Last night, I started feeling a bit of twinge in my upper abdomen, just to the right of center. It feels like a muscle ache, but I haven't done anything that would have stressed my upper abs.
I'm skipping a run at lunch because I have an Incredibly Important hearing tomorrow and I'm finishing up all my brilliant legal arguments. In reality, I'm skipping my run because of this achy thing. It hurts to bend forward, but not backwards. If it was pulled/strained muscle, I would think it'd hurt more when I bend backwards.
My legal assistant has chronic pancreatitis. Her eyes got really big when I told her about this pain. I haven't eaten anything out of the ordinary or anything to excess. I have one beer 2-3 times a week, and occasionally I have two. I don't drink cow's milk. I had a weird, sudden dizzy spell Saturday afternoon, but it passed.
I promised I'd monitor the pain. If it moves to my back, I will call the urgent care nurse. But now, I'm just going to make funny faces and feel sorry for myself. I still plan to ride my bike home, but I'll make sure I can throw my leg over the top tube before I change into my kit.
This Incredibly Important hearing really has to happen tomorrow. This guy's been in detention for almost six months awaiting a decision on one issue. The court has to decide this issue before we can try him. Absent me being in the emergency room, the court isn't likely to continue the hearing. (This isn't the type of thing I can hand off to another attorney the morning of the hearing.)
I'm hopeful it's nothing. I'm sure it's nothing. I'm still going to make funny faces and feel sorry for myself, though.
