Left Side Right Side


I feel like my head is going to explode.   But no worries.  It's just the right side of my head.  The left side is fine.   So if my head DOES explode, I will only lose my creativity, not my use of logic.  At least that's what wikipedia said.   I'm not that creative anyway, so no big deal.   I don't even know if I'm very logical, either.  But at least I'll be able to BE logical if I want to. 

I get headaches a lot.  Always have.   My mother is a headacher and at least one sister is a headacher.   Headacher.  I made that up.   See, I haven't lost my creativity yet.  

Once, years and years ago, I was going to my twin nephews' soccer game with my sister.  I got a headache - - I remember the exact moment it  began - - and I was sick for a week.  I couldn't drive to go home so I stayed on my sister's couch for a week.   The doctor said it was a tension headache.  I don't know.  Maybe that's right.   But I tell my children now that I had an aneurysm.   They laugh.  But it sounds better than a tension headache.

At any rate, I am going to put my head on my desk now.   And hope I can lift it later.

  2. I'd get a second opinion. I'm not sure a tension headache puts you out for a week. I hope you feel better soon and don't have an aneurysm. Those are bad.

  3. Maybe too much ice cream...?
    Sorry... That 's joke.
    What I really meant is maybe you are sensitive to certain foods and should look for the culprit in that direction. I know a few people like that..
    Hope this case will be a very very very short one and only last the time of a quick desk head nap!

    1. That's funny, Anni. When I saw your name pop up I thought I'd tell you it was because of too much ice cream (like that's possible!)!

  5. I know exactly how you feel. I use to have headaches all the time until I started wearing glasses. I still get them every once in awhile, and they usually last about 3 days. My mom was a headacher, too.

  7. I have a friend who gets migraines, and they are the worst. I've found the best cure for any headache is nap. :-) Hope you feel better soon.

    1. You didn't know there were so many people in there helping to make your brain work, huh? Kind of creepy, isn't it?

  9. I keep Excedrin tension headache in my purse at all times because mine start in my neck and shoulders and by the time they get to my head, I want to die.
    Usually a massage every 8 weeks works for me (try it)
    Look up what headache triggers are and try to avoid them. See, I am logical (my husband would argue that)

    1. Yes, neck and shoulders, then head! I am going out today to buy Excedrin tension headache stuff - - thanks!

  10. For a guy with a long list of head issues, being a headacher isn't one. Never get 'em. Would you like to trade issues? :)

    1. Thanks, Betty. I find if I just tilt my head to the right it is not so bad :)

  12. I am so sorry! As a life long sufferer of migraines, I can relate to the pain that literally stops life. I need a cold rag, a dark room, and a Mt. Dew. I like the caffeine. Hope you feel better soon!

    1. The dr told me once about caffeine helping - - I may have to drink a Coke today :)

  13. Rule out soccermiseryitis, rule out politics. lol

    Seriously, as a former transcriptionist, there could be many, many reasons for a recurring and/or persistent headache. From my knowledge, and mind you, I am not a doctor, sometimes symptoms can go undiagnosed.

    Truly, if you're able, get a 2nd and or 3rd opinion and play it safe.

    I hope for the best for you.

  14. I'm a headacher as well & have been since I was in high school. My husband calls it redneck medicine but I swear by BC powders. Hope your headache didn't last too long.

  16. My last job caused headaches that made me feel as if my head would explode. I lived on the Exedrin Tension Headache for the last 10 months that I was there. I agree tho with others you should go and see if they are migraines.

    1. I am self-diagnosing :) I googled yesterday and don't really have any of the migraine symptoms like nausea, needing to be in a dark room, etc. I guess, though, if I wanted to be doctor I would have gone to school :)
