nausea



*POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: My period ending might explain the headache, but I don't understand this jaw pain.

** Pain started out right on top of my head, and it felt like a lot of pressure again.  Then it spread to my temple, but was more intense there.  It was in my temples, down into my jaw.  It progressively got worse as the evening went on.  I gave it a 7 by 9:00, which is when the nausea started and when I got sick of it and finally took something (that didn't help all that much).

*POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: I know what did this one... Went to an eye doctor to determine whether or not these daily chronic headaches I've been getting have anything to do with my eyes and if the pain I've been getting in my eyes had anything to do with cataracts and/or the cyst on my brain.

** They put the pupil dilating stuff in my eyes and I had an awful headache since that point.  My eyes hurt all day long and it turned into a migraine by afternoon.  Had to sleep for a while just to take the edge off.

** All of my symptoms were determined to be neurological.  Cataracts were not an issue (apparently that is a "relative" term among eye doctors, and he does not feel that I have them significantly enough to be considered "real" cataracts... whatever that means).  My eyes are completely healthy, and he doesn't not think that the cyst is causing my eyes themselves any harm.

** POSSIBLE TRIGGERS:

* Started out in the morning as sharp twinges of migraine-esque pain on the top right side of my head, towards the back.  The pain would move in waves and go from front to back.  Sometimes it was intense enough to stop me in my tracks and brought a bit of nausea with it.  

* All afternoon everyone in my family was complaining about how hot it was while I was walking around in long sleeves and practically shaking.  I was constantly back and forth between hot and cold and was sitting with a blanket wrapped around me by dinnertime.  My muscles ached, I felt extremely fatigued.  I took my temp and it was about 100.2.  It was low, so I wasn't really concerned.  Around 7:00, I fell asleep and when I woke up around 9:00 it felt like the fever broke.  But by 10:00 I felt hotter than I did before and my muscles hurt even more.  I took an Aleve and tried to go to bed.  By morning I was absolutely fine.

*POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: ?

** Hurt to touch all over my entire head.  I had light sensitivity all day long.  It was a really bright cloudly day, and those always suck for me, so it was to be expected.  I took 2 Aleve at some point, but it only helped a little.  The pain never went away fully.
