health update

My CAT Scan was super quick, but I have no idea what the results mean. The doctor told me not to come back unless I feel pain again AFTER I finish the antibiotics, my third course of antibiotics... I am almost hoping my headache comes back just so I can go see a specialist and sort this out.

I have sinusitis every year, before and after winter, something to do with the change of weather. It knocks me for at least two weeks each time. I would love to not have to worry about it. They gave me some nasal sprays that might help. I remember a doctor in Brazil once told me 10 years ago that if I used the nasal sprays every day for the rest of my life I would be fine. Since I moved to Australia I kinda forgot about it, so I guess in the end, it is all my fault LOL

Anyway, thanks so much for your messages and thoughts. I am feeling MUCH better, just hoping my stomach survives the medication :)

Talk soon!

Oh, Michelle, allergies are a BEAR. I KNOW. Do the nasal spray and be consistent, consistent, consistent and it will help SO much. Also, be consistent. You might try a neti pot as well. Gross, yes, but I understand it works like a dream and if it helps keep the headache away it would be incredibly worth it.

My whole family suffers from allergies. My older brother was in & out of the emergency room for weeks at one point. They even did a spinal tap, thinking it was meningitis. Turns out it was a sinus infection, thanks to the allergies. You can bet he's consistent with the medication these days ;)

Hope you feel better soon!
