It has been a while since I've even logged on here. Everything has been going so great, it seems like my HA is certainly much less severe than it was before. Of course every now and then I have my moments; concern about my heart rate, or silly worries that I use to have on a regular basis. But I avoided the internet, and worked through it on my own. But currently I am dealing with something I'm not sure how to handle.
Yes, I did google. Which was supposed to make me feel better but it made me feel worse.
It is that lovely time of the month we females deal with, and I was walking around with my friends a lot Saturday. I was wearing a pad, not a tampon, and I wasn't exactly given the opportunity to change it for several hours. Mid walk, I started feeling the wings of the pad sort of scraping uncomfortably against my leg. I tried to adjust it as best I could and keep walking. So when I finally got to a restroom, I got to change and I noticed what almost looked like a skin tag along my bikini line. It's right where my panties stop along the thigh, and it hurts when it's rubbed against.
My concern of course is some sort of serious cyst on my inner thigh. It's smaller than a pea, and it doesn't seem to have a head which makes me think it's not a boil.. There had been no pain and no noticeable bump until that night, so I'm trying to convince myself that the chafing is the cause.
One of my friends had MRSA a few months back, and I'm freaked out. I'm trying to remain calm and rational about the situation but it just seems so strange to me. It is now two days after noticing this, and it hasn't gone away. I don't know if anyone will have a similar experience, or even understand what I'm talking about.. I'm just a little on edge.
