The last few days my lower back has been hurting. I was thinking of what to call the pain and decided that "flank pain" was a good name. So I googled it just to see what the vast wisdom of the internets said.

Kidney Stones.
Urinary Tract Infection.

Being as my father and brother both have a history of the first I decided to go to the doctor today. The X-Ray and the Ultrasound were both clear. So the Urologist had me see a regular doctor who said it was probably just a strained muscle (most likely from the crazy bus drivers I think) and he gave me a muscle relaxer and some advice. So I should be ok.

However, rather funny thing happened while I was waiting for my X-Ray. They called out the name of the next people:

"Mister Li" 林先生
"Mister Chen" 陳先生
"Mister Huang"黃先生

And then...

"Foreigner". 外國人

Yes. Literally that is what was said. I had to laugh and smile.

Very funny. Just in case people hadn't noticed you weren't Chinese. The valium I mentioned yesterday is being used as a muscle relaxer as well. In my case it's my jaw. The dentist thinks I'm clenching my teeth more than usual--not that I'm under any stress, mind you. He gave me steroids to reduce the swelling and valium to relax the muscles and help me sleep. It worked great yesterday but not so great last night. Hope you feel better soon.

My buddy joined a gym here. The person setting up his account could get hsi first name (Ryan) but was having trouble with the last. Eventually, she got so fed up, she just wrote the first word she could think of. So now his name at the gym is Ryan Fat.
