What a week

I have had the worst week.

Last wen I started allergy shots. Also came down with a horrible headache, figured it was the progesterone crash as I'd stopped that Monday. I alway get a headache/migraine before AF. AF started Thursday. By Saturday it hadn't gone away but I figured since my progesterone was finally at a normal level that it was just a harder crash and hoped it would be gone by morning. started my clomid that night as well. Sunday came and still a migraine, now it was getting worse. I called and talked to the on call RE to see what she thought and she said it shouldn't be the progesterone crash at this point and that I could take NSAID's until cd12. I thought oh thank goodness ecedrine will knock this out. WRONG! Monday came and I just couldn't deal, I called the allergy doctor to see if it could have been a reaction to the allergy shots i had started (thats what I think it was) they said no so I made an apt with the reg doctor. He gave me some migraine med and ordered a CT of my head. The meds gave me some relief but the longer i took them the less they helped. Oh I forgot Sunday night I ran in the store to get my newspapers (had to have my coupons) and rolled my ankle. I knew it was sore Monday but with such a bad migraine I didn't worry to much about the soreness. By Tuesday I knew something was really wrong with my foot. It was pretty purple. I called and made an apt with my foot doctor. Couldn't see me till Thursday. I saw the chiro Tuesday and hopped acupuncture would help me migraine. It did at the moment and he looked at my foot and said he didn't think it was broken but thought I might have torn something. GREAT! By Wen my migraine was so bad I couldn't work, I had sun glass on at my desk and finally wrapped an icepack to my head. My boss finally told me he understood I wanted to work but I looked like crap and needed to go home or maybe the ER. Since I could barely walk and couldn't see straight I went to the ER. 

They did X-rays and my foot was broken, the did a CT and it was clear. The ER doctor thought it was the allergy shot so that made me feel better. After several tries they got an IV and gave me fluids just in case I was dehydrated. They gave me some really good drugs. I was GONE! I remember saying I'm soooo high over and over, I remember my dad picking me up and taking me to eat but I don't remember talking to anyone, texting, nothing. It was pretty funny reading those texts later. The next morning I had slept thru my alarm and called in. I don't remember calling in but my phone and boss said I did. I was out for a whole day pretty much. The ER also put me on crutches and left it up to the foot doctor I was seeing the next day if I needed an MRI. 

Went to the foot doctor Thursday and he said I tore two ligaments in my ankle and so I'm in a boot for 2-3 weeks. It really hurts. I also forgot how much crutches suck, the boots no fun either.

I still have a headache but it's not anywhere as bad. I'm taking the migraine med still and 800mg ibuprofen. I can't take the good stuff durin the day cause he pretty much knocks me out or makes me straight loopy. 

I went to work today and I felt so foggy all day but somehow I worked my 8. I'm down to one sick day the rest of the year. UGH!

With all this crap going on is it safe to do IUI next week? Did I fry my follicles with all these drugs?

Man I need to sleep....some more. 


  1. Yikes :( Hoping you feel better soon! Since you're doing IUI, I think it's safe to move forward... if you were just doing TI, I don't think I'd want to for obvious reasons. I don't think the meds will hurt your chances really, although the ibuprofen isn't ideal if it's something you need then you need it! Don't beat yourself up. Get well.

  2. WOW!! You sure got hit with everything at once! Are you still on the allergy meds if they're causing your headaches?
