the botox injections were done two weeks ago now. they haven't been helping the headaches at all, unfortunately; still getting one every day, and they usually come back after the sumatriptan wears off, which sucks. yesterday i updated my neuro on this, per his request, and he put me on a two-week run of methergine to break the cycle. started working immediately, thank goodness. also discontinuing the concerta for a while (i take that for the narcolepsy) because it seems to aggravate the headaches.
anyway, a few days after the botox injections, i noticed that only the outer arches of my eyebrows would move--the center of my forehead stayed put no matter how much i tried to move it. just now i noticed that the left eyebrow will not move at all now. the right one will still move at the outer arch, but that's it. the rest of my forehead is staying. put. it is weird to look in the mirror and see that happening.
anyway, we'll give the botox more time. i have the next round july 9, which is after maryland sheep and wool and after ashokan, so i'm very grateful for a couple of weeks of no sumatriptan (not allowed to take it if a headache breaks through while on the methergine) so i'm more likely to have a few left for traveling.
it's been a difficult week for so many people. been holding them in the light along with everyone else, and i hope that their worlds become peaceful and that they can heal.
