I had some really exciting things planned to post about this past weekend, but my body didn't cooperate. My "meals" were pretty much limited to ginger tea and saltine crackers until yesterday. I guess I had a stomach bug because I spiked a fever and was really nauseous Friday and Saturday. I didn't feel nauseous or have a fever on Sunday- just weak and woozy. Now today I'm mostly dizzy. Dizzy Lizzy.
Nearly a month ago I went to the doctor because I'd been having severe headaches a couple times a week for 2-3 weeks along with dizziness and general "off" feeling in my balance. The best way I can describe it is the feeling that I usually get when staring at a big wall that's covered in all polka dots or all stripes- Like my eyes don't know where to focus and then I feel like I'm moving. I got plenty of tests that showed I had no nutritional deficiencies or liver issues or blood pressure problems or fetuses growing. So the doc recommended that I get a brain MRI to rule out anything bad.
I thought he was jumping the gun a bit about this test and wasn't super excited about draining my HSA account, so I decided to wait and see if the symptoms persisted. After the appointment I didn't have any more headaches... until this past week. And the dizziness wasn't too bad... until this week.
So tomorrow morning I get rolled into the MRI tunnel. I hope that nothing's wrong, of course. But I also hope they figure out why I've been feeling so weird. I'll keep you posted-
Until my appetite is back, though, I won't be doing too much cooking. Everything still sounds gross.
