>Yesterday (11/9/2015) I started having this sharp pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen, right under my rips, and it was really painful. Moving around made it worse, to the point where I was clutching my abdomen in pain and scrunching my face up. I was with my boyfriend at the time and he was insisting that I go to the ER but I said "no, no it's fine!" and so then he called his mother (a doctor) and got her advice, and she said to have me drink some hot water and take a pain-killer.
>So we microwaved water and drinking it helped, and I took some Ibuprofen and I was okay
>Until the Morning
>About an hour after I woke up today (11/10/2015) the pain came back, this time more intense! If I stood up straight I had to sit back down again really quickly because it really hurt, and movement made it super painful. I texted my boyfriend and let him know what as going on and he gave me some phone numbers to call for a nurse's advice and the nurse I talked to said to go to the ER
>but then I called my mother who told me to wait (she wondered if the feeling would pass, and she also needed to research where I could go that would take our insurance. Since I am in college now and my normal hospital isn't around here we didn't know where I should go) and I waited for her to call my back but it progressively got worse. My boyfriend came down to my room, ready to carry me to the ER, but I told him we had to wait until my mom called me and so he heated up some more water and drinking the hot water really helped.
>When my mom called back the pain had dwindled a bit but she told me where to go and I wrote down the address. But then I was freaking out and trying to decide if I should even go now that things were not hurting as much but my roommate (who barged in asking if I was okay) and my boyfriend were both saying "YOU NEED TO GO" but we did not have a ride to the ER so my roommate went onto a facebook group chat for our freshman class and asked if anyone had a car because I needed a ride to the emergency room, meanwhile my boyfriend found someone working as campus staff who called campus security to drive my boyfriend and I to the hospital
>I was panicking the whole car ride to the hospital, and then when my boyfriend and I walked into the ER place I just froze up at the counter and he had to start explaining for me what I was doing there. Then we waited and a nurse came to get us and whatnot and I put on a hospital gown and they did urine tests and blood tests and those were normal. I didn't have a fever. My blood pressure and heart rate were fine.
>I then got an ultrasound because they wondered if something was wrong with my gallbladder/kidney and, though I was in pain, that also came up negative. The doctor was stumped and he told us that 50% of the time that young women come to the ER with abdominal pain they can't diagnose it needless to say I was concerned and also feeling really guilty about probably wasting my boyfriend's time and the doctor's time on something that they could not even find the cause of.
>Just to be sure that it was not appendicitis they then did a CT Scan but on the image they could not even see my appendix. But because the area around it looked normal they said that it was fine and therefore I was discharged with a prescription for an antacid and instruction to only eat bland food (so nothing salty/sweet/sour/spicy/ect.)
>The pain has not been as intense any more, but I get it in small waves occasionally and I will be monitoring it from now on Hopefully it is nothing serious and hopefully the medication will help!
