The meds the doctors gave me in the ER a few weeks back ran out a few days ago. The pain came back almost immediately afterwards and has been building up since then. I have an appointment with my doctor… at the end of September. >_< It’s her earliest appointment.
Luckily for me, the meds are available over the counter. One of the doctors I saw when I finally went for treatment, foresaw this happening and suggested that I continue the meds if it does… I just forgot what it was, exactly I was taking and kinda threw the bottles away. >_< I found the release papers from the ER this morning so I’m good to go… yay! Hopefully another two weeks might do the trick. We’ll see.
I think the worst thing about this whole mess is that the doctors are treating me for something, but they honestly don’t know what it is they’re treating me for. The release papers say “not specified” under diagnosed, but the meds are, I believe, for ulcers. I’ve changed my diet drastically to help heal ulcers if that’s the case, but that doesn’t seem to be helping a whole lot. It helps a little. Right now though, there’s a stabbing pain in my back that’s making it quite clear something’s wrong. And I don’t want to go through the hassle of seeing a doctor about it again only to be told they can’t find anything amiss — here’s some meds, go away. We’re still paying off the last trip to the ER. They’re not cheap, you know.
I know I said that this blog wouldn’t be about my health issues, and I try to talk of other things… I really do. But when some angry stomach imp is trying to claw its way out of my insides, it’s hard to think of anything else. >_<
