Hi all, This is my first time on this site but I am having the same issues as everyone else. I am hoping someone can give me some kind words. I have had really really bad constipation and finally went to my gastro doc. He did an xray which showed poop was everywhere! I did fleet for 2 days but still felt really bloated. also noticed a pain (kinda like a muscle cramp) on my lower right side. that seems to be where the bloating it too.
I went to the ER 2 weeks ago cause I thought I had appendicitis. I had constipation. Could the anxiety be causing me to have this feeling in my rib? It is on the side of the left ribcage, not below the rib. THanks if anyone has experinced this.
Then, I went to my internist who thought it might be appendicitis so took a trip to the ER to find it was not appendicitis. The cat scan showed some minor cysts on my kidneys, but then also a "mixed density bilobed structure in the right lower quadrant) - my internist said that basically means an unidentifiable mass or blur of "something". After talking further, he referred me to a general surgeon.

There is no pain while coughing, though I haven't sneezed so I can't say if whether or not that causes pain. Applying pressure to the area does not cause any pain, and I could not feel any lumps or otherwise things that felt as if they shouldn't be there. Any idea what it might be? Or what could have happened? I first thought hernia, but I can not feel anything poking out. I next thought appendicitis, but I do not have any symptoms (aside from pain in that area).
it does not hurt much when i move around...I still have the pain in lower right once in a while all day... What causes this?
This would also be associated with loose bowel movements and nausea. Amongst other causes of low, central abdominal pain would include an constipation, bowel obstruction, appendicitis, or less likely, an aortic aneurysm. I would suggest plain films of the abdomen (KUB and upright) and a possible CT scan if there is no clear diagnosis on these preliminary studies. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Anyway, I went to the doctor today, and after normal blood and urine tests, all the doctor could say was that it may be appendicitis or sore muscles. I really don't think it is appendicitis. She said if it gets worst to go to the E.R. I was wondering, since the pain is not constant and there doesn't seem to be a consistent thing that causes the pain (again the pain is mostly in the groin and right on the side) how much of that is a chance at appendicitis?
It hurts so bad during the attack but I do not want to go to the ED and it not be anything but something like constipation. Have any ideas of what it is and what I should do?

Hi there, I can confirm the exact cause of your symptoms only after a complete history and clinical examination. There are several causes which can lead to these symptoms. A pulled muscle, trapped wind, ovarian cyst, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, constipation, duodenal ulcers, appendicitis, cholecystitis, kidney stones, cholecystitis all can pain on the right side of stomach. Since it has been persisting since such a long time it is best to get investigated.
Hello, Such an abdominal pain could be due to UTI, cystitis (bladder infection), trapped wind or intestinal gas, constipation, anxiety, gastrointestinal causes like appendicitis or kidney stones. Investigations like blood tests (CBC, ESR), urine test, x ray, ultrasound or CT/MRI scan can be required to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Some of the causes of stomach pain include GERD or acid reflux disease. This disease usually occurs when the lining of the stomach and esophagus are damaged due to a low tolerance to acid commonly found in spicy, tangy, or fatty foods. Another possibility of stomach pain could be appendicitis, ulcers, or gallstones. These causes of stomach pain are not as common as GERD; however, it is very important that you look into these possibilities if your stomach pains persist.

In the beginning of decemeber I began having upper right abdominal pain, (I already had my gallbladder removed), around the 16th of Dec, the pain moved to the lower abdomin, shifting from middle, right and to left, visited the ER 4 times, all blood test, urine test normal, CT scan normal, checking for appendicitis. Upper GI with barium normal and abdominal ultra sound normal. Pelvic vaginal ultrasound normal however 2cm cyst on right ovary. My PCP said nothing to worry about with that cyst.
I had asked if it was appendicitis, but the doctor said it was not. But I am wondering what else it could be then or do you think the doctor misdiagnosed?

You're very young for this to be cancer. Have they checked you for appendicitis? It causes pain to go down your leg, and pain between your ovary area and navel. I have never heard of anyone having sciatica pain with colon cancer, I think this was more of a coincidence with the lady you speak of. A blood test would tell your doctor if this is appendicitis. I have seen cases where it lasts quite awhile before becoming really inflammed.
