I'm scared

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I'm scared. My stomach has been in pain since last Friday afternoon. It actually kept me off my feet all weekend. I tried to go to the grocery store with Hubby on Sunday. Within 5min I wanted to go back home. I was shaking and sweating. Just overall weak. And hurting.

I've been at work all week. Monday was rough, but by the evening, I was starting to have some pain freedom.

Over the past two days, I still get some twinges.

Usually, I have one day, or one night that is painful. Then the next day the pain breaks and I have twinges for a few days at most.

Something is wrong. It's different this time. And I'm scared. My doctors are all back in Calgary. I'm working an hour away from the nearest hospital, and can't just go in for a quick check. I'd need to take a day off work. There are issues around that too.

Speaking of work, I just got an email from the HR representative. They have decided to ask me if it's okay to escallate my concerns regarding pay, and the fact I feel like I'm being ripped off hours wise out here. I told them it's okay to go ahead. The stess of it all has made me physically sick, and I just want it resolved.

I'm scared I just got myself fired too. But at this point, I'll walk away knowing I did what was right. They are short changing me, and I need to stand up and speak out. Period. I have discussed with Hubby that I may loose my job over this. He agrees with me. Stand up and do what's right. Make them do what's right.

Needless to say, I'm shaking like a leaf right now. And on the verge of throwing up.

    It could be an ulcer and you don't want to let that go - go see a doctor or go to a walk in clinic emoticon

    Go to the doctor - get checked out. Try to make arrangements to make up the hours at work, but at this point that may be a moot point anyway. If there is something wrong you'll be glad you went in sooner rather than later.

    I know right now it is hard to get time to go get checked out, but you really need to make the time for yourself and do so. I hope you feel better soon! emoticon

    See the Doctor and everything you do not only benefits you but also your co-workers and those that will follow all of you.

    Have you added something new to your diet? Last year my friend bought me some steel cut oats, barley and some other things for my birthday because I love oatmeal. Gradually, after a few days of eating it, I was in such agony. My stomach was swollen, it was painful. Sharp pains as well as massive stomach cramps. I felt so bloated and like I had no energy and couldn't eat anything!

    I tried many things, I thought it was lactose, I cut out a couple things but nothing. I stopped eating the oatmeal and within 2 days I was feeling way way better!

    It shocked my husband and friend that something natural would do that to me but I can't even have a small portion without my body reacting.

    Something to think about. I hope you figure it out soon!

    I hope you can see a doctor soon. Pain is a sign that there is something wrong, but you know that. emoticon

    First of all, pain is a symptom of a problem and when it persists or is debilitating definitely needs to be checked out. Second, I don't know about Canadian law, but my guess is you have employment rights like we do in the U.S. It sounds like you need to check those out. Without knowing your exact situation, I don't know what else to say but to offer my support. Please take care of yourself!
