Holy crap, so I went to the trigger-point reflexology place tonight for a cheapo half-hour head-and-feet massage to see if that would help the headache. It was great; IDK if trigger-point or reflexology actually work but a super hardcore focused massage definitely does something.

But he was about five minutes into the head massage when he pressed his thumbs down on my jaw and something on the left side of my face BURST. Like, that side’s been sore for a week, but he pressed on it and it was like there was a teeny tiny water balloon in there somewhere. We both felt it pop.

The rooms are not entirely private, because you don’t undress for the massage, so there were two other people also getting massage work done, which meant we had to keep quiet. But he froze, and then leaned over and whispered, “What just happened?” and I was like “I don’t know!” and he was like “Are you okay?” and I was like “I don’t know!” but I wasn’t bleeding or, like, leaking anywhere, so eventually he just kept going.

My headache isn’t gone, but it’s a lot better, and it has shifted around, so I guess there’s that. Also my nose is running like crazy. 

Maybe there was a poltergeist in my face.

Could you have had a little pocket of infection? Either tooth or sinus? Perhaps that's the cause of your headache and the cause of that sensation.....

Very odd!

Well, given I now have a sinus AND ear infection, it sure seems like maybe...

I used to work as a massage therapist... The body does strange things when you pay attention to it... Hopefully you are feeling better!

I kinda want a massage now....

Sounds like you burst an abscess. It should heal now that it can drain normally.

Gahhh!! Sounds like you have an infection of some sort! You should really see the doctor! Glad it didn't make things worse though (and that it made you feel a tad better!)

Yuck. Bodies can be so damn weird. Hope you feel better soon.

And on the tumblr side....you know everyone's gonna want to read those Guides To Doing Things, right? grin.

Pokes. Your fault for making them sound like sequels to Other People Can Smell You.

That sounds really scary - hope you're doing better now.

Regular massages are my gift to myself every month. I honestly consider them part of my healthcare. It is amazing how much better you can feel after one, especially if you've got a particular area that's feeling bad, or if you're in a desk job where you don't get a ton of movement, so your neck/back/shoulders get hunched up or whatever from sitting over a computer all day.
