I'm sick. Really sick. Kidney infection. Terrible back pain since Sunday night. Fever since Tuesday morning. I went to urgent care on Tuesday. They just waved me through the line and told me nothing was wrong but a rib that popped out of place. But that doesn't explain the lower back pain and fever!

I went to a different doctor today and I'm all infected. But they gave me Darvocet, so know I'm just waiting for the pain-free buzz to hit.

kidney infections are nothing to treat lightly. If you feel a UTI coming on, get it treated right away. I know co-pays suck, but the $10 copay to minute clinic beats the hell out of permanently damaged kidneys. Get well soon chica!

oh noes! :( i'm glad you got a 2nd opinion! urgent cares suck. all they gave me for my 'upper respiratory infection' aka WALKING PNEUMONIA was robitussin w/ codeine. there's a new wave of unwillingness to rx antibiotics these days unless desperately necessary due to immunity and all that, but damn. i'll get some from work and have my doctors diagnose me there, prolly end up for the better. ;)

ps - i know. i'm not a cat. *pout*

drink lots of water to flush it out and feel better soon - let me know if there's anything i can do! xoxo

Oh no! I hope the pain killers worked and that the infection passes soon and that you are feeling better.
