I was in bed all day

When I went to bed last night, I was beginning to have an issue with my OAB (overactive bladder). But, I didn't think much of it because it is not usually a discomfort so much as an annoyance and inconvenience having to get up every hour to hour and a half to go to the bathroom and, frequently, having my body decide even walking 15' is too long to wait. I went through all of my remaining clean clothes over night. But, one of those awakenings was a painful one. I got a sharp stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen, below my ovary, that simply didn't go away. Hours later, some gas found its way out, but the pain, though a bit diminished, didn't go away. First of all, I was so cold when I went to bed. I just couldn't get warm at all. I finally threw a second blanket over me and that worked. But, by the time I woke the third time last night, I was so hot, I was throwing the covers off of me. My body wasn't hot, but it felt like the room was. Very similar to when I was going through menopause, but without me feeling like I had a fever. So, the annoyance of potty urgency combined with the pain that hurt to move and walk and then feeling so hot and a crushing headache to go with it all, just left me unable to go back to sleep after 5AM. I managed to take the trash out and fed all three animals. I went back to bed around 10:15 this morning and the cats joined me. I stayed there except for those undesired potty breaks until just a bit ago. The pain was finally gone. I was no longer having to change clothes after going to the bathroom. I was no longer hot or cold. But, the headache lingers. I don't know what was going on, but it took all day to feel halfway "right" again. I'll be so glad when I can get back to my doctor. I'm sick and tired of being sick.and.tired.

Not sure what it is. Feel better today, but the pain is still there. Thinking maybe obstruction or compaction. I've not had an issue like that since after my son was born. We shall see. I fixed that. If that's what it is, I can fix it.

Well take it easy and I hope you will feel much better soon. Hope that headache goes away quickly.

Hope you are now better and quickly recovering from everything. It is not really cool to have discomfort. God bless.
