I'm used to a lot of pain from lupus, so I didn't go in until a week after it got bad, figuring it was just.. pain. Couldn't stand it anymore today so I went to my doc's office, but you have to schedule these things ya know! (they pulled the same thing when stitches were needed, this is a big reason why ER's are crowded, doctors should be handling a lot of this stuff) So I had to go to the ER, which is the same building as his office. Being admitted was an option, but I am home and will just go back if I get to where I can't stand it again. I'm normally not this bad with pain but YIKES! I am sensitive to many meds (another joy of lupus) so I couldn't take what they normally give for pain. So basically taking anti-nausea stuff so I won't puke from hurting and really hoping it passes soon. Hayulp! Please pray this stops. I have been trying to distract myself from severe pain for a good week now, but feel like I have reached my breaking point. I need a break and the longest one hasn't been very long, and now I'm to where I'm actually fearing it. Which is odd for me since pain is so often the norm. But no breaks - I am so done!
