So, last Thursday my vision went crazy. I left work, and Joe though, based on my description, that a bad headache was imminent. I took some Tylenol, and a nap.
I called my on Monday to ask about that and several other issues I just wanted some reassurance about. They said if I was to have these visual disturbances again to call in. They’d likely want me to come in to make sure my blood pressure was ok.
this afternoon around 2:30, I began having these visual disturbances. When these happen, I am out of it is the best way to describe it. Like last Thursday i couldn’t come up with my assistant principals name. I know her, I know her kids name. But I couldn’t for the life of me remember her name. Today I sat next to my mom in a parking lot for fifteen minutes and I didn’t know it.
so my on wanted me to go to labor and delivery BC it was after hours. My blood pressure was 100 over 60, which is the low end of normal, but not alarming. I don’t have any stroke symptoms, which they were worried about.
often times women who have migraines will have a neurological shift during pregnancy, which can cause migraines to present in new ways. I have had migraines for 16 years, but I have never had a visual disturbance with them. They want me to call in the morning and schedule me with a neurology consult to make sure there is nothing going on other than that.
we were scheduled to go on a labor and delivery tour tonight at 6. We were being discharged at 540, so I told our nurse. She took us on our own tour right then and there so we could just go home.
i am now exhausted.
