Well, I thought I might have, anyway. Yesterday afternoon I got a little lightheaded, then a shooting pain in my left shoulder, up my neck, and into my jawbone. That was awesomely accompanied by an increase in lightheadedness, and cold sweats. The episode passed within a few minutes, but the sweating stuck around for a bit. The weird ache and tingling in my left arm was there for a few hours. I called my doc to see if I needed to go in or if this was just one of those weird things that bodies sometimes do. She had me come in immediately.
She said it was not a heart attack, but seemed like a vasovagal response. I had chest x-rays to make sure I was not experiencing a pneumothorax. And there was nothing – those came back clear. So, what was it? What caused it all? Unknown. My doc theorized that it was an issue with the trapezius muscle, and that it caught a nerve which caused the tingling. No explanation for the sweating and lightheadedness, other than those can be caused by intense pain.
So, what I have today is a pretty bad lingering headache and I am really tired from the muscle relaxer and pain pill. I mostly just want to go home and sleep for a few hours, but that is not to be.
And in an unrelated note to the universe: I am looking for donor embryos still. Preferably ones with no strings attached. There must be some embryos, somewhere…
