Eating: Creme Caramel
So, the other night was a fin night. Was at work until midnight, already feeling pain all day alongside weakness and dizziness. I finally got home and after going to the bathroom, major pain triggered in my back as well as pretty much all over my abdomen. I collapsed for a few minutes but managed to stumble out to my dad. At first, he tried to give me a hydrocodone and dismiss it for the night, but after crying for so long, he finally took me to the ER. I had a short wait (about 30 min, going ahead of others that had been there for four hours.) There was another man that was clearly upset about waiting, hearing that I would go ahead of his broken nose, he cussed the nurses out and stormed out of the hospital. After going through triage, I sat down again, having the pain subside slightly. Moments later, I was wheeled back into the ER and had several invasive tests and a cat scan.
We found out that I had kidney stones alongside hairline fractures in my spine. Not a fun combination. When both hit at the same time, it can be very crippling for hours on end. The doctors predicted that the first stone would pass soon, but I don't think it has yet. Sadly, I have a long midnight shift tomorrow, and I am dreading it.
I've been trying to rest the last few days, drinking fluids and whatnot, but the pain is still here, and only my meds from the doctor can knock it out. Sadly, it also makes me rather loopy, too. Not good for work.
Next step is to find a urologist. I have to wait a week before I make an appointment, though. It requires that I have 6 pay stubs in a row as proof of employment.
