Where did that come from?

My goodness I ended up in A&E last night. I had been absolutely fine all day and then BAM the pain in my lower tummy..had to go in ambulance the pain was so bad. Turns out I have a water infection!!!! A water infection with all that pain...WOW!!

Anyhow I arrived back home about 3ish this morning loaded up with more pills.

Oh well no work for me and my feet up for a couple of days!

Hope everyone else if good?

Hey Jax, gentle hugs.

You have my utmost sympathy. I do hope you are feeling much better now.

About 20 years ago I had a dreadful pain suddenly start in my back - so bad the pain and sudden onset and being midnight and a single mum of toddlers - I called the out of hours surgery and they were sending a doctor ASAP - as well as calling them - I called the girl's father - in case I was to be sent to hospital - When the doctor came out eventually, my ex was already with me - and the pain had gotten so bad I could not stay still - not even to let the doctor examine me. I was almost delirious with the pain - The doctor said it was a kidney infection, gave me two mild Co-Codamol and left saying if the pain did not go by the time my own doctor's surgery opened - then I was to ask my own GP for more pain meds! I paced and paced waiting for the meds to work - and the hours later and no relief I passed out from exhaustion - my ex not at all concerned - typical - and as I slept stayed on the sofa until the girl's and I were awake and I demanded he drove me to get more powerful pain meds I was given enough just to get me through the day. No sending me to hospital - but back home and told the infection's pain was worse than it's bite! - As turned out - by the next morning the pain was gone - But It's not one I'd like to repeat! But what a difference 24 hours makes eh?

Thanks everyone...I was back at A&E last night...why do these things always get worse at night? Anyhow infection spreading and not responding to antibiotics, so given stronger pills and pain killers and sent on my way. I was a a bit annoyed as I had a temp, my BP was up and clearly in pain but made to wait 31/2 hours..!! anyhow hopefully things will improve.

thanks again Jaxx :)
