I ended up having some drama yesterday. For about a week-and-a-half, I had pain in the lower right hand side of my stomach. At first, I thought it was muscle strain from drum circle. I was playing the African drums, and you have to hold those between your thighs. My inner thighs hurt like crazy after it was over, and my stomach issues started up not long after that. I also didn't think I had appendicitis because I wasn't feeling particularly feverish. Late last week, I had made the decision to wait to see the doctor until October 4th as my husband was changing jobs and we would be on new, and a little bit better, insurance. That, and we wouldn't have insurance Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

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.
