I'm tired of posting that I'm not feeling well, but....I'm not feeling well.

I've had a sharp pain in my chest on and off (mostly on) for the past 24+ hours. It was bad enough that I had trouble sleeping last night. I've had similar pain before for a short burst, it would hurt when I breathed in, but if I got a big enough (usually very painful) breath, it would go away. This one doesn't go away. If I still have the pain tomorrow, I'm going to call my neuro office and see if they think my medication could be causing it. I'd go to student health, but I'm pretty sure they'd just send me to the ER.

Aside from that, life is busy. I got grades back for the most recent round of exams, and two were much better than I expected (including the Finance exam where I had the highest grade by 19 points). One was about what I expected, which was disappointing. Hopefully I can make that up on the final.

School ends in a few weeks, after which is one summer course, then camp. Pennsic is a yes, and probably some of the regular camping events, but Mike and I haven't looked at a calendar yet.

I just finished reading the second novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series (the series True Blood is based on). I'm really enjoying it, mostly because it is easy to read fluff. I read it in three days. I can't keep up with all the knitting I want to do, and I need to take some time once school is out to update my Ravelry with pics and details.

I think that's everything. I miss my friends. :(

We miss you, too. I'm sorry you've been so unwell!

You can always give me a call if you want company some evening. If I can't make it, I'll say so, but there's always a chance.

so are you still eating meat?

did you have these issues when you were a vegetarian?

perhaps your body just doesn't like it?

just a thought.

I am still eating meat, and no, I didn't have these issues when I was a vegetarian, but by now I've been eating meat for well over a year, so I would expect to have noticed this stuff earlier if it were related. It's an interesting theory, though.

maybe not...perhaps it has taken this long for it to build up in your system?

there could be hormones/antibiotics/etc in some of the products that you have eaten and not others...perhaps its just now getting to the point where its toxic to you....in the same way that NOT eating it would be toxic to me!

an idea

It kind of sounds like my hiatal hernia. Justin DuC has one, too. I got mine as a side effect of some medication I was taking due to a bad asthma flare-up. When it got bad enough to notice, it hurt every time I took a breath because it was pushing on my lung. Maybe your deep breath was pushing a hernia back in? Anyway, it's worth asking your dr about. Mine diagnosed it by thumping on various places in my chest when I was having the pain, and places that should have gone "thud" went "thunk" instead, showing there was air where there shouldn't be. And it never really goes away, but can be controlled by diet. For example, it hurts a lot of I eat too many carbohydrates (especially bread or bagels), and can be reduced with antacids.

Good luck!

Pls not to have chest-pain. It makes me scared.

I hope yours is not mine.

and then there's gall stones, which also sound like your symptons

am so sorry, dear, miss you, but more than that, hope you are seeking out good care and not letting those overpaid egos "mail it in" - the worse you feel, the more important it is to take care of yourself, sigh

let me know if there is anything I can do, no matter how small or silly

hugs
