Hi, I'm in a whole lot of pain..It started early today in my back, like a stabbing pain.

On top of that my lower left side of my ab hurts, especially when I push there!!!( I know then don't push there )

I'm constipated. 3 nights ago i tried a laxative- nothing. Today I tried an enama-nothing!

I've been urinating ALL day. No stinging or anything like that.Just going ALOT.

I'm really getting scared now cuz the pain is getting worse.

I'm on 400mgs. of Doxy thru PICC. I started in mid August.Can one get a UTI on abx??

To walk I'm all twisted up and holding on to my cane.....

I'm ready to go to the ER, but the local ER where I live is a joke!!!!!!!!

has anyone gone thru this, or something like it?????? Please I need some feed back-


Jamie

Guiney-

I am so sorry about the pain.

The first thing that pops into my mind is maybe a kidney stone? If it starts to migrate down left flank--yes--ER.

Any history of abdominal obstruction or bowel?

Ovary problems?

It could be a million things -particularly if rapid onset.

Have you called your Primary Care MD? LLMD?

Please don't just hang in there with it. The ER is important no matter how scummy you think they are if that is all you have nearby.

Don't suffer in silence. Get help now.

Choc.

And get back here to advise what you found out.

Hey little g...

Don't know what it could be? Sorry.

Can you call your doctors office and see what they say to do if you have a problem after hours?

Maybe they page the doctor?

If not.. and they say.. "if you have an emergency, go to the emergency room..."

Well.. I'd rather shoot myself in the toe than go there... especially to YOUR emergency room!

I called there a few minutes ago for you.. and they have a "stop and go" first aid place.. but it is closed for the night.

Soooooooooooo........

Maybe.. if you have a ride.. go to the ER in Chestertown? That is the preferred one in MY book. They don't treat you near as much like a 3 headed toad.

And they won't have medical charts full of garbage that says you are nuts.

I will call ahead for you if you think it would help. Let me know ASAP.

Yes.. you can get a UTI while on antibiotics.. and yeast infections.

I ended up in an ER once with crippling up pain.. in my lower RIGHT side. I couldn't even stand up straight. Like my muscles had "locked" me in the bent over position.

OUCH OUCH.

Turned out I had a white count in the dangerous zone. But it went down quickly.

They thought it was appendix.. but it wasn't.

Post back and let me knkow what you are going to do. ASAP.

I would try to place an emergency call to your lyme doc or whoever is treating you. Then see what he/she says about going to the ER. If you have to go to the ER, the doc may also confer with the staff there....

I have no clue what you might be experiencing, but I do hope you get some answers and feel better.

Way to go, G.

Hoping you are securely resting in that ER and that no ugly monsters have reared their ugly heads. Just how bad is that place???

Hope my thoughts didn't freak you. Have had all the things I listed as possibilities that might be going on with you.

Main mission to get you into the hands of someone before you waited around too long.

I'm sure they will call your PC or whomever your main doc is. If they do that "resident on call" thing, tell them to shove it and get in who you want.

Wishing you the best and hope it's just another "chalk it up to Lyme" thing.

Better soon, I hope.

C.

Where are you little "g"?

I ONLY logged on today to check on YOU!

Check in or I am coming to rescue you from the nightmare palace.

Chocolat asked.. "Just how bad is that place???"

I get angry just THINKING about it. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!

Around here we refer to them as "Hopkins Jr."

That ought to tell you something.. especially knowing how I feel about Hopkins!

There are more IDIOTS in that one place... than there is bran in a box of Post Raisin Bran.

It is UNBELIEVABLE!

I have patients I work with who actually would rather die than go there for ANYTHING! They have made that notion CRYSTAL clear to everyone.. and tis a shame because it has the potential to be a decent place.

I am sure if you swept the place clear of idiots.. only the cat out back scrounging for food in the dumpster would still be around.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr..

guiney, I hope you are better..I just noticed I was a day late on this but other than kidneys, I thought of perhaps a bowel obstruction(from your report), or cyst on an ovary..If breathing is not ok, then suspect it might be some type of respiratory problem..I will pray you are ok and it was nothing too dangerous..

Hope they help you at the er....

sometimes they annoy ya if u have chronic lyme...

yes I have gotten UTI while on antibotics.... it was really weird... I didnt have any symptoms I went to the hospital for something else.

if an enema didnt help im not sure this will but I use senekot -s (with the s is better) its over the counter but its natural and doesnt cause cramping

maybe you can get the dr to give you a precription of Lactulose.... i take it when the senekot doesnt work.

best wishes

Hi, everyone
thank you all for your help and concern. I have been completly out of it since I went to the ER.

I did not have a UTI. I had an xray and it showed I had impaction. They gave me dilaudid and an enama. which did help.
'
I've been so out of it, my family has been very worried. I haven't even done my treatment.

I've basically been sleeping. I've been shaking teribly.Using my cane when up. I went a whole day in bed sleeping with no food. I mde a big mistake and didn't take any of my meds.

I just don't know how much loger I can hold on and do this....The pain is to much.

Again thank you everyone!!!

TinCup, I'll email you.

Jamie
