Thanks everyone... I dont feel real well and have tried to skim what people have wrote, so forgive me if i dont address everything. Im 24 (close in age to when some of you had gallbladder issues). I decided against the ER for the time being. I know what will happen. Ill get a urine, they will give me a hydro, and tell me to call my doctor. So why not skip the hydro and just try and get in touch with my dr, right? So I went upstairs after i wrote you guys and my tylenol started wearing off. I HATE meds... I like to know whats going on- not necessarily have it temporarily altered. I want to know if im getting better or worse. So i decided i'd watch Gran Torino. I call my mom again and she screams "gallbladder" so I decide to get the nastiest, greasiest thing for lunch- a pizza, and see if i can diagnose myself. I ate it and didnt get sick, along with some milk. Im not too sure its my gallbladder now. I go back upstairs and watch the movie on my heating pad. That did help. It really made me realize that this is very much in my left side of my back, not as much my right, just below the ribs and above the hip... middle to left of the back. I got comfortable enough to turn off the heating pad and I dosed off for a bit (gosh i needed that nap terribly). I woke up about 3 hrs later and turned the heating pad back on. Im trying to control it this way so that i can really use the tylenol through the night. I decided to call my cousin who was my OBs nurse for 10yrs. She said that she agreed that our ER would be a waste of time, as would our after hours clinic. For some reason none will touch a pregnant person with a 10ft pole- and hardly a non-pregnant person. She told me that IF i could make it through the night, and only IF, that I would call in the morning and as an OB patient DEMAND to be seen. She said that that seems to always work. So im going to try my hardest to make it through the night. I havent been very active today, and feel really crummy-- like fever/infection sluggish crummy. My face looks a mess from crying all day, and im still in my PJs and the house is a wreck. I just feel so terribly abnormal. I will definitely be in to the doctor tomorrow, regardless of what happens through the night. And if the pain is anywhere like last night at 2:30 and again at 7:30am ill certainly be at the ER. I cannot go through that again. I think its been a little better today during the day but only because im more active than laying in one place for so many hours. Thanks for all your kindness and stern voices-- i know i need them.
