back and lower abdominal pain leading to blackouts
I am a delivery driver for FedEx. I work approximately 14 hours per day. My route is very rural and does not take me near a place to use the restroom. Most days I am forced to hold it the entire day. I try to keep hydrated by drinking water and gatorade throughout each day as it is well over 95 each day. My back and lower abdominal NEVER stops hurting. It is excrutiating to the point of passing out for a few seconds (i think). I have to pull over on the side of the road for a minute. I have gotten to the point where I will stop on a dirt road and just find a tree but I am afraid damage has been done. I am 47, female, and this has been going on for about three months. Have I caused a problem for myself? I have no insurance.
