And yet again..

This time during the day, yesterday.  Okay until about 2pm, then chills...fever around 100F.  Legs completely gone.  After trying to go pee twice, and having to call the care attendents to get me back in my chair...twice...I decided to get in bed around 5pm.  And, of course, I had to call for help to do that.

Fell asleep.  Slept until about 10pm.  Tried to get out of bed to pee...couldn't...but luckily, I have a bottle.  Went back to sleep.  Woke again around 3am...got up just fine.  Peed.  Went back to sleep until 6am.  I got up, got in my chair, and I've been "normal" all day.

Whatever these episodes are (psuedo-exaccerbation?), they only last about 12 hours, then I'm good to go for another couple months.

I did pass a kidney stone Friday, about the size of the "C" in the cpnhelp logo at the top of the page.  (I'm lucky, I guess.  They never hurt.  Kidney feels a little uncomfortable, but that's about it).  Does that explain the fever?  Is it fever that sets off these episodes?

Kidney stones are often

Kidney stones are often accompanied by an upper urinary tract infection. Chills, high temperature and pain over the kidneys are typical. Urine and blood cultures are advisable.

Well, the obvious question is

Well, the obvious question is 'do you always pass a kidney stone on after these episodes?'.............................Sarah
