Should I go to the doctor? ( MAJOR TMI) NannyofFourKids Japan 15 posts
8th Jan '13

So, I know you guys aren't doctors but I am just debating whether to go to the doctor today or not. If I don't have to I reallly don't want to.



So what happened was two days ago (1/6) I ate some Olive Garden then about 2-4 hours later drank 3 full bottles of water but I was super busy with schoolwork that I held it for a couple hours until my bladder start to hurt (4/10 on the pain scale) so then I got up and peed but then the pain continuted (6/10) and increased until about 30 minutes later I got nausea and started dry-heaving. I called my mom and asked her what I should do (yes, I still run to my mom haha) she told me to try and lay down and relax so I tried but the pain was to intense. Then I felt like I had to go to the bathroom (Number 2) so I got up and walked to the bathroom but I guess once I got their I passed out and when I woke up (probably only 10-20 seconds later) I shit all over myself and throw up. I continuted to throw up for another 15 minutes until I got up and cleaned myself off and took a bath. The stomach pain increased (9/10 and it was around my upper cheast area/middle stomach) and I called my mom to come over and help me and she did. I laid in bed and fell asleep, when I woke up the next day the pain was no where close to as bad as it was that night but still pretty bad (6/10) I slept bassically all day (called in sick to work) and my stomach was almost prefectly fine unless I got up or moved. The pain was in my lower right stomach/side. Now today I feel great. The stomach pain is only about a 3/10 when I move and I feel no pain when I am sitting or laying down. No nausea. No stomach upset. I'm debating whether I should go to the doctor or just call in a freak sickness?



Symptom List:
~Nausea (First day only)
~ Diarrhea and uncontrollable bowels (First day only)
~Passed out (First day only)
~ Severe Stomach pain in upper-middle stomch/chest area (First day only)
~Moderate stomach pain in lower right stomach (Second day)
~Low/Mild stomach pain in lower right stomach (Today)



Thank you so much for taking the time to read this

I would have went to the ER on the first day.
That sounds scary, you should definitely be seen asap.

Eh I wouldnt. Everyone at my house had a horrible stomach bug last week that sounds just like that. But I would think it was probably food poisoning.

If you are feeling better, can keep food down and not having the runs...then you shouldn't waste the ER's time, kwim?

Oh no, I wouldn't go to the ER (I only go to the ER unless I'm like dying haha) I would have went to my family-doctor. But I called and made an appointment for tommororw since I just had another stomach upset.
