So Now What

Yeah, test results.

Left Kidney- normal.  Small cyst on right kidney but let’s not worry about that (his words).

Lungs- yeah, inflamed but more than likely all due to asthma.

So- in other words- no kidney infection and no valley fever.

Yay?

Except it still hurts (not all the time) and the doctor has no answers.  Other than to ask if I was sure the pain was internal and not muscular in nature.  Grrr.  I think I would know the difference!  I realize I tend to ignore pain a lot and have a pretty good pain tolerance but this is not muscular.

Besides running doesn’t make it worse, running is actually one of the few things that doesn’t hurt.  However the pain usually comes after eating or drinking or sitting.    Sitting in my comfy chair?  Not so comfy.   Go figure.

So, instead I get to go back to my gastroenterologist because my primary doc thinks it might be time for another colonoscopy.  Oh yay.   Ok, the first one wasn’t that bad but still.  Grrr.

And until then, I’ll keep running because it doesn’t hurt (and I have the all clear). But on the off chance my doc had a good idea and I have no idea what pain is, I ordered a couple new packs to test for my longish runs.  My current one hasn’t really been working for me and I contort myself into weird stretches to get to my water.    New running gear is always fun, right?  I would like to buy a new chair but that’s not really in the finances at the moment.  😛  No, that’s going to be a washing machine.

Who else misses being a kid sometimes?

Any tips for side pain that may or may not be a thing? Haha.  🤣
