Just thinking I'd get input from anyone who had thoughts... I've been going along alright. Actually did two days in a row at Disneyland with my girl, visiting my mom/step-dad. Felt ok. Took pain meds preventatively and my parents respected that we not leave the house until almost 11am.
Got home, did two hikes - Thurs and Sat - 3-4 miles. After the hike yesterday I was super hungry. I'd just picked up my daughter from her dad's. We stopped at Taco Bell and I shared the tiny nachos with my girl and ate the meat out of a steak soft taco. about an hour later my gut was *very* sore. Tender to the touch, all over, but mostly near the ileum. I took two vicodin and it did absolutely *nothing!* Then I caved in to an advil (a couple hours later).
I am never, ever a napper, but I slept through my daughter watching a movie (loudly!) for 1.5 hours. I woke with a fever of 102. Today my temp is below 100 (99.7) but the pain is still there. I have not really eaten since, but did have a few bites of melted brie. No solids...
It almost feels like I pulled a muscle but it's so local to the ileum and that doesn't explain the fever. It stayed at 102 all last night for about 6 hours, despite the tylenol from the vicodin and the advil.
If it still hurts tomorrow, I will call my doc. But, I thought I'd see if anyone had any advice.
Thanks and hope you all had a great holiday!
