Ok what the f*** is happening

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Dear Dr. Styleforvm, I am posting this more on a whim because I am not about to go to a doc tonight, but this is pretty weird. Over the course of maybe the last 2 or so days (I noticed this this morning), I seem to have acquired some sort of weird swelling. It is directly below my ribcage, directly above my gut, pretty much over the solar plexus. Where before you could pretty much see my ribcage, there is now like... I don't even know what to call it, it's like someone put a football in there. Not quite that big, but it's twice the size of a fist, at least. It's slightly worse towards my left side than my right. It seems to have gotten bigger since this morning so I may have to go to a doctor tomorrow just to figure out what's going on. I am wondering if it is somehow connected to the bad sunburn I got this past weekend, which also got my left side worse than my right. This seems like a reasonable hypothesis. My ankles and lower calves also seem to be slightly swollen, too, like edema, but nowhere near as noticeably as above my gut. This makes me wonder if it's dietary. Query: is an alien about to burst out of me, leading to Sigourney Weaver busting into my room with a flamethrower? Because that is what it looks like. Regards, Me

^You think? I mean it doesn't seem to be doing anything other than looking freaky. Google's telling me that sunburns actually can cause edema. Fuck, I wonder where the closest hospital is.

seriously you should probably just go to the ER.

Sounds like you didn't get sunburned, you got sunstroke. Go to the ER just in case.

It's hard for me to take a guess given your limited information (like, does it hurt? bowel movements? nausea? general stomach trouble/pain? etc.) and the fact that I can't actually see what the "swelling" looks like (as in if it's swelling or actually a mass.) Your best bet is imaging tests and blood work at your local friendly ER. Good luck.

It hurts like a sunburn. That is to say, I got it on sat day, it hurt by sat night, it hurt like a motherfucker sunday, now it's just a bit tender. The swollen part doesn't hurt much at all, my shoulder was the part that got it worst. Nothing else seems abnormal. As for whether it's a mass, I don't really know, just feels like someone hid a mini keg in my chest while I was sleeping.

Anyway trying to get a cab. This is gonna be a bitch from a bureaucracy standpoint, I haven't been to a doc since I moved.
