Suddenly sick

I started feeling a bit oogy on Saturday, feeling like I was going to have diarrhea but then ending up constipated, maybe getting just some liquid out.

After finally several trips, I started feeling a little better, but then I couldn't sleep and started feeling really, really, really bad. Nauseated, felt like I was going to faint, and still like I had diarrhea. As I sat on the toilet, I vomited three times suddenly all over the floor, and convulsed a fourth.

I felt decent after that -- enough to start cleaning up -- but now a few hours later it's starting to happen again. I'm feeling feverish, like I need to vomit and have diarrhea at the same time.

I didn't eat anything out of my ordinary menu, but while at the race track on Friday night, I held my urine until I absolutely couldn't anymore. I fear I may have overfilled my bladder and did a number on my kidneys. These symptoms are in line with kidney failure.

I tend to worry too much when I do feel ill, but I feel really ill. I don't even have a doctor, let alone medical insurance...
