I feel like I am falling apart over here…
When we got back from Mazatlan, Mexico last month, I started experiencing unusual throbbing pains in the ovary area on the 17th. I didn’t really think anything of it until it continued all throughout the day for the next couple of days, followed by light spotting for 4 days, sharp pain throughout the breasts, fiery nipples and extreme fatigue, so I started searching over symptoms online. Everything was leaning towards pregnancy. So a friend of mine brought over some dollar store tests and I took one of those which said not pregnant. I figured maybe it was too early to tell since it had only been a week. I then waited until the day my period was supposed to come and took a test then and it was negative. About 20 minutes later, AF arrived, so all of these weird symptoms I was experiencing left me completely dumbfounded.
I decided I should get a doctors appointment made because these occurrences are not normal for me. Although it’s been over a month since I’ve experienced that pain and those symptoms, I still get it, just not as bad or as frequently. My next doctor appointment is this Wednesday, and I’m getting a complete pap smear and some tests ran. I am hoping it’s nothing major, but I can’t help but think of the worst. As I type this, it’s pulsating in my right ovary, so I hope it’s just a benign cyst or something and not uterine/ovarian cancer. My grandma had it in her 20s, so that’s always a thought that crosses my mind.
And my sciatic nerve is giving me issues again. Not as bad as the first time, but enough that I had to be couch bound for a full day. I got an oxy from my step-dad which helped his back problem, but it did not resolve my pain and left me feeling extremely nauseous. Never again will I take that crap! I would rather deal with the pain than feel like I am going to vomit all day long. The only thing that helped alleviate my sciatic nerve pain in my lower back is a heat pack and stretching. It hurts to stretch but it helps, trust me! I feel like its worse when I’m sitting in the upright position, and it goes all the way down my leg into my feet. My foot feels like its on fire right now. If I have my leg bent at all, I get that sensation.
and to top it off, I have a swollen, impacted wisdom tooth. Thankfully, I have a dentist appointment tomorrow morning to get that looked at and hopefully will be getting it out in the next couple of weeks so I don’t have to deal with it anymore.
So as my original question says, can getting older get any worse?
Not looking forward to it, that’s for sure!
