      *UPDATE*

      Well, the pain in the side of my back/abdomen area never went away so I finally went to see a Urologist today. It's a kidney stone. I can't believe I've had a freaking kidney stone for 5+ weeks. (Stupid CareNow docs )

      I need to go in to get an X-ray scan done but the doc said my symptoms are classic for a kidney stone - straight out of the textbook. I'm actually relieved because I was beginning to worry that the symptoms were lingering for so long. She gave me this urine strainer thing that I have to pee in every time and try and catch some gold... I mean, a stone It does look like I'm pining for gold though - LOL I'm also on Flomax to help the stone pass and pain meds almost round the clock. She said it should pass within the next week or so!!!

      I go back to see her for a follow up next Monday. Pleeeeease think happy "flow" thoughts for me until then - hahahahahaha!

        Thanks for changing the title Christine!

        Yes, I am very happy to have answers! I was really starting to worry that something more complicated was going on because I've had bladder issues since I was 2. Phew!

          omg...I would be SO irrtitated at those other Dr's!! I mean, if your case is "textbook" then why didn't they think of that?! Oh well....

          I'm glad that you've finally got the proper meds and should start feeling better soon!!! :-)

            If you don't have insurance, try negotiating your hospital. doctors bills. It usually works. I learned this in a health policy class. It was also in money magazine. Insurance agencies are going to negotiate the bill down to about 25% of what it was, so they are willing to work with individuals too.

              Holy crap Jaime! I'm glad you got an answer, but wow! I can't believe the doc in the box guys didn't figure that one out.

              My BFF's hubby just had a huge kidney stone situation. He had to have an electromagnetic pulse therapy thing done to break one of them up. Sounds very painful.

                    Definitely tried that. The doc will only give a cash discount (35%) if the doc appt. is $300+. Good news is they referred me to a place to have the scan done that costs 1/10th the price that hospitals charge (like down from $1k to >$100!!!) This doctor is really nice - she knows my situation (no insurance) so she's really trying to help me cut costs.

                    lol @ "doc in the box"

                    YIKES! I've heard so many horror stories of kidney stones... so far mine hasn't been nearly as bad as the things I've heard. The doc said the worst is over but I thought the worst was when you pass it...
