It was a gallbladder attack, I'm almost 100% sure now. My symptoms fit it all pretty well. The fact that I thought I was better yesterday, and then got taken down by the meanest, nastiest stomach ache (that crawled up into my right chest area) after simply eating a turkey sandwich for lunch was my biggest clue. But then I read about how a symptom of an attack is a headache, focused on the right side of the face? I had that, too!
Anyway, I don't think I had the flu, after all. And so far today [looks around stealthily for hidden evil waiting to attack] I'm doing all right. I went to my acupuncture appointment last night, and my doctor said that my esophogus, gallbladder, and lower intestine were all in a bad place, and he attended to them with his needles. He also gave me some physical therapy-type "homework" that I can do, and which I have been doing. And I felt tremendously better within an hour of the appointment ending.
Such amazing stuff!
So. Today, I will be leaving work early, and heading to the salon for a little mani/pedi action, and a blow out so I can be as pretty as possible for my in-laws that all arrive later today. And I'll eat sushi for lunch, and be careful about what I eat for dinner, and hopefully, my stomach will be full recovered by tomorrow.
I want mashed potatoes, dammit!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I'm personally thankful that the evil, horrid putridness in my stomach seems to have abated for the time being, but I really hope you all are thankful for way better stuff than that this week! :D
