Well since my last post so much has happened!
On the 6th I was feeling lightheaded before leaving a coworkers office and instead of making a fool out of myself by saying, "Excuse me while I put my head between my legs," I decided I just wanted to go and put my head on my desk. I made it one step out of her office and passed out cold. This wasn't just a your knees go loose and you fall the floor gracefully, this was a your body goes as stiff as a board and you land chin first on a concrete floor covered with industrial carpet passout. Oh the irony of not wanting to cause a scene!
I was taken by Ambulance to the ER where I was x-rayed for broken jaw (none, thank goodness) and CT Scanned for a brain bleed (none again!).
Instead I got a huge bruise and goose egg on my chin
(this picture doesn't even do it justice!) and a blown vein from their first attempt at an IV.
I was released that afternoon and was told by my neurologist that I needed to have an EEG done "because there was no way it was the Chiari that caused me to faint."
Right have you read any of the listservs I am on. Oh well I digress.
So here I am today officially hooked up to 23 wires for the next 48 hours having my brainwaves measured. Oh what fun!! Don't worry I am going to take pictures. Who wouldn't want to document this medusa hairstyle?
