I had a terrifying night last night. I honestly was scared I was going to have to go to the emergency room. My upper back and front area was on fire, and just SO PAINFUL. My shoulder is still really achy, and my abdomen is still not happy, but minus some major muscle pain in my left arm, all of the pain was on my right side, radiating from the muscles surrounding my ribs (I could feel the tightness) to the front of my chest, in my sternum.
I’m alive, and a few Tums helped me get some sleep. I literally face-planted into a doorframe yesterday (high bed plus klutzy Sarah means it’s not the first time, nor is it the last), so I wasn’t able to take the pain meds I’d usually take, and I think that reeked some havoc on my system as well.
I’m doing better, nearly 24 hours later, with just some gas, courtesy of another med I had to take. Josh picked me up some iron supplements, and I could FEEL those kicking in. They also have Vitamin C, so I’ll be getting some of that as well. I’m supposed to take a multivitamin, because my body sucks at absorbing nutrients like it should but I don’t. The iron supplements, at least, keep that part of my body functioning.
