There's something wrong with me [enough of that!] at the moment. It started with a strange stomach ache, like I'd swollowed a stone which had wedged under my rib cage, last Thursday afternoon. It continued Friday and Saturday, spreading now and again throughout my stomach and then into my upper back. I haven't been sleeping because I couldn't find a comfortable position.

Sunday morning Big Jay took me to the Emergency Room at the Sans. They did a blood test which showed nothing and have said it's probably oesophigitis or something similar but probably not a gall bladder thing. I'm going to have an ultrasound this afternoon which will hopefully cast some more light on the problem.

I have been taking an assortment of stomach pills and Panadol but nothing has helped. Until I remembered that I had some Digesic leftover from my last op. I had some last night which at least helped me sleep for a few hours. This morning I took Somac which is a once-a-day pill for my stomach and it has helped ease the stomach pain. Right now it is the pain around my shoulder blades which is bothering me the most. I don't know if this is related to the stomach thing or if it's just a result of not sleeping and laying around on the sofa a lot.

I don't know what this is but it isn't any fun at all. I'd have 10 hysterectomies for one of whatever the hell this is.

So sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather! Sure hope the docs can figure out what is up so they can provide you with some relief.
