i wasn't feeling well, got that weird feeling that a uti was coming on. drank some cranberry juice, which usually helps, but it didn't. bought some over the counter stuff, which usually works immediately, but didn't.
so sat am instead of enjoying friends & the beach, B took me to the ER. after a few hours they sent me home with some meds & all was better.
for a few days at least.
on tues my back started hurting, on weds am, i puked & was in bed all day long. i was nauseous, my back was killing me & my joints ached. my elbows hurt! what kinda crazy is that? i was in so much pain i couldn't sleep & knew if i couldn't sleep i couldn't get any better so finally at the end of the day i gave up & had B to take me back to the ER.
this time the wait was several hours, which didn't help my aching back in those ridiculous chairs & i could smell EVERYTHING making me even more nauseous. then the very knowledgable triage nurse has the odassity to ask me if i thought i was constipated? where do they get these people?
so when i finally get back there, it's confirmed the uti had turned into a kidney infection. so i got more drugs, but more importantly, she gave me something for my tummy.
update 6/23 - i went to my regular dr today, she looked at my lab results & said i actually had only a minor kidney infection. i hurt something awful & don't ever want to know what a bad one feels like!
