About a month ago, I started having the strangest sensation that someone was poking me with a crayon. A crayon inside my skull.
I called my health plan right away, and was told to stay the hell off of ladders and to schedule an appointment with the neurologist.
This freaked me out, more than just a little, because of the cyst full of spinal fluid that was found in my brain six months ago.
However, when I met with the neurologist, he didn't seem particularly worried. Interested, perhaps, but not worried. We scheduled another brain scan, which I was due for, and which I'll be having tomorrow.
Sometime after the crayon-poking started, my ears clogged up. It was annoying, but I really didn't have time to deal with it. Today, I finally met with my primary care doctor, and she had some really interesting ideas about both these issue. She suspects that I have horribly inflamed sinuses, and that's causing both of these sensations.
The scan tomorrow should offer some insight into all of this.
Wish me luck.
