Thanks For the Advice....

Thank you so much everyone. I took her into the ER tonight....really didn't want to due to no insurance, but she couldn't kick the headache and the nausea.
We are scheduled for an MRI tomorrow morning. If nothing is found then we will see the neurologist and start treating her for migraines.
Dr's didn't think it was blood sugar levels. He thinks it is more neurological based on what she described to him.
She knows what she feels better than I do. I just feel bad that I have let it go on for so long. I really thought it was just stress.
The blood tests that they ran came back okay, other than her WBC was off just a bit. She hadn't eaten anything since 11:30 am because of her nausea, so they said if it was blood sugar issues it would have shown up.
I dunno, all I know is that I have one brave little girl who didn't even flinch when they took her blood, and sat there and talked "girl talk" with me the whole time we were there.
Andy is going to go with me tomorrow to take her to her MRI, and my sister is coming over to watch Rhett.
Dr. said I can call the hospital after 1 pm MST and get the results. All I know is that I am scared and she is sleeping with me tonight. She has had some Zofran and Morphine and is sleeping peacefully, now I am going to try and do the same thing.......Andy might have to sleep on the couch tonight between Rhett and Boo being in bed with us.
Sorry Babe.

I'm glad you took her to the doctor. Sorry it wasn't something as easy to identify and address as low blood sugar. Hopefully, the MRI won't find anything serious. Didn't she hurt her neck over the summer? Could it maybe be a pinched nerve from that? I don't know, just trying to help you find some answers. Keeping you all in my prayers.

So sorry! MRIs are terribly expensive - even with insurance we end up paying over $500 for one. I hope you are able to figure out what is going on.

Much love.

Oh, don't feel bad. We waited for our son for a long time, too. I pray everything's OK. It's sad if she's dealing with migraines already. I will pray for your family tonight.
