Unexpected Doctor Visit

Today has been a good day. I got the best night's sleep last night. The night before I was tossing and turning and plagued with bad dreams, but last night was just great.

I did have an unplanned doctor visit. I'd been having some chest pain the last day or so. It keeps coming and going and showing up in different spots. I've had this pain before and the doctor said it wasn't a big deal and didn't do anything about it last time. It always went away before so I wasn't worried, but this time it stuck around for a while. So I called the doctor this morning and he had an opening (or created one for me, actually) this afternoon so I went in. He thinks I'm having some joint pain and inflammation where the ribs meet the sternum. All symptoms seem to point to that (more pain when laying down, more pain with pressure on the area, the area that hurts). He prescribed some Celebrex to take for a week and then I'll follow up with him in two weeks. Nothing to worry about!
