|Don't worry: I didn't feel the pea. I just couldn't get down anymore!|
And it's not a good thing, because I need ibuprofen to get through the day! Last Monday I woke up with a massive stitch in my side. Which was very painful. During the afternoon I took some pills to get rid of the pain. I thought at first I was constipated, but a few trips to the bathroom soon proved I wasn't. Then on Tuesday it was the same thing. So, I took two lots of ibuprofen during the day. Wednesday and Thursday it was more of the same and I started to get quite fed up with it.
My mum was urging to seek medical help, because it wasn't normal of course. So, this morning I made an appointment and saw my gp for the second time in three weeks. He prodded and pushed, felt and listened and I had to pee in a cup. The pee was good, he didn't feel anything, and it didn't hurt when pushing from the outside. He then prescribed some ibuprofen that I know have to take three times a day. And next week I have to go see him again for a check-up.
