My Misunderstood Pain
One day, I had an ache on the right side of the abdomen. It was like a prickling. At that time, I walked like a lame since my muscle was pulled. When I tried to lift up my right leg, I couldn't lift it up. Besides, since I have chronic appendicitis, I thought the reason for the ache was my chronic appendicitis problem. From that morning, I was in pain and my pain continued until that night. I was very scared and I called my friend to ask for her help. She also was surprised and called a taxi to go to the emergency room for the hospital. I spent around three hours in that hospital, and I had a blood test. After my blood test, I found that the reason for the pain was a muscle problem. Since I just had found out that a swimming pool had been near to my apartment, I had gone swimming three times during that weekday. It was my first time to go swimming in the U.S.A. If that pain had been real appendicitis, I would have had to have surgery and my parents would be worried about my appendicitis, so after I realized that that pain was a muscle problem I felt very comfortable, and my friend and I laughed.
