My day yesterday...

Since Wed. I had a sharp pain in what I would describe maybe in my right lung? Cause it hurt when I breathed especially a deep breath. I figured it would get better once I got a good nights sleep. But, it seemed to hurt even more when I was laying down and tried to switch sides-etc. I woke up in excruciating pain about 2 or 3 am. When my hubby said he would see about staying home the next day if needed. I eventually got more sleep and once I woke up yesterday and got all ready I called my Dr. unfortunately there wasn't any open appts. I went to the minor care place then.
I described my pain and pointed to where it hurt. They said that wouldn't be the lung but,more around the abdomen. Well whatever -I just know it hurt!! After they checked me out a bit-they said it could be the gall-bladder. They were really starting to worry me asking if someone was with me or if I could call someone to take me to the hospital /E.R. I called my hubby who had stayed home with the kids. Before we were on our way to the E.R. they gave me a shot that made me a bit woozy. The E.R. took awhile of course even though the minor care said they'd call ahead to make it faster-Yeah right!
Once I finally got seen I layed in a bed they talked with me and took my blood. Then they said ok time to get an ultra-sound. I was getting up to go-When they said N0- just lay down and they proceeded to wheel the whole bed with me in it to get an ultrasound. Then took me back to the room. Later they again wheeled me to get an x-ray. I kept thinking it's not everyday I travel by bed! =D After awhile they came back with all the results and said everything looks fine with my gallbladder. And said it's probably just a pulled muscle in the abdomen wall they gave me some pain-killers and sent me on my way. So after about 5 hrs. that was it ?! Geesh! So that was my day. Now, it may take a few weeks to fully recover. I still don't really know what happened to cause it. I just know I told my husband even though he thinks I don't work hard-I must be to pull a muscle like that ;)

I get random pains like that every once in awhile and after going to the doctor three or four times and them telling me nothing was wrong, I just quit going and dose myself in Ibuprofen! Blech. I hope you get feeling better!! At least you got to experience traveling by bed. LOL
