Hey all, was wondering if any of you had this happen?
I had vomiting and diarrhea, and really really severe stomach pains. Not the normal flu pains either. It was so severe, that I called my friend who lives across the hall from me to call an ambulance. I had this happen another time too, like within six months of this one where I ended up in er.
I did have a blockage last fall, where I had a five day hospital stay. So of course, I was worried about it being this again. However they gave me an iv and lots of morphine. They also took an x-ray of my stomach and everything was okay there. They were figuring it was probably intestinal flu which is what they thought the last time I was in er too. I did stay overnight because they wanted to manage the nausea & pain, and by then I was dehydrated as well.
They also did an ultrasound for gallbladder problems but that turned out okay. I am just so worried because if it really was just the flu, I am going to end up in the emergency room every time. The pain was so unbearable. And then, as if being sick wasn't enough, it put me in a fibro flare. At least that's what I'm assuming it was. My nerves endings were soooo senstive. I could not stop crying, from the pain in my stomach, from just not feeling good, and then when they rubbed my arm with alcohol it left a huge red mark and he wasn't even rubbing hard. But I was crying so hard because that hurt.
It's been over a week and I'm still not feeling the best. I have had four surgeries on my stomach before, plus I have ibs. I have had two laproscopies, one stomach surgery to remove scar tissue, and a total hysterectomy/appendectomy. I have an appointment this coming up week with a gastrologist, so I'm hoping that they can tell me what is wrong. Or maybe it was just the intestinal flu. But anyway, was just wondering if any of you have anything similiar happen? God Bless
