So today I wake up at my normal time and am feeling fine. All of the sudden, severe pain hits me where I normally have pain (right sided area), but 800x worse! I'm laying in the fetal position. My daughter had the flu last week so I'm thinking that may be it. I popped a few pain pills and went to bed. I fall back to sleep, wake up now, again, feeling okay. I can feel the pain as I always do, but I get a creeping feeling that it is about to get worse again. MORE pain pills! This has happened to me for the past few days. The pain medicine always seems to do to the trick. This wouldnt work if it were the flu, right. FYI- no vomiting, fever or diarrhea. I do feel nauseous because the pain is so severe. Thank God I see my doc again tomorrow!
