in my right eye- complete black out in some areas and blurry in others. And then I couldn't really form a thought or words. I tried to read an email with little success so I attempted to read it out loud. Fail.
So freaking out more I called Batman, who couldn't make sense of what I was saying, only that something was wrong with me. At his prompting I called my docs office. (all of this took about a half hour?)
They sent me to the ER. (had to call my fil to come pick up me and b as they didn't want me driving- plus even though I could talk again I was really dizzy and weak).
After 2 hours and a bunch of tests, I did not have a stroke. It was either a very small TIA or a migraine variant. They're leaning towards migraine since I have a history of them (although haven't had one in over 3 years) but I have to follow up with the neurologist tomorrow along with my OB (hooray that I see him tomorrow anyway) and take baby aspirin daily until further notice. Oh and I'm on a 48 hour watch for further TIA symptoms. Fun!
Batman has been wonderful through all of this craziness, taking care of me, making me rest and drink lots of water. :) he's a keeper for sure.
And now I'm beat and headed to bed.
I'll try and update tomorrow after our appt!
