I posted on the Facebook group about my situation and asked for advice before seeing the doctor and everyone pretty much said to get a blood test, that I should just rest more, etc… But nothing really helped.
On Thursday, I’ve had enough of the headaches so I decided to do pretty much the one thing I thought of doing in the last three weeks but haven’t done yet: go back to polyphasic sleeping.
On Friday, I felt much better. Just a residual kind of headache. Still there but not very bothersome. I kept Maayan company at work and then we went to meet some friends for dinner.
On Saturday, the only thing that was left of the headache was a tiny fraction I could ignore. Everything felt better. The world looked better. I had more energy than I had in a while. I felt less stressed. Then we stayed up until 4:00 to finish a puzzle. <shrug>
And Sunday I went back to work. I’m not at a 100% yet but I put in a full day with no problem. I even napped properly and benefited from it.
And now I’m sitting here writing this. Yes, it’s after 2:00. But, besides some tiredness because, well, it’s 2:00 and I’m not reacclimated yet, I feel great. I don’t even feel a headache.
I posted an update to my Facebook thread about what I did and what happened. Then someone replied and said I’m addicted to polyphasic sleeping. I’m not sure it was meant as a completely comedic comment. And I’m starting to think there might be some truth to that.
