I was out and about today; had a dental appt. and right before I went inside their office, the low back pain I've been having for the last 3 or 4 days suddenly got horrific. So while I was waiting for my appt. (I was early) I called my pharmacy to ask about that one pill I've been taking that I mentioned in another post. I thought it might be affecting my kidneys but she said she didn't think so and told me to see my Dr. I was holding back tears through my dental cleaning and they even offered to do it another day, but I told them to just do it.
So I left and went immediately to that kidney doc's office only to find it empty and closed. My reg. Dr. is right down the road so I drove there knowing that it was closing time but I was in such pain. He was still there but the place was quiet as a mouse, most of the workers had gone home. I saw my doc and just started bawling, trying to tell him what was wrong. Told him that I wished I had never went to that other Dr. blah blah blah. I was a mess. He told me to go to Prompt Care b-cuz the lab people had left for the day and to make an appt. w/him for later in the week.
I did that and luckily it wasn't crowded. I couldn't sit down as that was the worse pain; the process of sitting down and then getting back up, so I paced. Even in the back room I paced. When the Dr. came in, I stood the whole time. Come to find out I have a UTI and a really bad one he said. I wasn't aware of any symtoms for a UTI so it really surprised me. So now I'm on antibiotics and Vicodin for the pain. And I'm finally starting to feel better. How did the cave women do it? Did they just die or what? So anyway, I get to go back Thurs. to see my reg. Dr. and feel like a real jerk for barging into his office at closing time, but it's quite possible I'm not the first to do such a thing, right? Pls. say yes LOL
