I have a headache. Not yo' mama's kind of headache. I'm talking about a stressball in the back of my head that wrapped itself around my occipital lobe and twisted it into some sort of convoluted mind fuck. My head feels heavy, like the strength of my neck can't support all of the twisted strained pieces of gray and white matter sloshing around my skull every time I turn my head.
An ache that runs from my jaw to my forehead, starting at my neck, and branching off to pulse in my mandible, and continues to creep up the back of my head, wrapping around everything but my face. This pulsing, radiating, constant pain. It's dull, but localized, and intense. Did someone bash me in the head with a two by four when I was passed out? Did I start grinding my teeth in the night?
It's been a week like this. The last time I felt this sort of pain, especially in my jaw, was when I had my wisdom teeth taken out. But when that was transpiring, I had Vicodin and Darvocet to ease me through. I have found one solution, but I can't take Tylenol and Motrin forever. It's bad for your kidneys. My grandma found that out the hard way: dialysis.
My energy is drained.
What is wrong with my body?
