Okay girls, I'm at my wits' end.
I've had a stomach ache (pretty much) off and on since Tuesday. I do have a very high pain tolerance, one of the many gifts of living with endo for more than half of my life, but I'm starting to get worried. As I fell asleep last night I had a brief, panicked thought that it was my appendix (the pain has been localized on the right side), but I don't think that it is since I slept through the night.
I have to admit that I've been eating outside of my comfort zone (read: cheese and corn on the cob) and after the lunches provided at my summer job I know that my poor belly has been working overtime. When we were away at my fertile bf's cottage I dealt with some pretty severe pain, but I had attributed it to not wanting to use the rustic facilities (yes, outhouses -- yuck!).
I took some digestive enzymes this morning after I had some toast (pretty plain, just some jam and margarine). I've been drinking green tea and sitting with my magic bag on my tummy. I'm hoping that the pain subsides so I can continue with my day. We also have a family wedding for Mr. JB's cousin tomorrow night that I absolutely do not want to miss, especially since they have gone out of their way to make sure that I can eat the dinner!
I'm just so tired of having pain. I had a mini-breakdown this morning and I just started blubbering. I don't think that it's too much to ask that since I'm still barren that I can count on being pain-free.
For now I will try to stay away from Dr. G.oogle and perhaps I will take some A.dvil. I'm supposed to meet my teaching partner for lunch so I need to get my giddy up on so I can get ready.
Feeling like this sucks.
p.s. I'm also hoping that the endo hasn't grown back and that I don't have horrible adhesions growing all over my pelvix, but I think this point is understood.
Mr. JB took me to my GP, yes the one that one that I'm angry at, but it was easier than going to the ER. She did a urine test to rule out a UTI and there was some blood in my urine which could be from ovulation (I'm Peak +1 today, so I definitely think that it's from o'ing). I have no pain when I pee and since I've had SO MANY bladder infections I know what my body feels like when I have one. She gave me a prescription for M.acrobid just in case my UTI symptoms get worse over the weekend.
The pain has subsided a bit and I'm resting on the couch with a heating pad. We also stocked up on lots of plain food so I can detox from all of the goodness that I've eaten this past week.
And yes Prayerfuljourney, having tummy issues do suck big GIANT donkey balls. Thanks for making me laugh! ;)
