So 2 1/2 weeks ago I started randomly vomiting (in public too, not a good thing), IBS type symptoms, and started getting REALLY painful cramps around my belly button and my right side under my ribs. I thought maybe my new MTX dose was making me sick so I contacted my rheumy and was moved back down to .7cc this did little if anything to help. I haven’t been able to eat and going to class was getting hard so today I went to the campus health center.
Dr. Kelly (the university’s only health care professional I trust) ordered stool and blood tests (he knew to check my liver BC of the MTX) but suspects that my gallbladder is to blame for all of this. If all the tests come back negative I’ll be having an ultrasound either late this week or early next one.
It’s really scary getting sick with something *new* when you first move away from home because you don’t know what’s going on, you’re concerned for yourself and there’s no one there to take care of you. Thank God I have my friend Kelsey, my boyfriend Brett, and my sorority sisters. I don’t know what I would do without them.
I’m not sure what best and worse case scenarios are here but I guess I’m going to find out X[
P.S. My fish Greg died, you were a good guard fish greg, happy swimming…
