Pants-al - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

11:21 pm - Pants-al

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Sooo, on Wednesday I fly up to Pittsburgh for Anthrocon.

I'm looking forward to it, except for one problem: I'm experiencing some kind of chronic discomfort in the... pants-al region. I must see a doctor on Monday and hope he/she can help, because this is really getting me down and I don't want it ruining the con for me. It doesn't hurt a lot or anything, but I constantly feel like I have to pee, EVEN WHEN I DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO.

I wish it weren't the weekend. I wish I didn't have to wait till Monday and hope I can get an appointment for either Monday or Tuesday, the only two days I'll be able to see a doctor before I leave. Is it a kidneystone? Is it an infection? I don't know and I wish I knew and I wish I could DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BY MYSELF RIGHT NOW.

See a doctor ASAP. If it continues this long it's either going to be a minor infection like UTI or bladder infection... or it could be something wrong with prostate.

Your doctor should have an emergency contact number for evenings and weekends. If this gets really bad, call. Even if it only gets MODERATELY bad, call.

And yeah -- that "I have to pee even when I don't have to pee" could possibly be prostate.

Here's hoping that the end result of all of this will be nothing worse than a comic where KT has issues with his "I Pee Address".

Tylenol is keeping it under control, so I guess it's not too bad.

See a doctor then.

If Tylenol makes it go away it means that the Tylenol is blocking the sensation by blocking nerve/pain receptors - if your bladder was full normally Tylenol would NOT block that, I don't think.

Right now the last dose of Tylenol has worn off a few hours ago, and the burning sensation (that's what it is, actually) has not returned. I'm still calling the doctor first thing on Monday, though. The sensation has subsided and returned at least once before.

I'll echo everyone else - see a doctor before the trip.

If you have problems during the trip, Mercy Hospital isn't too far away - it's on the south side of downtown Pittsburgh near Duquesne University.

Uch. I know that feeling, but for me it's unlikely to last more than an hour.
