left abdominal pain



Awful day. Last few days of menses. My pain was very controlled, and BANG! At 2:30, I woke up with the EXCRUCIATING left side flank pain. Just like that. Gone one second, here the next. Now, my muscles are tightened up trying to control the pain with my heating pad and dilaudid. Awful. Trying to get through. Will update later if I can. I don't know if I will be able to.

POTS



Bad night/early morning. IV saline 1 bag Saturday, 1 bag Sunday.  BP taken last night was 100/70 (good), pulse was 60 and according to my husband almost inaudible. Dizziness and presyncope from Sunday night into this morning. Extreme pain started this morning. Dilaudid and heating pad used with some positive effects. Pain worse after bm. Still dealing with cold/allergy symptoms. Day 4 of menses. Hoping that the pain will not increase, but according to my track record, I can almost be certain that its coming. Hoping this tracker will help me understand patterns. Resting pulse is 80-85, standing pulse is 120-140.

bad day



Bp is 105-70, pulse is constant 60, unless I get up & jumps to ⬆100. Very lightheaded, seeing double, pain is minimal. Third day of period. Very heavy bleeding and clots. Back ache, limbs ache. No energy. Hr is very low for me and uncomfortable. Afraid of passing out when I stand up. Not the best day. Zofran does help with constant neasea.

Always hiccuping after taking bites of food...no more than 4 or 5 bites leads to hiccups. Subsequent nausea (severe) resting hr is not below 100. ⬆to 140 upon standing. Very tired today.
