Recently I've been going through these weird intestinal pains which started last week when my stomach reacted violently to too much protein. I've kind of always been pretty sensitive to protein/ electrolyte replacement drinks, but this was over the top. I couldn't sleep, I had a slight fever, I was nauseous, had no appetite, and I almost fainted. I was feeling weak.

I had to drop my Physio class due to me being horrible at Physio, plus my professor was a Nazi and gave a quiz for attendence every day....so if you were 5 minutes late you were absent...and this was an 8 am class.....but the point of mentioning that is that I basically dropped it right after I got proof of matriculation saying I was a FT student so I could continue under my mom's insurance for the semester. But dropping the course brought me to be a PT student....so then I went to this new doctor my friend recommended to me...and he had me go fir an X-Ray of my abdomen and I have a sonogram on Saturday morning...plus a blood test on Saturday as well because I haven't had one in two years....and I'm terrified the insurance company will drop me and leave me with the bills, which wl definitely be over 1,000 bucks.

The doctor felt my stomach and basically told me I'm severely backed up...so it could be I irritated my digestive system...or I have gallbladder disease plus impaction, but I'll have to find out next week. Hopefully it's not my gallbladder. But in googling I scared myself because some people who take my birth control get gallbladder disease as a result. Which makes me hate taking BC even more, but my period without BC is pretty much unlivable and probably contributed to my poor quality of life right up until getting on it.

In short, I hope I'm not going to pay a price I can't afford, in both respects.

That really sucks, Sars. Hopefully it's nothing too serious. I had a similar problem once and the doctor thought it was my gallbladder because it was so swollen that she could literally feel it by touching my stomach. I went to the hospital and everything, had 10391039 tests. In the end, it just turned out to be IBS.

I blame chartwells for leaving lifelong damage.

Anyway, I hope it all works out :)

Maybe it is just IBS. I feel so much better today, even though my stomach is still sore on my right side.

XD oh god, I blame Albany.

How is teaching going for you?

I had my gallbladder taken out and I'm just fine. ...*chokes, dies...*

No, really. It's a "fairly major surgery", but oh so simple and nearly painfree...nearly.

But, no use getting all worked up about it just yet. Could just be IBS like your one friend said. Are you still getting lots of fiber? Or...possibly too much? I was getting too much and started getting backed up. So I cut back.

Anywayz...*hugs* look into whether or not your college has a company that does insurance for students. I think mine did.
