lambkins, Judy is right, don't delay in seeing your Doc. I had some weird allergy affecting one eye and the Dr. was at first very worried that I might have that condition from my UC.
I know it can feel sometimes like what else can go wrong and I sometimes will put stuff off, but lately I make sure to contact the Doc's and let them help decide the next course of action. One thing that really brought that point home for me, was I mentioned a small pain near my kidneys to my Neph and he had me in the hospital for testing that same day in case I had a clot, which I did not, but if I did it would have saved my life by speaking up and for him taking action.
let us know how it goes!
