    Hey Kids.
    Thanks Sharon for letting everyone know about me. I HATE ER's. I spent 3 hours in pain. Pain in left groin & butt area. It got to the point I kept wanting to PUSH/bear down like we did in delivery gals.. FINALLY I get called in. Took 3 gals to get blood from me,. My veins are deep. Did urian straight from bladder, gave me pain meds and I'm sleeping calmly. Dr comes in and says he looked at all the test and couldn't find anything wrong. HELLO? Good thing DH was there and mentioned pressed Sciatic. Dr says Oh yeah that sounds more like it. :shock: Gives me a prescription , sends me home to see my reg Dr. Who won't be back til the 18th. I'm ok, just this dull ache and my bladder took a beating I think from 3 hours of bearing down. Now it feels like I have a full bladder all the time. Sore after I go. I'm resting alot. Doing ice pack followed by hot bath.... I'm still not 100% But hopefully soon. I miss you guys something firce. I haven't sewn in over a week. I just can't sit very long. I get weak fast . Alot of it is from being sore. To clear things up (I read post) THANKS... I didn't break my tailbone.
    I'm gonna go rest, so I'll hopefully get on again in the next few days. THANKS for all your thoughts & prayers.

    Glad you are up and around a little bit. Not really good to stay immobile.

    Sounds the pits Bev, and to be honest I would try and see a doctor sooner, it still sounds like your bladder might be infected, it shouldn't be dragging on this long, don't suffer in silence, go hound the doctors!!

    Take care x

    Hi Bev glad you are at least not in the hospital. Hope your doctor can figure this out! It isn't fun to be in pain! My DH lives with pain every day and it is miserable to watch him suffer.
    Sounds like you have a great DH. Hugs and prayers for both of you. As my husband's care giver I know how much these things take a toll on the spouse. Love to both of you! Rhonda

    Bev, so glad you were able to pop in for a moment . Sometimes it is the small things in life that we take for granted that make us feel better when we are sick. Take it easy and remember we will be here waiting for you.

    Glad you are getting around a little bit Bev. It isn't good to lay around for very long at all. You know that sometimes you have to give the doctors guidance about what is wrong with you....keep squeaking...you know about the squeaky wheel :wink:

    Oh Bev glad to hear it's your siactic and nothing super major but I know that is painful. I wish i could explain how to relieve the pain through a stretch you can do and it works I know I tried it.

    Okay let me see if this works.

    sit on a chair with your back straight place one leg on the other (feet flat) leg bent like a man would sit but your back is straight. Now take your bent leg and pull to your opposite shoulder hold for 10 secs. if possible repeat 5 times now do the same thing to the other leg. Do this 3 times a day, and it should stretch it out in a couple of days. Good Luck

    Take care of yourself and take those pain meds when you need them.

    It sounds like it could even be a kidney stone, with all the pain.

    Bev ~ glad to hear that you are feeling some better. Hate that you can't get into the Dr. until the 18th. Even thought they checked at the ER, I would have the bladder & kidneys checked again. You have the classic symptoms of a bladder or kidney infection ~ and they are NO fun :evil:
    Hope you get some relief soon.

    My first guess would be kidney stones. I've never had them but know they can be extremely painful. Push for good care, don't let them tell you to wait. Peacefull vibes coming your way!!!

    Prayers coming your way.

    I would see a doctor sooner. Your doctor has a releif doctor to take his place while he is gone. Never wait. It could get serious in a hurry.

    Prayers and (((HUGS)))

    Lordy girl you sure can get in a bind.....it's awful when nothing helps sounds like the pain pills only take the edge off.....

    Make sure you drink plenty of Cranberry juice....6 to 8 glasses a day and take this over the counter pills called Cystic....that is good for the bladder....

    If your back is out go the the Chirorpractor.....worth a try....

    Sure hope you get better befor the 18th for heavens sake....Bless you Bev!......
