I've been having a "pinchy" pain in my lower left abdomen for about a week now. Last night the pain increased and this morning I felt better for about 3 minutes and then felt like I was going to pass out with pain, sweats and nausea. I managed to squeeze in a healthy anxiety attack in there too.
Poor SM. Yanked from a deep sleep with his wife yelling at him to call 911.
A 6:00 am emergency room visit, 1 CT scan and 3 hours later and I've been diagnosed with a good sized kidney stone about to drop in my bladder with 2 more hanging out in my kidney still to come. Oh Joy! My first kidney stone!
But get this...even the Dr said this was weird...Everything is on my right side. All the stones.
"But all my pain is on my left side." I said to the Doc.
"Yeah...I know it's odd. I read the radiologist's report and went back to look at the scans again myself." He shrugged. "But I'd bet that's the source of your pain."
So I'm hanging out at the house today, hoping for an early Christmas present.
Hopefully with the shot they gave me to dilate my ureter and the percocet Rx sitting on the counter, I won't have a Kramer moment.
