My MRI report )

So, the doctor thinks it is the small vessel vasculitis, which puts me at increased risk of stroke, and I need to improve diet, exercise, etc. I see from the Internet that it is sometimes associated with rheumatoid arthritis, which I may well also have. I'm having another blood test for that, with the promise of a referral to a rheumatologist.

It's done. Not so bad. Results in 4-5 working days. Feel a bit weird now.

Weekend was good, and life is looking up. :)

[livejournal.com profile] karen2205's picnic in Cambridge in Saturday was a success, and people seemed to eat my flapjacks.

Horrible headache this morning was displaced by drugs. Some inconsiderate people were having a music festival in Finsbury Park, which didn't help, as all I could hear in any room of the flat was a dull boom boom boom. So I started listening to complicated-textured metal and that seemed to make it go away. Headaches are strange, sometimes.

Then went to pub this afternoon. At first it was just me and [livejournal.com profile] psych0naut, but then [livejournal.com profile] nyecamden and [livejournal.com profile] aster13, followed by [livejournal.com profile] shevek and then a surprise afpmeet, and then a [livejournal.com profile] ali_in_london and a [livejournal.com profile] khalinche (not forgetting all the people i'm forgetting, of course). so the evening was full of beer and talking and otherwise enjoyably interacting with nice people.

bedtime for abi now.

after a relatively good weekend (but still not good enough to risk going clubbing saturday), monday and tuesday were not the best days for headaches, but neither did i need to take anything. today, destruction noises are really starting to get to me along with other things, so have taken 50mg sumatriptan. we'll see.

yesterday and today have been a bit worse for pain than the weekend, but so far it has not been entirely incapacitating. by this point i would usually have taken painkillers. looking forward to early night this evening, and then all being well, going to loos meet on thursday.

i want to go see the Comedy Store Players (for those of you who don't know, this is essentially the original stage version of Whose Line Is It Anyway, still going) one Wednesday in the next few weeks. anyone up for this?

posted house keys to [livejournal.com profile] notajeep.

worked late monday & tuesday; experienced what i assume to be a migraine-aura yesterday (flashy zig-zag multicoloured lights; pretty, albeit totally distracting.). despite having migraines i don't ever remember getting one of those. so made sure to not stay too late today. this is made easier by the fact i'm crossing more things off my list of things that had to be done by last friday than are being added to it.

is it significant that 'chant' is a fragment of the word 'enchanter'?

been sleeping really badly all this week, and bad headaches. had to go home from work early on friday because i wasn't physically capable of looking at monitor anymore.

had recovered enough by this morning to go shopping in nottingham with [livejournal.com profile] vjbseven where i utterly failed to buy any cool new clothes. i did however get a copy of The Dark Knight Returns which I am now reading. early night tonight though, I think. (insofar as post-11pm is early).

another migraine. i don't know what triggers these off. i haven't done anything out of the ordinary today or anything.

i was told some years ago by a headache doctor that they weren't "real" migraines, but just tension-related hedaches or something. and that if i relaxed they would go away. which kind of feels like i'm being blamed for them

but i don't see how. i get kpain, right now mainly behind and a little to the above of my left eye, along with strong light aversion and not liking nloise. they have been incapacitating and i hope they aren't again. if i get a bad one nothing i take seems to stop it.

i need to fix this. it was supposed to be fixed already.
