I've had days where I moan from the pain or pace around because I don't know what to do about it! This is not good!
As I've mentioned, being in severe stress and anxiety is obviously not helping at all! Therefore I have had to make the difficult decision to stay off work for a little while. I didn't want to do that but it's one of the only things I can control that then takes a lot of stress and worry out of my life. It means if I sleep badly, I can lie in in the morning. It means that I don't have so much that other people put on me without understanding how I am feeling. It means that I can have the time to try and sort myself out mentally as well as try to manage my head pain.
I did have one moment though, where I used one of the new programs on my stimulator (the 10hz one) and I think it actually lowered my pain. I was super dizzy and in huge amounts of pain so I sat down and put this program on for 10 minutes or so. I could still feel the crushing head pain at my temples while it was on. But shortly after, and I mean minutes after, it was gone. The usual dull ache was still there but the worst was gone! I had also taken ibuprofen and paracetamol slightly earlier in desperation but surely they can't have helped like that! I'm sure I'll get to try out this program again soon enough.
