Honestly, my headaches change through out the day. Sometimes it feels like someone has taken a child's belt and put it around the circumference of my head and tightened it. Then, when it can tighten no more -- they tighten it down one more notch. Other times it feels like someone is taking a blunted object and shoving into my brain. Most of the time the shoving pain is on the left hemisphere, but it has lately turned into a frontal lobe pain. I can have sharp pain, dull pain, a pulsating pain, a pressure pain. Sometimes they happen all at the same time and when this happens I start to see shapes similar to what you would see if someone had taken flash photography over and over again.
I am not a pain medicine kind of woman. The only time I've taken true pain medication (IE narcotics) is when I had surgery and it was pretty much forced on me. Even then, I would take it for the day of the surgery and maybe the day after and then switch to something else because I just don't like the idea of narcotics. Also, I am sensitive to over the counter pain relievers. I used to take either Motrin or Tylenol (both children's versions too because if I take adult strength then it knocks me out), but the most recent times I've taken Motrin I've had a reaction that has gotten worse. Therefore, I can pretty much only taken children's tylenol. I *only* take it when I have the all over, different types of brain aches, pain and need something to try to take the edge off. I knew I was having a problem with pain when I took it three days in a row. That's when I stopped all my antibiotics. I thought by going off of them for 4 days the pain would ease off. It didn't. That's why we started the new plan for now.
So anyways. This morning I got up and started day 2. I had originally planned to only increase the dosage of 3 of the items, but decided to go ahead and up my dosage on a few other items as well. Things that stayed the same as yesterday I marked with "same as yesterday" I have a long way to go before the first three items are at the dosage I'm supposed to be taking. (depending on how I take it - under the tongue - 10 drops or in water 30 drops)
This is what my morning supplements looked like:
- Cerebromax (2 drops x twice daily)
- Spinalmax (2 drops x twice daily)
- Matrix Support (2 drops x twice daily)
- Tox Ease GL (full dropper x twice daily) - same as yesterday
- Solray D Spray (2 sprays x twice daily)
- Methyl B12 Spray (1 spray x twice daily - same as yesterday
- Lymph 2 (full dropper x twice daily - well before other supplements)
- Hawthorn Intrinsic (full dropper x twice daily)
- Vitamin C (1 gram AM, 2 grams PM)
- Multivitamin (2 x twice daily)
Since I increased the dosage of so many items (6), I won't add anything new today.
This morning I woke up with stabbing pain in frontal lobe and a numb sensation in my right hemisphere. I do feel more clear headed this morning (IE, I could think of the words hemisphere and circumference without having to do a lot of googling to figure out the words I wanted to use).
