Avatar n tn I also have some pain pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>, opposite the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on the front. My last menses was on March 23rd background-color: #dae8f4'>and lasted for 4 days. I take BP meds (labatelol) for moderately high BP, I have been diagnosed with PCOS, background-color: #dae8f4'>and was prescribed Victoza for that about 5 months ago. I take a prenatal vitamin every day. I am afraid I have background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis.
Avatar n tn hello, ive been having a dull pain on my lower right side of my stomach for about 4 days. It hurts when i walk, or push on it, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> goes away background-color: #dae8f4'>and comes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> regularly. The skin from my pelvic region down to my feet is tender to the touch. I have muscle aches in my legs. Also both the lymph nodes on my pelvis have been swollen this whole time. I dont know if ive been running fevers, background-color: #dae8f4'>and i do not feel like throwing up. Are these signs of background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis or something else? thank you.
Avatar m tn My daughter was seen at a hospital almost 2 weeks ago for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the lower right side of her abdomen. They did a CT scan background-color: #dae8f4'>and a ultrasound of her stomach. The test came back showing a enlarged or abnormal appendix with inflammation. The transfered her to a childrens hospital background-color: #dae8f4'>and ended up not doing the surgery for background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis. They said that all she has is an inflamed appendix background-color: #dae8f4'>and no other symptoms of background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis.
Avatar n tn Surgeon has kindly addressed your question in his comments below background-color: #dae8f4'>and I agree with his assessment. An abdominal plain film or CT scan would be the best test to evaluate the possible sources of the pain (i.e. hernia, bowel obstruction, diverticulitis etc.). Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Avatar m tn I also have this pulsating around my belly button background-color: #dae8f4'>and it will shoot down to the right side then give me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I also have headaches background-color: #dae8f4'>and have gotten easily hot background-color: #dae8f4'>and overheated during the night. I know im not pregnant because ive testes background-color: #dae8f4'>and JUST came off my period background-color: #dae8f4'>and it was normal. Could this be my apendix? UTI? I had a UTI about 2 months ago could i have another? Oh background-color: #dae8f4'>and i feel like i have trappe gas background-color: #dae8f4'>and it travels all over my stomach.
272729 tn?1194280557 Also, I had background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis 25 years ago - very subtle right lower quadrant pain, they thought it was a ruptured cyst background-color: #dae8f4'>and back then they always operated on them so when they went in, they found the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> was really bad if you pressed on my abdomen background-color: #dae8f4'>and it was hard to stbackground-color: #dae8f4'>and up straight or sit - I laid in the fetal position. But, that was my first experience with Demerol background-color: #dae8f4'>and it's been a long ride since so I really understbackground-color: #dae8f4'>and your concern. Good luck!!
Avatar n tn I am not suggesting that you have it, but if you are not getting answer's, it might be worth checking out. Normally, the muscles in the wall of the stomach contract in a coordinated way to move food through the stomach into the small intestine. The autonomic nervous system controls this muscular action. Diabetes can damage the autonomic nerves. This is called diabetic autonomic neuropathy. As a result, the stomach loses it's coordinated muscular activity background-color: #dae8f4'>and doesn't empty the stomach properly.
4186692 tn?1350826888 18th July,2015 After a few weeks of feeling unwell, mostly fatigue, aches background-color: #dae8f4'>and stomach discomfort, I had sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my stomach in the early hours.. This later migrated to my gut, in the form of sharp periodic cramps.background-color: #dae8f4'>and I had no appetite, although Icontinued to eat a little. I suspected gastro virus background-color: #dae8f4'>and had some peppermint tea which usually helps with tummy cramping, but it didn't have any effect. I spent the day mostly lying on the sofa.
Avatar m tn They said that if I was still in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> within the next 2 days, then to come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> in. So, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> got worse background-color: #dae8f4'>and more frequent within the next 2 days. Naturally, we went back in. This time, they were certain it was my appendix. They even called down a surgeon to examine me, background-color: #dae8f4'>and he was certain it was my appendix. He said that they had to do the CT scan first, just in case. So they did the CT scan, background-color: #dae8f4'>and they couldn't find one thing wrong with my appendix.
Avatar n tn I am a female, 25 years old background-color: #dae8f4'>and I have been suffering from abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> for years. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is usually in the right side, mid-way between my bellybutton background-color: #dae8f4'>and my hip. At times the pain is sharp background-color: #dae8f4'>and stabbing background-color: #dae8f4'>and causes me to double over in pain - I would give it a 7 out of 10 for intensity. Other times the pain on my right side is dull background-color: #dae8f4'>and aching, background-color: #dae8f4'>and sometimes this is replaced with a burning sensation.
727090 tn?1268842948 Well actually in April I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>and achyness in my pelvic background-color: #dae8f4'>and vaginal area background-color: #dae8f4'>and the ER did a vaginal ultrasound background-color: #dae8f4'>and pelvic ultrasound. All they found was a very small amount of fluid in my pelvis. She said that a cyst probably bursted background-color: #dae8f4'>and the body has a way of naturally absorbing the fluid. She told me it was very common to get a cyst every month around period time background-color: #dae8f4'>and it popping. Then from April to June i had a severe bouts of not being able to have bowel movements.
Avatar m tn I ended up having what I thought was a normal indigestion episode Saturday along with my sugars being a little up. When the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> didn't go away Sunday it turned out that I had <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span>. I had to wait what seemed like forever until I could have the surgery. I ended up having it at about 5am monday morning.
Avatar n tn I just saw your post after I posted mine. I am wondering the same thing almost. Does your back pain go into your leg or both legs? background-color: #dae8f4'>and doesn't go into the butt cheek? (I had to tell them mine didn't bc it doesn't bc the 1st thing they say is sciatica when my symptoms are way off from that.
Avatar n tn <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> usually moves from the right towards your navel, background-color: #dae8f4'>and sometimes down into your right leg, accompanied by a fever. I would definitely ask if they have ruled out background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis. Take care....
Avatar n tn I was also a little scared, but the surgery was so minor I was out background-color: #dae8f4'>and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> on my feet in a week. I couldn't lift anything but there was no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>and the doctors background-color: #dae8f4'>and nurses were all wonderful. Now it is such a simple operation I doubt they will even fully put you under. You won't feel a thing background-color: #dae8f4'>and it will be over before you know it. I know any surgery is a bit of a worry but you will be totally fine. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Monday evening all of a sudden an intense <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> muscles began, background-color: #dae8f4'>and within the hour I could barely stbackground-color: #dae8f4'>and up. Then my head started pounding background-color: #dae8f4'>and everything slowed down. I went home background-color: #dae8f4'>and took echichea background-color: #dae8f4'>and drank tea. That night I woke up every hour on the hour to urinate, from 1 (because I couldn’t fall asleep at all until then), to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, then finally got myself up at 11:11.
Avatar n tn I have been wondering if i have <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span>?I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> now for almost a week around my belly button background-color: #dae8f4'>and lower right side mostly.My stomach seems swollen, background-color: #dae8f4'>and sometimes the pain gets so sore when i move, cough, sneeze or walk to fast.It all started last week when i was using my treadmill.The pain started shortly before i was done using it background-color: #dae8f4'>and sent me to the floor, afraid to move.The pain subsided a lot 2 days later.Then i had sex background-color: #dae8f4'>and it made the pain come back even worse.
7489440 tn?1442011976 Saturday I woke up with the most horrific <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my lower right side. At first Itthought it was needing to go to the bathroom. It subsided for a couple of hours. So I thought nothing of it. Went to bed, on Sunday the pain was back background-color: #dae8f4'>and spread to my whole abdominal area. I haven't ate much but feel full background-color: #dae8f4'>and bloated. I can't move because if I do it seems that I jar the pain. Any sudden movement such as couching or sneezing makes it 5 times worse.
Avatar m tn I make myself vomit once. -Thursday (20.10) In the morning the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> centres around right bottom part of the stomach. I go to a doctor. He tells me to do a USG scan background-color: #dae8f4'>and a blood test. USG reveals nothing. Blood test - Leukocytosis - 13500/mm³. Doctor tells me to wait background-color: #dae8f4'>and see what happens. If I start feeling worse then to go to an emergency room. Still the pain is big when I move/take a deep breath/or touch my stomach. -Friday (21.10) The pain seems to ease but it is still nagging.
Avatar f tn For the last five days I have been having pains in my back, kidneys, right side, right side abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> near my belly button, pelvic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> right next to my hip bone, headaches, background-color: #dae8f4'>and nausea. I'm still able to pass gas, background-color: #dae8f4'>and eat, walk background-color: #dae8f4'>and jump without pain, background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
Avatar f tn He pushed on my belly background-color: #dae8f4'>and said I didn't have a hernia background-color: #dae8f4'>and since all my tests were fine that I probably strained a muscle. I was so upset over his dismissal of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that I left. I lasted one night before I was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> in the ER (different hospital!). I got them up to speed on the past week background-color: #dae8f4'>and they insisted on redoing a CT scan background-color: #dae8f4'>and pelvic ultrasound. Another normal result. I was admitted again background-color: #dae8f4'>and the doc was convinced that I was leaking from my cyst.
Avatar m tn I've been having a sharp to dull pain on my lower to upper abdomen for the past three days. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> radiates from my belly button to the left side of my abdomen than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> to my ride upper background-color: #dae8f4'>and lower abdomen. I've also been experiencing a gurgling stomach, excess gas background-color: #dae8f4'>and loose stool.
Avatar m tn This is most commonly infectious in origin but can occur due to other causes as well. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span> is usually sharp background-color: #dae8f4'>and starts in the periumbilical area (area around the umbilicus) background-color: #dae8f4'>and later shifts to the right lower zone. It is usually associated with vomiting background-color: #dae8f4'>and some fever. A dull aching pain with severe tenderness in the right lower zone may persist for few days. Hence, given your description, the likelihood of background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis is low.
Avatar f tn I am a 28 year old female with background-color: #dae8f4'>chronic dull aching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in LRQ for about a week now. Was admitted to hospital on Mon released on Tuesday to rule out background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis...While there my WBC was high 12,500 but went back down to normal next day...pain iS alot better but still there along with nausea background-color: #dae8f4'>and low grade fever 99.6 at highest. They said I didn't have background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis but I have convinced myself otherwise. I am so nervous that it's gonna rupture background-color: #dae8f4'>and I'm gonna die.
148354 tn?1211237506 I went home, background-color: #dae8f4'>and within an hour was doubled over in excruciating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Long story short, ended up in ER with acute <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span>. Had a laporoscopy background-color: #dae8f4'>and woke up in ICU - the appendix had been leaking background-color: #dae8f4'>and was ready to rupture. As a final note - I explained all my symptoms to the doctors background-color: #dae8f4'>and colleagues at work (I work in a health oriented environment) background-color: #dae8f4'>and ALL of them said that the previous incidents were unrelated. I don't believe them background-color: #dae8f4'>and am sure that I experienced background-color: #dae8f4'>chronic background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis.
Avatar n tn He sent me for a CT which confirmed mild <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span>. Don't have typical <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span> symptoms other than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>and some nausea. My doc says to get it taken out. I went for a consult with a general surgeon background-color: #dae8f4'>and he said he isn't 100% that's my appendix since I don't have all the acute symptoms. He said there is no such thing as background-color: #dae8f4'>chronic background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis background-color: #dae8f4'>and my doc says "oh yes there is". UGH...I am going to another top notch surgeon in Boston for a second opinion on Thursday? Any thoughts?
10527507 tn?1444456981 I went to the ER Friday morning due to extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, after about 9 hours in the ER the MRI results came back that I had background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis background-color: #dae8f4'>and had to get rushed to the OR. Does anyone have any advice on how to get rid of the bloating, they said I need to 'pass gas' because they filled my stomach with air but no luck... already in pain, bloating background-color: #dae8f4'>and baby kicking isn't helping very much.
Avatar n tn This past Sunday, I was sent home from the ER with a diagnosis of early <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis</span>. I'd been suffering from a fever, lower/midline abdominal pain on my right side, background-color: #dae8f4'>and severe diarrhea for several days, background-color: #dae8f4'>and was told by my doctor to go to the ER to rule out background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis. Besides my signs/symptoms, the only abnormal finding was a slightly enlarged appendix in the ultrasound background-color: #dae8f4'>and CT.
Avatar m tn Multiple visits to cardio no specific diagnosis other than GERD. Taking PPI for 2 years. Six months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> I got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> at Right Lower Abdomen (RIF). The local GP thought Sub acute background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis background-color: #dae8f4'>and prescribed antibiotics. My WBC at that time was normal. The pain was intermittent, some times sharp background-color: #dae8f4'>and mild. I never took the antibiotics. The next day the local GP said no background-color: #dae8f4'>appendicitis.
Avatar f tn Last night I started having a dull pain on the right side of my abdomen, across from my belly button, it went away today but came <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> around lunch time. It went away again background-color: #dae8f4'>and now at 2am it has come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. I pressed on my stomach a bit background-color: #dae8f4'>and it send a shooting pain through my belly button area. Its not SUPER painful, just more of a discomfort. I've also started urinating WAY more in the past hour background-color: #dae8f4'>and I'm not sure if its related but my knees began aching REALLY bad out of nowhere.
