    Do not endure bad pain Jacqueline , get help now . Only you know how you feel, go to your doctors now. Your doctor should put your mind at ease in terms of whether this is an emergency or not . Take care

      I ma taking Paracetamol every 6 hrs, not really noticing much  pain reduction. Don't know whether or not to take Mebeverine to reduce the 

      bloating ,I look like a Sumo wrestler in a frock

    Don't try to "soldier on" go to doctor today and get treatment.  I've been to docs today and back on antibiotics again.

    If the pain is too bad to bear Jacqueline , I would advise to either go to your nearest walk in centre or A and E. The very least they will do is to take blood tests which may show raised infllammation, and give you stronger painkillers, but most of all you will be given the professional advice which you need right now

      Sat morning feeling much better after all the effort to get help Out of hours clinic called me in .dressed, taxi ride ,wait ,prod around said it was a little tender,stopped the penicillin which the 111 doc had prescribed even though I told him I was allergic to the stuff  taxi home 10-30 pm by this time.took from 3-30 to get sorted.  

      Lainie and I have started a flare together , using the same drug

      feeling awful, and keeping each other up to date with each others

      regard D.D with a little more sympathy and effort

    I don't believe  it !!!! O.K at the risk of repeating myself, I have tried to tell you , that

    I rang 111 put through almost immediately to the doctor whose voice I recognised

    from 3 months ago ,fortunately he remembered me and my dodgy D.D

    So he faxed a prescription through to my pharmacy ,5 mins away. Bit of a problem with the fax machine  Sorted  , I ha my first dose of antibiotics at 4pm

    Keflex and Metronidazole. Fingers crossed,  was going on holiday on Monday 

    History surely repeats itself , I was going on holiday the last time it happened.

     So, Thank you everybody for giving me a shove  xx

    Sorry I must have got wrong end of stick or perhaps read too quickly. What a stroke of luck the doctor recognised you and got prescription sorted out quickly for you to start the antibiotics.  I hope you can still make your holiday x
