but either way, where those black spots are is EXACTLY where i'm hurting. especially the dorsal view. sometimes the pain gets so intense that it hurts all the way down to my toes. and up to my shoulder. but, fortunately, most of the time it is gone. today was much better. yesterday was much worse. that makes me think it is muscle.
but, it still hurts and i the same spot. it is throbbing right now. makes me want to vomit it hurts so bad. (probably why i can't sleep.)
so today (since technically it is wednesday), i'd like my back to stop hurting. its what i want. i said yesterday if it didn't stop that i'd call the doctor for tomorrow. maybe if it doesn't stop tomorrow i'll call the doctor for thursday. but definitely before the weekend. we can't afford ER fees!!! (i don't know why i dread the doctor so much.)
incidentally, i haven't any fever, and i haven't any urges to pee more than usual. everything i read said that kidney infections would also have fever and/or frequent urination (and/or the urge to do so). it really reminds me of when i was pregnant and "gas" would get caught in my intestines... that causes some severe pain from time to time... but, i'm not pregnant!!! and, i'm positive this isn't gas!
