Something has changed in the ramp up to my starting full time March 1st with this company from part time consultant status (the difference between 35-40 hours a week and 50-60 hours, its silicon valley after all).
Some of the symptoms come back in a light way. Slight numbness of left foot/toes and hand, but more disconcerting is the pulsating pain/pressure that I now have in the roof of my mouth. I feel it and it seems to coincide with my heart beating. This is new. Its unpleasant. Its frightening. I notice this peaking particularly while at a conference I am attending on the company's behalf, and towards the end of the day I am having a harder time focusing on the topics at hand and getting a particularly washed out feeling that will be repeated over the next year while under higher stress.
Did I just have a new bleed? I call to discuss with the neurosurgeon's office, and its suggested that I get a new MRI done. I just had one done but this had been done with a different medical facility and this new MRI will be done to this doctor's specifications as its the radiology group out of UCSF.
