    When I went in to have a hip checked, after the x-ray, the doctor came in and with a very serious tone said, “it seems like a classic case of TMB.” I fell for it, and obligingly asked, “What’s TMB?”

    ”Too many birthdays.”


    ****er.

    Kind of wondering if I'm going to be in the same boat eventually. I did something to it eight years ago. Not entirely sure but I have always suspected it was when I took a swing at a bouncing soccer ball and missed during warmups. A day later I was very sore. Eventually hurt to sit.

    Now I ****ed up my hip. Likely because of exertion and strain from using other muscles for the back. This feels like a fcucked up hip labrum. I messed mine up almost 8 years ago to the day. Healed after a couple weeks. Excruciating to bend over, sit down, or stand up.
    My SIL played hockey for Bowdoin. Apparently, and I only learned this via her need for surgery, that when women play hockey, the leg and hip positioning during the game can cause XYZ thing that then leads to a tearing of one or both of their hip labrum. She’s now in discussion about a hip replacement for her right hip joint because the labrum repair surgery only lasts so long.

    I’m in a similar situation for my left shoulder, only my timeline is longer before eventually replacing it.

    Well, all signs were pointing to a herniated disk.

    Barely slept the nights previous to last night. I was able to make it the entire evening without ice packs or nsaids. I'm also able to stand and sit for longer periods of time. Which seems quick for the constant pain to fade for a disk. I also have full range of motion except for bending forward, which is still painful.

    Either way. My posture has improved almost overnight. Which certainly helps. Hopefully it's just a frightening muscle pull because I have to fly to Missouri for work on Monday.

    Have talked to my ophthalmologist, basically same causation as the normal kind of migraines, just presents its symptoms visually. No lasting damage or anything. Basically should count myself lucky I don't get the headaches with it.

Now I just recognize the first symptoms and plan accordingly.
    Did you talk to the doctor about that? That sounds pretty intense and i would definitely look for a reason of that. In our family there is another issues, my husband, kinda young man has already first signs if ED and he needs to buy viagra online from time to time. The worst thing about it - he doesn't want to talk to anyone as he feels ashamed or something.

    Whoa. I'd have called 911 the first time that happened. Sounds insane

    Not everyone has noise and light sensitivity. Sometimes light makes it worse for me, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it's only certain types of light or certain frequencies of sound.

    And not everyone is going to have migraines that are debilitating for days.

    Nope.

    My mom had migraine, this was not that. No aura, no light or noise sensitivity. I respect the term migraine because I saw what it did to her. This was a headache -- an extremely sharp one, but just a headache with no bells and whistles.

    Maybe somebody shot me with a crossbow from close range and I didn't notice.

    The thing is I am prone to headaches anyway, and I am Extremely Old, so I have pretty much felt it all. The only thing about this was it just didn't fit any of the 10+ categories I have experienced before. It had novelty. It held my attention.



    It's gonna be really ironic if it's a tumor.

    it sounds like a migraine. I get them. They go from like a 1 to "I need to stop being conscious for a while" quickly or in some cases over several hours.

    if I start to get the signs of one, I pop a couple ibuprofen and chug water. Usually try to make sure I've had my coffee as well. If it gets worse, I go lay down for a couple hours with an ice pack on point where my spine and skull meet and then one on my forehead. Migraines suck the life force out of you. Mine usually are right behind the eyes. I wouldn't necessarily call it sharp, but certainly not like a dull achy "normal" headache. Which it sounds like yours are as well.

    if it happens again in less than a week, go see a doctor. You might still want to see a doctor anyways

    Had a weird experience today. Go to work feeling maybe a little tired but nothing bad. Three hours into the work day I am on a call, and within a couple minutes I go from zero to a headache I would rate as an 8 on the pain scale. I was a brave little toaster and ran 22 more minutes of the meeting and wrapped it up. Got off, immediately popped 2 Tylenol and packed it in for the day. Got home, still at an 8, crawled into bed, slept 2 hours until I had to take kitty to the vet.

    When I woke it was gone. Nothing.

    The only time I have ever had such a severe headache come upon me so quickly was food poisoning.

    I am a connoisseur of all kinds of headaches (child of a mom with migraine though happily I have never had one) since I was in my 30s and this was a new one. Anybody had this before? Sharp -- not dull -- like a knife cut, above both temples and a shade dorsal. Constant, not waves. I cannot exaggerate just how off the charts it was.
