How exciting, I’m listed in iTunes Music Store now.  Now I need to do what I should have done before I started this podcast stuff – come up with content.  Ha!  That gets a Homer Simpson d’oh!  The original podcast I submitted to iTunes didn’t have any keywords like migraines, etc so I doubt anyone will find me that way.

I was coming home from work on the freeway flyer bus route and the ice pick started digging its way into my left temple.  I tried to ignore the pain but by the time I got to my car, it hit me full on.  I took two Excedrin on the bus but it was too late.  I sat in the car for a while until my eye stopped watering and put the air on full blast on my face.  Luckily it’s a five minute drive home and the traffic worked with me.  I got home, emptied the dishwasher and crashed on the bed for an hour.  I woke up feeling like I went on a bender.

I’m going for bloodtests tomorrow (actually today since it’s 1am) since my new doctor wants me to get the full workup.  He was amazed at the stuff I’ve tried for the migraines: Topamax, Depakote, Verapamil, Indocin, every single triptan, and others.  He couldn’t believe that the metoprolol (beta blocker) that I take for my hypertension does nothing for the migraines.  Then again, they might be worse without it.  He’s not a neuro, just a internist so he feels that finding a neuro in my new plan is important.  He referred me to someone he knows but I haven’t taken the time yet to check my doctor list.  Crappy thing is we’re getting Humana in January and I may have to switch AGAIN.

Enough for tonight.  I think I’m going to try another audio blog entry this weekend.  We shall see!
