Anybody got a Ricola?......






I've been very low key Web wise this past week.
Last Sunday during a sneezing spasm I felt a POP!
It felt like I ripped a muscle or cracked a rib on
my left side. After suffering excrutiating pain whenever
I coughed or even breathed hard, I finally dragged my
sorry ass to Urgent Care on Wednesday. They took 2 X-Rays
and said there was no breaks, but I just had to 'tough it out'.
He gave me a script for these horse pills called Nepranal, and
sent me on my way. I'm somewhat better, but I feel a
constant ache. Please bear with me for a few days...
I'll be back soon.

Old age is not for sissies, my friend. My commiserations. (My spouse is currently laid up with bursitis or gout or some other painful old people thing.) We know how you feel. Rest and avoid any exertion, like blinking your eyes too hard.

I agree with hedgewitch. Getting old is NOT for sissies.

Hope you have a speedy recovery but, really, if you have sore ribs, is putting up jokes a good strategy?

That McHumor cartoon would be funny if I hadn't been told something very similar a few years ago.
Take care of yourself and I hope you're feeling a lot better soon.

Oh so sorry to hear this G-man. Hope you're feeling better soon. It's a sad fact that as one gets older it doesn't take much to lay us up. :(

ugh Ive been there and done that! gave me same pills too! It sure sucks getting old...seems like the older we get the more something falls apart. Hubby will be 61 this year and has always prided himself for how good he feels(rarely ever gets sick) and all of a sudden he feels the pain in his knees and back and keeps asking me what the hell is going on?! I just laugh and say welcome to the club! So you rest we know your here when your ready to get back to us! HUGS feel better soon

Poor you! The x-rays... out of curiosity, what were they? Rib and or chest? And you can have a broken rib and it not show... treatment would be activity as tolerated (not much you do for a broken rib) But a chest x-ray would be looking for a collapsed lung. And the pain... it was truly the rib area or closer to the groin?

ps. Also, I bu profen is a LOT cheaper and does the same thing.

They could have given you a small amount of narcotics to help you sleep at night... NOT enough for addiction, just a bit to help you sleep pain free for a night or two...

NO, I'm not a Dr. or nurse, but someone I am well acquainted with is an Emergency Physician (and a damn good one :)
