A). Most health issues I have involve common colds and viruses, so the trip is almost always a waste
B). Seeing a doctor, even with insurance, always seems to be expensive.
So I have a doctor's appointment for Thursday, since I've got two things bothering me right now. One is potentially more serious than the other, but both are bothering the shit out of me right now.
First: I have either spider bites or cysts or horrible bacne on my right shoulder blade. I have no idea what they are. All I know is that they hurt a bit if I raise my arms up (and thereby compress the skin a bit). It's been 3 days, and they are showing signs of growing together (there's 4 of them in a constellation) rather than going away. Need to get that checked out.
Second: Two weeks ago I noticed a "chafing" sensation in my right armpit, and thought maybe my dry-cleaned dress shirts just had some extra starch in them I wasn't used to or something. However, the sensation continued, even when I woke up in the morning and hadn't had a shirt on for 8 hours. Now, it feels like I have something constantly held in my arpit, like, fold up a cloth and hold it in your armpit by holding your arm against your side. Kinda like that. It's definitely under the skin, and I can't find it. So, something awry in my arpit and me approaching 40 (in two years!) = no fucking around and go straight to the doctor and get this checked out. Maybe it's just a pulled muscle? I hope?
I'm hoping that these two things can be fixed with coritzone and more cortizone (bug bite and inflamed glands or something). I'll also accept but not enjoy antibiotics. I'm just reeeeallly hoping that neither requires surgery.
