When Your Headache Won’t Go Away…

I think the not wearing glasses bit has finally gotten to me. At least it did yesterday. I don’t know how many times I took Tylenol, but none of the doses seemed to get rid of my nagging headache. I’ll be so glad when I get those glasses back.

Of course, now I wonder how long that prescription will last. Finding out I have a cataract forming on my right eyeball kind of shocked me. And irritated me, since the doctor knew about this back in October (during my scheduled eye exam) and didn’t seem fit to mention it then. Because I’m pretty sure I would have remembered being told that.

Anyway… because of the headache, I don’t have much to say. Hopefully the pain will be gone by the time this post airs and I’ll wake up all rested and ready to walk.

That’s if my knee isn’t acting up. I swear, I’m falling apart. Leaky heart valve. Funky eyesight. And arthritic knees. Aaack!

So… How has your body reacted to getting older? (I refuse to say old age, since I don’t feel old.)

**fingers crossed for a good week**

Usually not wearing glasses helps eye strain.

Have you seen an opthalmologist about your cataract? The lens replacement surgery is routine now. I'm glad I did mine. No more Coke bottle glasses.

My doctor said the cataract isn't of a concern now since it's correctable with glasses (heck, my distant vision is better now than it was before--near is worse). I just don't know how often my eyesight will change. At least they're not charging me to replace my right lens in my glasses!

About three years after finally getting bifocals, my vision changed just enough to make the bifocals useless. Garrr. Hope you get past your headaches soon!

Jeff - I hope the headache goes away, too. Got my glasses back this afternoon, so I'm hoping tomorrow is a better day.
