An irritating development of my cold is that there is now a bit of my body that hurts when I breath. It's on the left hand side, just about where the ribs stop, kind of in the middle. According to pictures of the body, I think it's somewhere around where the spleen is. I'm sure Emp will be glad ;). It's a sort of dull pain which occurs when I breath in. I phoned NHSDirect, hoping for either a "You're dying, go to hospital", or a "Stop being a hypocondriac" response. Instead, I got a "Hmm. You might want to see a GP, they're open at this hospital". Now, lacking a car, and not wishing to cycle X miles with my cold, I'd have to taxi it. And I'm not entirely sure if it's worth going, given that the GP will probably say "It'll go away - let me know if it get's worse", and because I could wait and see my own GP on Monday instead. But given they've gone to the notional effort of organising it, it feels rude not to turn up. I don't know.
