It started yesterday in the early afternoon. At first I assumed that I bladder infection and it was affecting my kidneys. I was pretty positive that it wasn't simply back pain because it didn't really feel "right" for a pulled muscle, and I hadn't done anything to pull a muscle, and it went away after awhile. Then, last night, it came back with a vengence!
I won't give you too many gory details, but when I started throwing up from the pain, and could barely stop crying, we decided it was time for me to go to the hospital. It took about an hour and a half before the doctor was able to see me and proscribe pain meds. Oh my goodness! It felt MUCH longer than that. Especially since the first dose of anti-nausea medicine didn't exactly work...
After some tests it turns out I do have a bladder infection (I had just been assuming before), and a kidney stone. It's about 3mm. Which apparently isn't that big, but believe me, it's enough to cause a TON of pain!
Today hasn't been too bad. I can feel the effects of the infection in that I'm extra tired and achy, but I was still able to go for a walk this morning. Mo started back at school this morning so Mom took the day off work so there would be someone here if things get worse. I was glad she was here too! When the pain did start this morning it was nice to have someone else get me a glass of water and the pain meds. Which worked their magic! Left me feeling a bit loopy, but I'm not in agony, so I don't mind!
Now I'm just hoping and praying that the stone passes quickly. Not much else I can do. They've got me pumped full of meds and I'm drinking lots of water and cranberry juice!
