"I AM TIRED OF THESE SORRY A– SO CALLED 1st RESPONDERS WHO REALLY DON'T HV A PASSION 4 THEIR JOB OR PEOPLE! PLAYING THE U NEED ME POSITION! HAVING ATTITUDES & NOT DOING THE JOB YOU CHOSE AS A CAREER! I SWEAR THEY GOT ONE MORE TIME & IM SLAPPING THE S— OUT SOMEBODY."

After a follower urged her to contact a patient care advocate, T-Boz wrote:

"I'm just venting and I know because I've been dealing with these idiots for 50yrs now since birth and we ALWAYS HV ISSUES TRUST."

"They automatically treat you like your [sic] uneducated and assume you have no knowledge."

T-Boz, real name Tionne Watkins, has been in and out of hospitals all her life due to painful sickle cell attacks that occur spontaneously without warning.

Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder that causes the oxygen-carrying red blood cells to become rigid, deform and clump together in blood vessels, causing extreme pain in joints and extremities.

Rapper Cardi B admitted herself to a hospital on Wednesday, after suffering "real bad stomach problems for four days."

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper shared a Twitter picture of her hospital wristband and wrote that she had admitted herself after suffering abdominal pains.

"Honestly, cause I been having some real bad stomach problems for four days, I went to the ER last night," she penned, alongside a crying face emoji.

Stomach pains can be caused by a multitude of conditions such as indigestion, infections, and diseases such as cancer and pelvic inflammatory disease, also known as pelvic inflammatory disorder (PID).

What is pelvic inflammatory disease?

Pelvic inflammatory disorder is an infection of the female reproductive system, mainly the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.

Women usually seek medical treatment when they suffer symptoms including lower abdominal pain, foul vaginal discharge, fever, burning with urination, painful intercourse, bleeding after sex, or irregular menstruation.

Cardi didn't share her diagnosis with her followers, so we don't know the cause of her abdominal pain. We are not assuming she is diagnosed with PID.

Untreated PID can result in longterm complications of the female reproductive system including infertility, scarring, ectopic pregnancy, chronic pelvic pain, and cancer.

What causes PID?

The disease is caused by bacteria that spreads from the vagina and cervix to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. The disorder usually affects promiscuous women who have multiple sex partners or one sex partner who is burning.

40 percent of women diagnosed with PID also have a chlamydial infection or gonorrhea. Women who douche frequently can inadvertently push bacteria into their upper reproductive organs.

How is PID diagnosed?

PID is diagnosed during a pelvic examination, cervical observation, laparoscopy, or tissue biopsy. A definitive diagnosis of PID is made when pus is found in the fallopian tubes during surgery or during ultrasound.

How can I prevent PID?

Your doctor will advise no sex until the infection is resolved. If you are a sex worker, you will be advised to use protection such as condoms or barrier methods. You should also get tested regularly for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms of PID.
