Dear People of Med Help who want to to read my story,
Today I woke up, the third day in a row, to a sharp horrible pain underneath the bottom of my right rib cage. Two days ago I had ventured to the doctor to find out what was up. She looked puzzled and said that it didn't add up and that she wanted a urine sample. I got up and followed her and as I went my bad knees popped out of place with each step, darn tendinitis, and other knee problem that I forget the name of. All I know is that my flat feet and Shin splints started the prob with my knees. Anyways, I proceeded to pee in the cup, hand it off to the nurse and let her handle the chemical checking, Oh how I can't wait to be a pediatrician, you can tell so much from "waste", and I'm not sarcastic here. The doctor called my dad in from the waiting room, (I'm 15 people, I can't drive =] ) and told him that my pain was where my liver was (she did poke and prod and listen and such as well before hand) and that I had a high protein count. I was also told that other things didn't add up. So I was sent to get blood drawn. I looked away and held my breath as the needle entered. When I got back from skool the next day, I was told that I needed to head back asap. The blood was normal, but my protein count was naturally high. So today I ventured to the doctors again, We played the same game except today I got my throat deep rubbed for a strep test, fun, Same high protein count in my urine and no step. Ok Cralaya, this is serious. I knew this from my doctors description of Hepatitis and other diseases it may be. She gave me two cups to pee in at home to make sure its not the exercise making the protein count high, and is sending me for an abdominal and kidney ultrasound. Now I am home with chest pain, long story short? Check out my question (My only one, just look, I am like 30 minutes old on this site) and horrible LIVER?? pain. My knees stink and my allergies are killing me. Today stunk and tmmrw I miss finals to take a visit to the hospital.
