Just for awhile, anyway.
Because of the anti-seizure meds I'm taking to reduce my migraines and constant headaches, I am losing feeling in my hands, feet, head, and other parts of my body. Because of this, I am finding it hard to type without making major mistakes. I also am forgetting words like crazy. Top that with the hormones, and I am one step away from losing my mind people. No kidding.
I am limiting my driving because I am getting confused. I was driving home from Costco about 2 weeks ago, and could not figure out how to get home. I am not kidding. I just forgot. Luckily the kids where at home with Rob, I mean, Jay. And it's mostly my left side that is all tingly-numb. You know that feeling you get right before your hand falls asleep, like pins and needles. That's what it feels like. I can grip the steering wheel, but it kind of hurts. And I mostly hold it with my left hand.
The other night, I was talking to Jay, and I guess I started talking funny. Jay was all, "Why are you talking like that" and I was like "My mouf is numb" and I started poking it and it was like the dentist and filled me full of Novocaine or something. Totally weird.
This post is taking forever because my fingers are totally messing up the letters. The neurologist said this would happen, and since I up the dose weekly, it is only going to get worse. Lucky me! I go in to see him a week after surgery, which is when I get off the hormones, so hopefully, he has some good news. Like, "Hey, after a month, these symptoms just go away, and you become normal again!". Probably not. I have really shitty luck.
