The past two, two and a half months have seen:
–>> headaches, every day – usually wake up with it. Sometimes its a general all over headache, sometimes its a localized pain in the crown of my head (feels like the hemispheres are trying to leak out of my ears).
–>> Vertigo, several times a week. Feels like I am standing on the deck of a ship in a heavy sea.
–>> Dizziness, every day but usually mild.
–>> Eye pain, shooting, pressing pain behind both eyes. Feels like someone is pressing their thumbs against the back of them and pushing out.
–>> Loss of balance, I walk into shit way more than normal. If I close my eyes and lift my right foot, it takes about a half second for me to start to topple over.
–>> Leg, foot and hip cramps. OMG, fucking painful ones that no amount of rubbing seems to help.
–>> Drop in BP whenever I stand, or really change position at all. This is getting to the point where its beyond annoying. It’s not sometimes, it’s every damn time I change my position. laying to sitting, sitting to standing, side position to back, etc. Doesn’t matter. It all causes my head to spin and the world to gray out slightly.
–> Numb patches, randomly over my legs and feet
–>> Shooting pains from the bottom of my left foot to my groin. These two are what makes me think that it might be a pinched nerve.
–>> Heavy bruising with no apparent cause, usually on my lower legs.
–>> Nausea. I had been thinking that the nausea was all related to my surgery but I have actually been eating pretty good. I shouldn’t be nauseated all that often. I also notice that I am usually nauseated when the headaches get bad. Which leads me to …
–>> Migraines – -which are different than headaches. Visual issues (sparkly, gray fields in my vision), motion, light and sound sensitivity, extreme pain, and nausea from said. 2-3 x’s a month.
