So I've had this pain in my abdomen for the last 9 days. Couldn't really attribute it to anything so after 5 days I decided to see the doctor. Thankfully I work at a clinic so I have a doctor on hand when I need her! Last Friday she examined me and felt that I probably strained my abdominal wall from my core exercises. Well after taking a bunch of ibuprofen over the weekend, no change. Still in a lot of pain. So the doctor decided to order labs and an Ultrasound on all my organs in the abdominal area. Everything came back normal on the Ultrasound, only thing was my C reactive Protein came back slightly elevated indicating inflammation somewhere in my body. So, off to a CT scan I went. Well, I got the results this afternoon before I left work and I am so embarrassed. Apparently, I have fecal loading...aka I'm constipated. Now, this didn't make any sense to me since I was still going daily, but apparently it happens. I of course, immediately become self conscious of my terrible eating habits of late and feel about the size of a house. I can't believe that my poor choices led to all this. The only reason I'm posting this is to accept what I have done to my body and make myself accountable for my poor choices. Here's to 2011.
