I just had the worst night of my life. I have 2 molars that are really bad and need to get pulled...someday...they don't usually bother me too often. So yesterday I was chewing my lunch and bit down and felt a super sharp pain jolt through my two crappy teeth.
The pain eventually went to a dullish ache, so I was relieved. Then the last 2 nights my neck has been getting out of wack and I wake up with neck pain.
So last night I woke up around 1am with a toothache and a horrible headache. I finally decided maybe one of my heat pads I got for labor would work on my neck. I could barely get the package open and tried to read the directions, but they just weren't registering in my brain. I went downstairs
to try to take a bath since that sometimes helps my neck. I called my Mom first to ask her to pray for me because I was so miserable. Then I hopped in the tub. I felt so weird/icky. I was worried I was going to pass out in the tub or something, so I drained the tub, and went upstairs and told my Husband he needed to help me, I started crying and I told him I really think I'm going to die. He would talk to me, but the words didn't make sense to me. I could hear him, but couldn't figure out what he was saying. And I believe I wasn't making sense with what I was saying either.
He tried to rub my neck and hold me and help me through it all. He's my rock!!
Eventually my head cleared a bit and I was really tired and needed to zonk out(though I think I still was worried I was just going to die while I slept).
Got up at 4am with DH, and he asked me if I wanted him to stay home(even though we really can't afford it, and his boss gets unhappy when he misses), and my head/neck were still pretty painful I didn't think I would be able to take care of 4 kids today without him. I ended up sleeing in his recliner because I couldn't get any pillows to work for me in our bed.
Got up about 8am and though I still have neck pain and a headache if I move quickly or whatever, I feel a lot better.
I've never been that scared in my life. I think it was worse than transition was for me...because transistion you know it will end, and it's bringing your beautiful baby out, where this was just plain miserable. Going to try to take it easy today and do some gentle neck stretches....maybe try a shower.
The thing that irritated me, was that in my opinion, I ate the best yesterday of my whole pregnancy. I got 100g protein, took my vitamins, drank my herbal teas, etc. Maybe my body didn't know what to do with good nutrition!?!
Thanks for letting me vent.
