  • Pesticides or Allergens?

    Yesterday I was out doing some shopping and I ended up at Lowe's. I walked in on the garden center side so I could look at flowers and flower pots etc. I wasn't even 20 steps in the door when I had to sit down or fall down. The pain hit me like I had just been kicked all of a sudden. I still don't know if it was all of the pesticides so frequently in the air around plants or if it was just my allergies kicking in. I am still in pain, but not as excruciating. It was sort of weird too, I usally hurt mainly on the left side of my bladder but this pain was the front top side. (isn't is weird how you can suddenly feel the entirity of your bladder and know which side or whether it is the front or back that hurts?) Anyway, I guess I was just wondering if anyone else had ever experienced anything like this? Usually for me if it is allergies my sinuses flare up too and I start sneezing and getting runny nose or watery eyes. This incodent was purely bladder pain. I slowly made my way to the bathroom and just sat it out for a while. I feel like I have been in slow motion since. ARGH!!! I love spring because everything is so pretty, but it sure doesn't love me!

    Usually it's just my nasal passages that tell me I gotta get out of there!

    Stay safe
