So she talked to me for an hour and the conclusion:
So it is a muscle in my back that has nerves coming from the occipital lobe and wrapping around to my sinus-- causing the sinus like pain and headaches!
The reason I have this issue.......
the elliptical machine at the YMCA.
so apparently the movement of the arms going back and forth like that in a rowing fashion has caused the muscle to get all out of wack which in turn has caused the nerves to become way screwed up. which in turn is causing my the debilitating headaches and the more minor headaches and sinus pressure. It was never migraines, it was never a sinus infection.
IT WAS EXCERCISE!
So, they took four shots and put them into the back of my skull into the nerves .
Emily was in the room and started crying and had to leave. I didn't know it would be traumatic to her.
Serious pain. WORSE than an epidermal!
In two weeks I have to go back and then two weeks after that I have to go back. It is supposed to get easier each time as the nerves get "less out of whack".
The meds in the shot are a combination of a pain reliever but mostly it is a steroid. Which when I had the "sinus infection" the steroids HELPED my headache each time!
My head hurts like the dickens now-- she said it would likely get much worse tonight but start feeling better by tomorrow.
So yeah. Ouch x 4, but I guess I am on the road to recovery. And after 6 weeks I can start exercising again and just not use my arms on the elliptical!
Other than that I should be good....
