    Abdominal pain

    Hey guys,

    I had to go to the ER yesterday because I was having horrible pain on my right side/back. It felt almost identical to the pain I had last time I had a kidney infection and that's what the doctors thought it was but they found nothing and sent me home with motrin and norco. I am still in some pain today, though not as severe, but I've noticed its a little lower today and beginning to spread to my left side. In addition I've been very nauseous, I've had diarrhea for a few days (I alternate between C and D so nothing new) I have a horrible headache and I'm very weak and tired. Does anyone have any ideas about what might be happening??

    Thanks,
    Amber

    Hey CalGal,
    It actually turned out that the hospital mixed up my urine samples and I do have a kidney infection, so its nice to know I'm not crazy!
