It was an ordeal to say the least, and I spent those months wishing I had just died. Because of the pain and swelling I was put on high does steroids. It was not long until I was thrown in to full blown Cushing’s. I gained so much weight. I did not even look like myself, and my memory from those months is still vague. I was just existing, and by the end of that year I could no longer work. Between the headache, Cushing’s, and my bad knees I could not function. I needed knee surgery and I went off the steroids and I think maybe that in conjunction with the anesthesia needed for the knee surgery ended the headache cycle. To this day I really don’t know what made the headache stop. I have always been prone to migraines/headaches and I still get them.
