UGH! Last night was not good. I had a headache all day at work and when I came home I took a long, hard nap. I awoke, felt better and had some dinner. A few hours later it was my regular bed time so I went to sleep. Two hours later I awoke with the worst pain in my abdomen! Up high, not like anything I have felt before...I tried to work it out for about 45 minutes. At 11:30 pm I finally woke J up and asked him to take me to the Emergency Room. I was in a panic, really. I have not felt that kind of sharp pain.
I got into the CRV and we were on our way. The hospital in my insurance plan is only about 7 minutes away. One the drive I was doubled over in pain. The roads here in Tulsa are notoriously bad and the bobbing and jostling actually relieved my pain because it made me burp. A lot. By the time we got to the Emergency Room I figured this pain was just extreme gas trapped right under my sternum. So J headed to the all night pharmacy and picked up some GasX. Two pills and some 7Up later I was feeling a little better. I came home and stayed up until about 2 am and finally fell asleep.
The next morning I awoke and still felt a little burgly in my stomach so I stayed home from work. It was the right choice. After a lot of sleep and staying close the to the bathroom, whatever was plaguing me had passed. I seriously don't ever want to go through that again. I guess I picked up the stomach bug that has been going around my office for the past 10 days. Ew.
