I decided I'd rather break my tibia than experience 3 hours of a migraine.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Spinal tap headache. Not the spinal tap itself, that was painless, but the SEVEN days of crushing pain in my head after. I was totally helpless, every time I raised my head, it felt like it was going to cave in. And I was on codiene and nausea meds and it just barely took the edge off.
Everyday day, I spoke with my neuro on the phone and he assures me this is the last day of pain. Then on the 8th day, when the pain began to lift, they wanted me to come into the ER and have a blood patch epideral (yeah, can't spell that, don't care) and I was like, no way is anyone messing with my spine now!
My 2 cents - I have sprained an arm and gotten into a bike accident that caused memory loss but the greatest physical pain I've experienced is menstrual cramps. They make me wanna curl up and tell God "I take it back, I don't want to have kids" :P
