Okay, so I already know I'm paranoid. Here's more proof:
Yesterday I got a headache that came on somewhere around 1pm and lasted till about 2-3pm today. Tylenol didn't help yesterday and today it helped a little. Like, when I started to think it was working, it would wear off. My swelling was worse on Saturday and Sunday morning then went away mid-day. Happened again this morning. I think my finger swelling is much affected by gravity. LOL
Anyway, I debated calling the OB about the headache since my BP's haven't been any worse and I'd get the normal reaction from them. Well, about 10 minutes ago I started feeling like my back seriously needed to be popped -it was sore. So I tried by twisting like usual and it didn't work. It is common for me to have a sore back, but usually in my lower back, not upper. Now the back pain is more of a chest pain...central and right near my zyphoid. It hasn't been going on for long and I'll feel like a total idiot if I call in and it goes away. I should also mention I have a high pain tolerance (example: my appendix ruptured on a Friday evening and I didn't go to the hospital till Sunday afternoon...and that is when I was 8) I don't get indigestion that causes pain. Gas sure, but it feels like gas pain and isn't near my chest.
Just took bp, 158/100...not my norm for today (124/80 and 128/84) so I don't know if this is from the pain or visa versa. Ugh. I guess I've just talked myself into calling.
