Had an interesting thought last night. I don't remember the last time I didn't have a headache. I can get to a medically induced state of semi-headache -relief but it's only an illusion. It's been weeks since I was well and truly headache free. Geo said he was surprised because I hadn't mentioned it recently. But really, at a certain point, constantly talking about the headache becomes meaningless. The state is unchanged. Kind of like mentioning constantly that I currently have red hair, except that other people can see the red, and only I can see (*and feel, and smell, and taste, and hear) the headache. 

*Oh yes I can. It is yellow and wobbly, like a big bouncing jelly & foam ball. It tastes and smells tart and acrid like lemon curd fermented and gone bad. At the moment it sounds like a dull thrum, though it frequently sounds like a shrill spiky trill, or sometimes a whirring rushing sound. These all change from with time, but it has been yellow, tart, and wobbly for a week or more.

I'm wondering if it's related to the weather. My headache is ongoing since Saturday. Some of mine is related to the muscle spasm in my shoulder. It's unusual for me to go this many days with no break. It has gone as I told Chris from my head scolding my sternly to shrieking at me to a sharp talking to and back and forth. It never stops.

I hate headaches. As I am sure you do too. I've had previous periods where my migraines were near continuous but I thought I had it under control. I guess I need to deal with the shoulder (trigger point injection) and the dental stuff (dentist wants to build me an orthotic and/or) reconstruct my mouth jaw alignment and tension definitely contribute to my headaches.

I've been seeing, smellin tasting off for days.

I understand.

Have you had that shoulder looked at? I still love my ortho.

I've never had issues with them. I've never had to deal with them much. I just
schedule with him and see him and never had issues.

Now if you ask me about the orthopedic oncologist and the duke system in general I have a several page dissertation about the ways I loathe them.

They've screwed up my appointments and won't fix it and that makes me crazy.
