Appendicitis or gas pain

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis or gas pain

appendicitis

It could be a combo of period and gas! Gas is terrible painful at times, but combining menstrual cramping with gas is super painful! I've had it. I'd eat some bland foods (if that helps) and get a hot water bottle to ease the cramps.
For the last five days I have been having pains in my back, kidneys, right side, right side abdominal pain, pain near my belly button, pelvic pain, pain right next to my hip bone, headaches, and nausea. I'm still able to pass gas, and eat, walk and jump without pain, and when my stomach is pushed on there is no pain. I have been to the doctor multiple times for pains like these, I seem to get them each month.
I am still not convinced. Although I have no pain in my abdomen or any symptoms of appendicitis, I have a psychological block now. I can't not think about appendicitis. While placebo can resolve illnesses, the thought of having a problem can sometimes make you feel that you have a problem. I have these psychological feelings of uneasiness in my abdomen. How do I know it is psychological? I only feel the uneasiness when I think about appendicitis.
Chrone's disease and ulcerative colitis causes that type of pain. Do you have other symptoms like diarrhea, nausea, cramping, gas etc. with the pain? Check it out before agreeing to appendix removal. That surgeon told me that over 40% of appendix removed end up not being appendicitis.
Flank pain (where the kidney is), if that is what you are describing, above the hip bone on the side, would make me think you might want to check on the right kidney, maybe get a urine test. Or, if below the kidney, again, it might be gas pain, which can come and go as the pockets of gas move along. Pain in the upper right abdomen- could be gallbladder or bile duct, liver, gas in the transverse colon (common place for it to collect), costochondritis (if in the rib cage area up there).
Some of the symptoms are lower right quadrant pain, sometimes it's sharp, sometimes it dull, bloating mucus in stool, pain with or after intercourse, trapped gas or stool in the appendix area will double you over. WBC's will be somewhere from 9-11, not high enough to indicate an acute form of appendicitis but a chronic form of it.
When i experience this sharp pain, few min later i pass some (gross again) smelly gas. Pain subsides but returns later again. I have been diagnosed w/ibs. The pain i generally feel when its not sharp is like a small bee sting. I do off and on have nausea. Couple weeks ago i was seen in the er for upper right abdominal pain. Got brushed off as if it was nothing. Couple days later went back cause was getting worse and my dr. wasnt available and they ran blood work and ct scan. All normal.
I made my self throw up and I only threw up bitter, yellow, stomach acid, because I hadn't eaten yet. I threw up off and on pretty hard for about 3 hours, the stomach pain just felt like extreme gas. After that I started feeling better and could keep food and some meds down. After that I just relaxed for the rest of the day, the only problem was I still had the extreme gas feeling. I started burping and passing gas a lot after the first 5 hours and felt better.
I was told that in April for another er visit,put on antibotics,pain never left.The pain mimics appendicitis,but with having lap in Aug,dr said it looked normal.Is it possible for bacterial infection of vagina to be this painful and spread? I have not been sexually active (not in this pain..last thing on my mind is sex haha) and I'am std free.Could repeated vaginitis infections without treatment lead to pid and be source of lower abdominal pain? it travels down to my hip and thighs.
Does this sound possible based on the continuing pain? Or could the pain from the previous virus I had STILL be present after all this time? Or could it be a food allergy? Thanks.
She gave me the option of staying a day or two for pain control. I left that night still in pain and frustrated because I didn't have any answers. After another two weeks of pain I went to my OBGYN who had done a surgery on a ovarian cyst before. She said that she would do a laproscopy even though she didnt think she would find anything. I said I wanted to wait and see if the pain went away. The pain got progressively worse.
I had trouble sleeping last night because of lower right quadrant pain on the right side. The pain localized to where I've read the appendix is, and I've been having trouble with gas for the last couple days. I thought at first it might be gas, but passing gas didn't relieve it. Having a bowel movement didn't, either, though it hurt more when I tried to push at all. I don't have a fever, but I really don't feel well.
It could have possibly gas or menstural cramps so I paid no attention. After we left the game it felt worse so I looked up appendicitis. The symptoms were similar to mine but maybe it's just me imagining it. I told myself if I throw up I'm going to the hospital.
it ussually starts with really bad gas pain, my stomach will distend and I will be almost imobilized by the pain, this lasts about a day. after that I will have very bad constipation, I will feel like I need to use the bathroom but nothing will come out this last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. its like having diareah(sorry about the spelling) but with no relief. after that I do get diareah that will last about five days.
Hi, the symptoms you described could be due to appendicitis, that’s when you have pain on the right side just above the pelvis and you may also have referred pain around the umbilicus (belly button). The other symptoms for Appendicitis are fever, nausea, vomiting and malaise. The other causes for pain could be urinary tract infection, pelvic infections, renal colic and sometimes bowel infections.
Since it is your right side if the pain is severe or gets worse go to ER. Right side pain is an indication of appendicitis. other than that the pain could be from a back problem, pulled muscle, ect.
it could be gas pains or round ligament pains too. I know sometime I get both of these so bad I'm in tears just trying to move. My dr also told me that sometimes your pubic bone gets inflamed and that causes some awful pain as well. I'm sorry you're going though this...pain during pregnancy is no fun.
HI, The pains can be because of gas and bloating and can pass of on its own or with antacids. If it does not subside then other possibilities need to be excluded like intestinal infection or pelvic infection or appendicitis. Consult your Doctor for an examination. Take care and good luck.
the other one said it was nothing serious and prescribed antibiotics for ten days, So I took them for ten days, now I feel much better. I don't have pain in the lower side of the abdomen but I still have pain on the anterior surface of the right thigh and it extends to knee and ankle. Especially it hurts at night. pain gets worse when I palpate this area and it takes me several hours to go to sleep, What's your advice? What should I do?
The pain on left side of umbilicus near your belly button could be due to paraumbilical hernia, gastritis, referred pain of appendicitis, colitis or gas in abdomen. A doctor will need to i examine you and may be need a few tests to diagnose this. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Lower right abdomen pain is commonly due to appendicitis. The pain, can at times come and go and not give the classic picture. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, infection in kidney, kidney stones, an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle and constipation are the other causes. It can also be due to inguinal hernia.
3% mean while my liver enzymes were elevated for about 8 months and so I had a liver biopsy done while gall bladder was removed, pathology test results show slight inflammation to liver so I must repeat blood test within 3 weeks. I’m not sure if this pain I now have may be gas or my appendix???
This pain returned after i had a hard bowle movement. Passed some nasty gas today and releived SOME of the pain but the bloating is still there. It is couple days to my period and may have even just been another one of my cycsts bursting. I do also think i have vaginitis due to the strong antibactierial soap i use. And i have been passing some smelly clear mucus from the bum too. Are these signs of appendicitis? Gastritis? Cysts Bursting (i've had them burst but this was too much pain)?
If you're pain isn't better or its worse, dial 911.
Is he constipated? Severe constipation can cause EXTREMELY painful gas and pressure. If the pain is localized on the right side it could be anything from appendicitis to gallstones to just gas. If its more in the middle it may just be gastritis or extreme heart burn. I'm assuming the pain is in the stomach because you mentioned diarrhea and vomiting.
I would like to know how many people feel that they get atrial fibrillation and feel that it may be related to gas or full, bloated stomach, intestinal or digestive tract troubles etc? Any way I also would be interested in what anyone might have to say about it and or what they may have learned from this if they know or even think this to be the case for them and would also like to correspond with others to trade stories and info on what they've learned and done. Be well.
