I don't actually do anything to pull my muscles... but then... I don't do anything to my joints, either... So... It probably is just my body being stupid... //^_^\\'... Hopefully.
The whole acids thing could be another possibility, too... At any rate, it certainly isn't helping my energy level. But what can I do? When you're broke, you're broke... :|... And when food stamps come in on the 15th, they come in on the 15th... No helping that.
I don't know about
going to the ER for this.... even though it is really painful. Last time I went to the ER because I had severe pain in my right hip that would shoot down to my knee... could hardly walk (limped mostly)... The doctors did take me seriously, at least... and I had some tests done... (I have a few slightly bulging discs, but the doctors acted like that was nothing, so.....). And my general doctor simply brushed off the pain as being anxiety or "all in my head"...
It just seems like such an embarrassment... Unless I have trouble breathing or I pass out (in which case, I have informed my roommates about
my Crohn's disease with instructions to please get me emergency care if such a thing should happen)... Or I have severe tummy pain... Then, I'm not going to the hospital.
And I dunno so much about
going to the general doctor, either. I guess if that pain does get to be a regular problem, I will schedule a doctor's appointment. But it just seems like such a waste of time (Say, I have an appointment at 9:00 AM... I wouldn't get out of there until 5:00 PM (Oh, err, also forgot to add in the medical transportation wait time)... That's time spent mostly in the waiting room. The doc usually only sees me for maybe 10-15 minutes tops)... Especially if I only get told it's anxiety... //@.@\\'...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
