I haven't been feeling well for the past week. I woke up one Saturday morning thinking to myself, "Self, I feel terrible. I don't think I'll be able to work today. I would probably have to ask to leave work early.

I was going to give myself a chance to wake up and see how I felt then. I felt horrible. I called in sick that day. I slept for a good protion of the day and headaches statted. I was eating tylenol extra strength every 4 hours like clock work. I slept a good part of the day and night. The headaches started after I lied down. I think they woke me up.

I went to church on Sunday, not feeling good. I stayed home Sunday night because my head was pounding.

I went to the doctor Momday morning. She gave me medicine for my headache and checkled my heartbeat. It was irregular. The next day I went back for more medicine I could take during the day for my headaches. While I was there, they scheduled me for an MRI of the brain and an Echo doppler which is an echocardiagram. The MRI didn't show amything, but the echocardiagram did. They told me what they found, but I don't know what it is. And I don't know what it means. They want me to take a stress test and they will schedule one for me they said.

I have been back to work and now my back hurts something fierce. Other then that, I'm fine. The doctor gave my exercises to do with some medicine to take.

Do I sound like a drug addict?

My back still hurts, but I will continue taking the medicine and doing the exercises.

OMG Lamb - are you feeling any better? It's amazing how you can assume your health will always be there until something happens.

Take care, ok?
