“babe it’s happening again” (my face is tingling and going numb) .
So I leave church with my three littlest to go to Insta care to get some steroids and other prescriptions I take when the B! word returns. .
I hadn’t have symptoms since after Brooklyn’s birth and we were able to get control of it before it got to the level It had gotten to when I had Holland. .
So I’m talking with my dr and she’s asking the standard questions and doing the tests. Then she asks me if I’ve been vomiting. And I said oddly yes. I got this headache , loss my vision right before the numbness kicked in and threw up ALL night! I wrote this off as a really bad migraine. .
She did not! She then asked if I had a ride to the emergency room. I said my husband is teaching at church and can be here after. Then she’s like so I’ll cal you an 🚑 .
OH H! NO 🙅🏼♀️ I’m already mad I have to spend my day in a hospital let alone have fire fighters escort me 🤣 .
Dallin shows up and takes the kids home so I can see what the er can do for me. Next thing I know labs are taken and they fill me with blue dye for a cat scan that burns my body (I felt like a marvel character it’s the oddest feeling) they don’t find blood clots or signs of stroke 🙏🏻 .
Next the MRI – I was so nervous about this bc this is what they all suspected where they were going to find something , a potential tumor. Was it the machine, the plastic mask over my face, or the fear of what if they found something? the combo made me have a strait up claustrophobic/ panic attack. .
Dallin came to my rescue and saved the day, we were able to perform the MRI and we have answers.
no clots , no stroke , no TUMOR , but I do have a small case of Bells Palsy (again) 😞 . I may experience flare ups for the rest of my life bc we still don’t know what is the cause of it? .
Thankful it’s a mild case this time (knock on wood) and nothing major is going on upstairs 🤯 .
thanks for your comments. As I sat there all ALONE after my first attempt at the MRI trying to calm down and psych myself up to go back in I turned to y’all. Thanks to so many of you for sharing your stories how you reacted to the MRI ❤️
