New pain meds-still no relief

Had to leave work early today again. I am so afraid I am going to get fired for missing so much but my head hurts so bad it hurts to lift it. I go to the endocrinologist tomorrow morning to find out what the plan is for my thyroid and my doctor said today he is going to call the rhuemy because I am not showing any signs of getting any better-seems to be getting progressively worse. My vision is very blurry, the left side of my face is numb and tingling, the left arm and the left leg are doing likewise-doc took my bp and said he does not think I am having a stroke just problems related to the flare which was a relief but at the same time, I need a break from the pain!! He put me on 20 mgs of oxycontin to take every 12 hours. I took two even though it was not 12 hours and still no relief...........he is sending me to a pain management clinic so hopefully they will be able to come up with a combination of pain meds that will at least allow me to function...........this is crazy-MY HEAD HURTS SO BAD-I feel like it is going to explode. It has been doing that since I opened my eyes today and as the day progressed my vision got blurrier and blurrier......I can see just real foggy like I am not really seeing anything but shadows and outlines kinda-I do not know how to explain it. Anyway that is today's update-just a lot of groaning. LOL NAMASTE
