How come pain the middle of the night is always more scary than during the daytime? I was woke up from a hydrocodone sleep, with pain in my very upper abdomen and middle back. It feels like I'm just pumped full of gas and tightness and pain. I took three of those GasX dissolving tongue strips, and that did NOTHING. I can't go to the bathroom, don't feel bloated or blocked in the intestine. It's such an incredible pain, I'm basically typing here waiting for the moment I need to wake my husband and ask to be driven to the hospital.
I'm not a hospital person. I once had an eptopic pregnancy that I didn't go for treatment until it was near bursting.
I've delivered 6 children, vaginally (sorry guys).
I can handle pain. This is ridiculous.
I've already made the mistake of googling it, and well, now I'm freaked out.
I took the med mentioned above because my lower back was hurting all day, then my stomach was bothering me, felt tight and nervous like my dinner wasn't being digested. That was 4 hours ago. Wow.
Any armchair diagnosis?
