My brother is a doctor and he calls this morning on his way to work to have a chat. I make small talk for a few minutes and then we have the following exchange:
Me: "Yeah, so I'm having this strange back pain."
I can just hear him rolling his eyes
Brother: "Uh huh..."
Me:"No really, it's in my lower back, it burns and it's weird and well...I think it's my kidneys."
My brother laughs out loud and puts on his best Arnold Schwartzeneggar accent: "Is it a tuuu-mah?"
Me: "Be serious! I could be having kidney failure!"
Brother: "You are not having kidney failure."
Me: "How do you know?"
Brother: "Tell me where you are having the pain."
So I tell him.
Brother: "Yeah, your kidneys are no where near there. You probably just pulled a muscle. Been lifting anything heavy, sleep funny?"
Jeez. What's the point in having a doctor in the family if he won't take me seriously? Pulled muscle - ha! It's my kidneys...I can feel it. Maybe mine are positioned lower in the body than other people. It's possible.
