neurologist appt #2

i had another appointment with my neurologist - still trying to figure out the headaches. i've been on 2 medications since my last appointment a month ago: t... t... uh... something, and amitriptyline (or "i'm-a-trampoline" - as joel calls it. a husband who can make you laugh is worth the world.)
anyhoo, she gave me the results of my ct scan, which were worth sharing. it was normal, except for a funny space near the back of my brain. she called the radiologist, who assured her it was nothing to worry about - just an enlarged drainage space (everybody has them - mine are just bigger).
so... everybody who thinks i'm spacey: i have an excuse! there are holes in my brain!

i think i'm going to regret having shared that...

as for my migraines, she ordered some blood tests, upped my dose of the topamax i take - i call it "dopamax" :) - and told me to come back in 6-8 weeks.

so i'll keep taking my dopamax, i'm-a-trampoline, and limping through life with my holey head. funny it never bothered me...
