@adorable-eggplant Eggnog isn't hot? *is confused all over again.
@LydiaBennett In my case incredibly painful stabby pains along the side of my rib cage. It felt muscular to me, which was why I thought I'd done something to my rib cage. I couldn't sleep it was so bad, even taking all the painkillers (ibuprofen + paracetamol + codeine). Turned out it was a blood clot in my lungs. It must have started with a DVT in my legs after a 5 hour car journey (which I slept through, so didn't move). I remember my legs hurting, but I thought it was normal stiff legs after sitting for too long. 3 days after that, the chest pain started. After 9 days of pain, I started coughing up blood (small amounts, but bright red fresh blood) at which point I got my husband to take me to A&E (ER). A few hours later I was admitted with a suspected pulmonary embolism, confirmed that evening by CT scan.
So, I'm a little jumpy now when I have chest pain. (though I've had no recurrence.) Had to change BC though, from combined pill to progestogen-only (which doesn't have the clot risk).
Now I'm off the pill and trying to get pregnant, but that's another story.
@AmandaElsewhere I had a blood clot caused by BC and a long car journey. So scary! It caused incredibly horrible chest pain,and breathlessness and coughing up blood which was finally got me to go to hospital after 2 weeks of thinking I'd just strained a chest muscle. But yes, you will know. It hurts like hell.
@lemonadefish Yep, me too. Sucks.
@pajamaralls My niece used to love 'oyives' when she was about the Bergy bits' age. Just as delightful as yegs. Someone who understands language development - why do Ls so often come out as Ys when small people are learning to speak?
How about don't bug me?
@or Elsa! @or Elsa! Weird! In the best sort of things that seem normal to an insider and alien to an outsider sort of way.
@Onymous But she's married to an Englishman, tins is normal British English.
I am totally with her on the cheese shouldn't come out of a tin/can/jar thing. But mostly cos it's alien to me. I imagine the French feel similarly about British cheeses.
I'm confused. What sort of cheese comes in tins?
(I should probably point out I'm English, so assume that's a US thing I've just never encountered).
Edit: Ah! @Or Elsa says Cheez Whiz. Which is what, sprayable cheese? Or like whipped cream in a can? Still confused, must google.
