Doc appointment yesterday - guess it went okay. I was there for 2 hours. The doc wanted to consult with a specialist to make sure it was a migraine and nothing more. I got a call this morning that they want me to come back to the office today for some testing and then have lab work later this week. They are working on getting an MRI approved by my insurance. I think this is way too much for what most likely is a migraine. I know they need to rule out other possibilities.

Ocean swim. Very rough conditions with lots of chop this evening. We cut the swim short. A few people in the group are in taper for Vineman and IM Canada this coming weekend. The swim was taking too much effort for a taper swim.

Problems again during the run. I have never experienced a migraine before, but think I might have had one. Horrible headache, sensitive to light and to noise. Felt very off. So painful. Couldn't run. Spent most the afternoon in the dark with a cold washcloth on my head. I talked to my friend Dave (doctor) this evening. He said these can be brought on due to a variety of factors, including stress and dehydration. I have way too much stress these days!
