  • Drove myself to the ER last night. Around 5:00pm I started feeling some sharp pain in my upper right abdomen. Made dinner mate, it got worse. I felt a little off. Felt minor chills and I was tired. Took two Tylenol around 7:15pm, went to bed. Felt ok sleeping on my right side, which is odd since that’s where the pain was, but when I turned on my left side, or on my back, it hurt quite a bit. Took a 600mg ibuprofen around 11:30, and nothing.

    Wasn’t sure what it could be, was worried it was my gallbladder. My mom had a gallbladder attack years ago and I remember her pain. I toyed with trying to sleep it out but I couldn’t. I debated about calling 911, but if I was taken to the hospital I wouldn’t have a ride home. So, I drove myself. I will say, probably the best time to get to an ER is 2:00am, because no one was there and they took me in within five minutes. Peed in a cup, they took blood, did an ultrasound,Mass absolutely nothing. Recommended a CT scan , had that done. Nothing. So, it could be some pulled muscles, which is odd since I barely moved yesterday. Or gas. I thought probably not due to the location but the doctor said your large intestine ropes up that high.

    Anyway, they gave me nothing, told me to follow up with my Pcp and I drove home. Put a heating pad on it, slept a couple of hours. It feels a little better. It’s not my gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or kidneys. Man it sucks getting old.

      • Sorry to hear that scarlet. Hopefully nothing serious or lingering.

        • There’s a gene out there that will determine if you’re on the road to early onset Alzheimer’s, it’s called “presenilin 1.”

          Pre-senile in 1. Whoever named that thing has no fucks left to give, and is an evil genius.

          • On September 16, I fell and suffered a non-displaced fracture of the hamate bone in my left hand.

            I didn't even know that bone existed until I broke it.

              • 4 days ago I got a nose bleed for the first time in my life. A total gusher, ruined every article of clothing I was wearing. Since then I've had three more. None seem to correlate with anything.

                Am I dying?

                I mean, yes, I'm dying, but am I dying faster?

                • It's fall and it's dry some people turn the heat on. Are you taking antihistamines? This is the time of year I get them (now and then again in January).

                      Yeah, I know.

                      Didn't have a cavity until 30. Didn't break a bone until 34. Never had pimples. Been to hospital once.

                        I'm 37 and I haven't had a cavity. Still haven't broken a bone either. Never been to a ho.. wait, there was the time my brother hit me with 2x2. Can't remember if we went to the hospital for stitches or a clinic.

                        • Looks like Mrs burd and I caught covid finally. Took a vacation in Santa Fe/Taos last week. Would feel better if I got it from a real American.

                          the good thing is that there are a lot of right wing political rallies to attend while we’re still infectious.
