Might have apendicitis (sp?)
ok, I have had an interesting past couple of days.
To start out the day before yesterday I had to take a standardized test after school. I had some time to kill so my girlfriend and I went to get something to eat. I knew my stomach felt a little funny but I figured I was jsut hungry. I ate and still felt weird. By the time the test is about half way through my stomach is killing me. I have never had pain this before so I figured I just had to really go to hte bathroom.
I get home and chill and still don't feel good. So I sleep in and miss hte first half of the day of school. It hurts to move around and really hurts to cough and sneeze and stuff. I get home after school and my neighbor gives me a quick diagnosis with a "rebound test". In which she basically pushes in on my lower right stomach where it hurt and if it hurts more when she lets off than when she pushes then something inside me was probably inflamed.
So I go to the doctor who tells me to go to the hospital. Get to the ER, hooked up to an IV, take blood, get seen, etc. The white blood cell count was normal so I had to get a cat scan, which was by far the worst part. Then that turned out to be ok so I went home.
woke up and felt a lot better but still went back to see a surgeon. The cat scan showed my apendix was a little inflamed but that was about it. And I take an antibiotic for my acne medication so that me be figting the infection, and either curing it or just hiding the symptoms.
do you drink alot of soda. i heard that causes it. I had similar symptoms after starting my job..i drank soda 24/7 for like three weeks. (brushed my teeth three times a day..fuck paying for dentists and loosing my teeth). then i stopped drinking soda all together..and im better.

that sucks man. i had mine removed on tuesday almost 2 weeks ago. i had the same symptoms except mine started in the middle of the night. i went to the hospital in the morning and they cut that shit out that night. i was lucky that mine did not burst. the surgeon said that they got it within an hour or two of it bursting. when they got it it was already dead. had it burst i could have been in the hospital for 3 weeks.
if i were you i would just get it taken out so that it will not bother you in the future. the only shitty thing is that i cant exercise now for 6 weeks. and you are definately going to be too sore for a while to perform with your gf.

Happy to hear that you dont need the apendix out, I knew a couple of guys who had theirs out a couple of years ago and both were really sick when it was happening. One of them was so bad that he missed at least 2 weeks of school (college) and was working for the rest of the semester to catch up. The other got his quick enough that he only was out of action for a day or two and then a weekend.
