Out of the Blue

I woke up last night with a sharp pain in my abdomen, which I would describe as agonizing, which says a lot, as I am freakishly stoical about pain. A quick look at the Wikipedia reassured me this was not appendicitis, as I was missing many symptoms, not to mention the pain was on my left side. It took almost an hour to go away, and it probably wouldn't have been much longer before I gave in and went to the emergency room. I'm still fine now, and my best guess is that I may have been suffering with a kidney stone. I'll probably see my doctor about this Monday, which I can deal with: I am just happy this didn't require that trip to the emergency room, as I have a tremendous aversion to hospitals.

I'm passing a kidney stone right now. After 15 or so, you get used to them. (My largest was 9.7mm, unpassable though. $27,000 in doctor bills [no insurance]). Pains can be in the back, in the front, both, or other places. The pain will come and go as the stone blocks urine flow out of the kidney. If the stone is irregularly shaped, and allows drip past it, you may not feel ANY pain. And despite what people may think, actually passing it out is painless. Good luck if it is!
