If it's appendicitis i'mma have to have my appendix removed. I hope that's not it but that just begs the question why im in so much pain
silvermyth · 9 weeks ago
I hope you don't have a dissection or anything like that. Good thing is that appendicitis is common enough so doctors should know how to take care of it. How long have you had the pain?

Have you seen a doctor yet?

2 days. Started yesterday but didn't do much but rest so it didn't bother too much but since i went to work today it just brought the pain from a 5 to an 8 outta 10.

Yea, he's the one that prescribed the pain med and to get the ct scan waiting on bloodwork and an open spot at this point

It will be good to get the results back. I'm guessing the pain is on your right side?
metalman · 9 weeks ago
Yeah, right side
metalman · 9 weeks ago
So that was quick af. I'll have the results in about 30 they said

Appendicitis can get pretty serious, so they tend not to move slow on it. But it's also fairly easily dealt with. There are a couple other possibilities I could think of it being, but not much point speculating when the results are coming shortly.

How are you holding up?

Im good just chillin as best i can. Shit still hurts
metalman · 9 weeks ago
Tests all came back negative. So alls good there but the pain im getting is pretty bad so idk. They said to give it a couple days and if anything persists then we can see from there.

I wonder if it's not a kidney stone, then. But idk if they tested for that or what symptoms you have other than pain
metalman · 9 weeks ago
No gallstones or kidney stones. Im not sure what it could be so i'mma just soldier through it
xvarnah · 9 weeks ago
Well there's always potentially extreme muscle strain. Hopefully it gets better though. At least you get to keep your appendix at least

I hope you feel better soon and figure out where the pain is coming from.

Any updates?

The doc said that it's basically 1 of 3 things
1. Extreme constipation (I know it isn't that)
2. Severe muscle strain (might be it)
3. Or my body just saying hey fuck you. (Apparently that happens sometimes)

My mother actually had a similar experience a few months ago. She was in pain for a few days up her back and then it got so bad she couldn't sit, stand, or really walk without pain. Ended up in the hospital, where they thought it was a kidney stone and gave her morphine, but it turned out it was actually that she'd strained/torn the muscles in her back really badly

If it's that for you, and you're still in pain, I would highly recommend a heating pad. It cane take a couple weeks to heal. Even if it's just your body saying fuck you (I always thought that was what happened to women once a month, but apparently the body doesn't discriminate), a heating pad or compress may help.
