Headache update, part 1

I know, I've been slacking. But you know what they say. If you don't have anything nice to say...

Mike the migraine is still here. I got tired of griping about him, so I haven't, but he's still here. The thyroid tests all came back as normal as can be expected for a lumpy, bumpy thyroid. The doctor didn't think the headache was related to it, so the next step is to go to a neurologist. Yippee-skippee.

I don't want to go to another specialist just to be told it's a migraine and get put on more medication that makes me crazy and doesn't really help, so I decided to try a chiropractor/acupuncturist.

My first visit was Tuesday and my first treatment was yesterday. He's going to treat me three times a week for four weeks and we'll go from there. He thinks it's a tension headache brought on by reverse curvature of my upper spine (I saw the x-ray, it's true) and extreme tightness in my shoulder muscles. If it will get rid of the headache and I can get off the drugs, I don't care what he wants to do.

Of course, I haven't had the acupuncture yet. I might sing a different tune laying on a table with needles protruding from my body. Maybe quite a few different tunes - I'll be getting great reception.
