A few months ago I started having little twinges in my side (in the back around where I assume my kidney is) when I rolled over in bed. Instead of going away, they got a little worse, and I started having them if I moved certain ways when I was up as well. I didn't say anything when I saw the doctor because it still wasn't much of a problem, and I really just forgot about it.

Now, however, the pain is getting much worse. It kept me awake much of the night last night, and it woke me up a few times. The pain has gotten really bad, like someone is trying to give my kidney an "Indian Burn" (twisting it both ways with their hands). I'm not having any other of the signs I have read about kidney problems, and my kidney stones (which I haven't had for awhile) never originated in my kidneys. The pain usually hits in such a way that I cry out, so James knows it isn't "nothing." I have a very high tolerance to pain (which is probably why I am usually in need of surgery or hospitalization when I finally go to the doctor for something painful! LOL).

Anyway...

I'm just griping about the pain for now, but yes I am going to see the doctor about it. I have an appointment for Thursday morning. I just needed to complain for a minute.

I thought my elbow was getting better until I leaned on it today...I hope you figure it out, Barbara.

If it is just some kind of muscle spasms I can learn to live with them, but I just don't need any other health issues right now! I don't feel sick, so that's a good thing.

You obviously haven't been listening to the song. It does not say, "Lean on your elbow when you're not strong." It says, "Lean on me!" Take care of your arm!

Goof!

Hey, did you read my last blog entry to see what a STUPID thing I did last week? Sheesh! I'm not sure if it was more old age or tiredness, but I'm sure they both played a part!

I will have to go read it too. I get so remiss about that! I am starting mine back up soon so at least I will be in the neighbourhood.

My wimpy vent - I am loosing the nail off my thumb. I have no idea why, what I did or even when it started. But nothing we have tried will stop it. There is an area that looks like there might be a sliver in it, but there isn't - or maybe it is infected. Now, the cuticle which is still far from the problem is starting to discolour and hurt, and there are tiny scratches on the skin beneath the cuticle which are red and sore.

DH keeps saying I should see about it but between ER trips for my asthma, going to visit my Dad and dealing with his doctors, I don't have the time or inclination to add any more to the mix. But I don't want to lose my nail. And you don't realize how much you use your thumb until you can't.

Told you it was wimpy, but I feel better for getting it out.

I was able to copy my Favorites file to the bookmarks. It's awkward, but usable.

It just think it was really irresponsible to offer an upgrade that didn't fix what was wrong with the previous version.
