Hubby took me to urgent care because there is no such thing as a quick trip to the ER. I figured they could give me some meds to help me function and then I could get with my doctor during the week. Unfortunately, urgent care sent me to the ER saying they can't treat acute abdominal pain.
After taking all day to verify there wasn't another explanation for my pain, they felt confident it was my endometriosis and sent me home with pain pills to help me through a couple days until I could talk with my doctor.
I sort of figured my doctor would have 1 or 2 appointment slots available every day for urgent matters that need attention right away and that I would be able to see her today or tomorrow. Unfortunately, that's not how it works. I could have gotten in to see some other random doctor today, someone I've never seen before and isn't familiar with my complicated medical history - Or I could wait until Friday to see my doctor, which is what I'm going to do.
I need a plan in place before my next period because I don't want to have to go through this again and we need a long term plan so I don't have to deal with this every month. This, on top of everything else! I'm just not up for another big challenge, more disabling pain. I have enough to deal with between my chronic migraines and fibromyalgia. I'm feeling quite overwhelmed.
