Many thanks to those who commented on [livejournal.com profile] knirirr's journal.
For those not on his flist, last night I threw up so much blood that the bathroom looked like a set from Shaun of the Dead*. I was made to go to hospital; I was kept in overnight; no idea what happened, got given some omeprazole and sent home with a referral to have an endoscopy. Hopefully it won't be a repeat of last endoscopy for which I was scheduled, where I was essentially ranted at about what do GPs know and why do they keep sending people for endoscopies, and shunted out the door told I had acid reflux, go and take a gaviscon.
I am very tired, and feel like a pincushion, because it took all sorts of shunting to get any blood out of me, as per usual.
I am going to sleep for a bit now.

*for those who care about such things (and it was preoccupying me at the time, funny how the brain works), the socks I was wearing were in fact blood red, so the staining on the sole isn't going to show. Score.

OMG! Glad you seem to be okay now. There's no way that they'll be like that again if you were vomiting blood. *hugs* and take care of yourself.

You'd've thought, but I lost count of the number of times I was asked if I was sure I hadn't eaten rhubarb, beetroot &c last night. Sheesh.

Oh God I hope you're ok! Maybe I should be stalking knirirr's journal if you're going to be that poorly!

I know it sounds mad, but I do hope they actually find something like an ulcer or whatnot. I am rather sick *mirthless laugh* of being variously ill with no "proper' cause, iyswim.

Blood in all the wrong places, eh :(

Gentle hugs as desired, and I hope things get sorted out, and I *really* hope the doctors are less Unhelpful this time.

Oooh yes.
I don't even think they managed to bother checking me for H. Pylori last time. I am a less meek Bee than I was then, though, and I may go all Difficult Patient on their ass.

Heh, the doctor doing the rounds this morning seemed *extremely keen* to get pretty much everyone on the Medical Assessment Unit "home for Easter". Couldn't tell whether that was because it would be good for us or for him ;-)

Don't know if this may help you feel a bit better. If you don't want to be spoiled, it is info on who the Doctor's companion will be in the last episodes with David Tennant.

I also discovered that it is possible to knit in such a way as the cannula in your left hand doesn't hurt too much. I know, I am so sad...

Scary :(

Hope you're OK, good news on the socks (I've managed to wind myself up something chronic about such things when I should be calling an ambulance)...
