As Salaamu Aalaykum!
so yesterday I was overwhelmed with CRAZY amounts of pain. At first I toughed it out like I usually do but then every time I would "control" the pain it would increase and increase. It got to the point that I could no longer handle the pain and it occurred to me, my mom had an ectopic pregnancy around this age so I freaked. It was 1 AM and I woke my husband so he could take me to the hospital. Alhamdulillah he got the children ready and off we went.
The hospital was PACKED and when I was admitted there was blood on the floor NEXT to my bed. EWW. Honestly though I didn't care because the pain was just too much. After hours of waiting and blood coming out of me I was seen by a doctor. AND I got the usual "we know SOMETHING is CLEARLY wrong with you, however, we can't figure it out at this time, your kidneys are awesome (me: mashaAllah), no ovarian cyst like we suspected, no kidney stone like we suspected". Its 2003 all over again.
I was hospitalized every semester in college for a couple of days at at time because I had stopped breathing and there was some kind of reoccurring kidney infection even though I pass all the tests they ran on me. I got a shot of some pain relief (IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME!) and finally some antibiotic. I was given a pelvic exam which was not pleasant, ultrasounds to determine if it was an ectopic pregnancy, both my kidneys and uterus were also scanned. nothing.
They were thorough and I don't think they are incompetent but thus far no solution to my "illnesses" that strike every so often. It has been about 6 yrs since the last time I was holding my sides like I did yesterday. Today was also my launch date for my hijab store but I am going to continue working on it and inshaAllah I can launch it in the next couple of days.
In the meantime I am all drugged up...make du'a for my daughter that the drugs I am taking don't negatively affect her. AMEEN.
May Allah swt grant me complete shifaa from all that is ailing me. AMEEN.
