    YAYYYY!

    not.

    uhg. so basically i had a lot of pain in my leg yesterday in one small spot and it got worse and worse. Today I just fell over because my leg got stiff as a board. And now I'm back from ER. They don't know whats wrong but I have pain killers, I have ice packs, and I have exercises to do. sighh

    I hate going to the doctors. and I waited there for 3 hours. Something VERY uncharacteristic of the care I normally receive. :( anyway so I'm in a lot of pain right now but hopefully it'll all blow over soon.

    UM hospital?

    never heard of it.

    haha its really bad cause i have some substantial PTSD thats triggered by medical facilities cause of some stuff that happened in hospitals when i was a small kid so like they came in and took my blood pressure 4 times because they didnt believe it was right. It was high, dont get me wrong. but not THAAAAT high. Especially after I was like "White coat syndrome" which usually gets docs off my back.

    Just guessing here, but as Robert is from Michigan I would venture to say he meant University of Michigan Hospital. A very fine institution, but of you go there, you're probably REALLY sick, or live close by.

    Sorry to hear you've been having such a $4!7 weekend, Gem. Believe me, you aren't the only one.

    From what you've described it sounds like the doctors think it's a pinched nerve, hence the reason for the exercises. Probably stretching related, right? Like leg lifts?

    Here's just hoping it's just a simple pinched nerve, and not a bit more severe.

    I had something like this many years ago. I was sitting in the recliner watching TV and my leg was hurting, but, I didn't know why. Suddenly, I actually got sick to my stomach and went to ER.

    The doctors there thought it was a spider bite and gave me some medicine. It took a few days for the swelling and pain to go away completely.

    Hope you get better real soon.

    hahahah oh House..

    Well i guess they think its from scar tissue. I had a pretty bad infection there a number of years back and it was treated...and they're not finding any signs of infection now. So I guess i have some scar tissue because it was an extremely bad infection (induced by lyme disease) and its going to bother me for awhile. I hope to god i dont have to take advil forever.

    I seem to find that show far more hilarious than anyone else I watch it with...


    Hope you're feeling better Gemini.

    Next time, I'll ask for your diagnosis. ;)

    But, I've got you beat because I slept at the Holiday Inn Express last night. :D
