Well, things changed on Monday and Tuesday when the pain got worse. Tuesday night, I tried to resume my daily walk, and ended up turning around early because my stomach was bothering me. When I was in bed, I reached to pick up my cat, who was at the foot of my bed, and felt a sharp pain-- yeow! On Wednesday, I made an appointment to see my doctor after work. She took my temperature, showed me the thermometer, and said, "you have a fever." This floored me because I wasn't feeling particularly feverish. She felt my forehead and said, "yeah, you're warm." So...she poked and prodded some more, I said ow, and she decided that I needed to go to the hospital to have a CT Scan done to make sure I didn't have appendicitis. Joy.
I went home, dropped off my stuff from work, picked up doomsey, and we high tailed it over to the hospital. They made me drink that Barium crap *ugh* and three hours later they did the scan. Fortunately, it wasn't appendicitis so I didn't have to have surgery. They did, however, find a cyst on my ovary, which is what they think it causing the pain. And I understand that those can hurt like a mofo. So...I'm back at home. I haven't heard anything from my doctor yet, but I have a feeling that they're not going to be able to do much for it except monitor it.
Yeah...I have a feeling I'm going to be popping a lot of ibuprofen over the next couple of days.
