Bloody hell been thinking I was having massive heart problems.... hubby been worried sick and I woke up last night and went OMG I know what this pain is that is killing my ribs! THe stinking hernia is back!!!! ACK Me stomach goes up over my diaphram and until either the stress passes or the stomach relaxes I lay in pain for bleems. I first got it back when I was 18, I am now 33 I think... anyhow had it under control by the time I was about 22ish. Never had a problem again until this last month of massive stress. Felt like someone was crashing my ribs in a vice and making me sick to me tum, I haven't felt like this in 10 years! Unfortunately we are having massive financial issues and with me not having a green card yet I am upset over not being able to contribute financially. Hubby is going over the deep end cause he thinks he is causing me to be so sick when it is my own stress issues I need to deal with... anyhow that said I have $100 in meds I can not afford right now so going to the doc to get something that would ease the hernia is out of the question... other then sleeping on my left side... or just laying there on the left side screaming me head off what else have any of you done to help relieve the pain naturally?? Hope for a brighter afternoon after a nap.... tyvm all!
