Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis pain in shoulder

appendicitis

A week later pain still constant but than as suddenly pain in belly button appeared and pain in shoulder gone. Than horrible pain in middle of chest and back between both shoulder blades after drinking a margarita and eating fried chicken which I hardly ever do.
I'm a paramedic and see "referred pain" in the shoulder frequently when a person has problems like ovarian cysts and appendicitis...It's actually a symptom we look for...and, yes, it can be due to an acute condition...
It was diarrhea, loose watery stools,(3-7 BM) in the morning, then about 1-2 in the afternoon. I had pain in my Lower Right Quadrant too, so I suspected appendicitis. Surg said it was possible, but rare to have both. During surgery, he tried to view the appendix but could not see it due to adhesions from previous surgeries (2 lapros to lazer endro & total hyster). He insists that diahrea is not common with appendicitis. And he has gone back & forth with "chronic appendicitis.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a sudden severe pain in my upper right side. I don't know what part of the body. I was on my way to the restroom when it hit me. I have experienced this pain before, like a cramp when you wait too long to urinate, only this time it was so intense, I was doubled over on the floor. It lasted at least a consistent five minutes then subsided. Since then, I have had small similar pains at random. I have felt pain in my right and left side now.
I feel so much pain in my right side abdomen to hip (pelvic area). then to my back from hip up to my shoulder (right side). Are these a symptoms of having an appendicitis? I'd have been checked up five times already but still the same findings a UTI. My urine have puss. Sometimes i feel pain in my pelvic area when i urinate. Is this a UTI or an appendicitis? Please give me an a hoping answer. Thank you!
This causes pain in the upper right side, under ribcage, can migrate into back, accompanied with nausea, headaches, and even fever at times. The pain can even ache in the right shoulder and down the arm. Lemon juice with a couple tsps of olive oil is a great home remedy for this. It has always worked for me. It doesn't taste great, but works wonders.
It is the most common cause of right side abdominal pain requiring operation. Appendicitis is commoner in the early teens to thirties. It can however occur in any age group. The pain typically starts up in the abdomen, or around the belly button called umbilicus, then it moves to the lower right abdomen. In some individuals, the pain starts straight in the lower right abdomen. It gradually builds up in severity, initially niggling.
I believe the pain in your left chest/flank is connected (no pun intended!) to your pelvic pain...all these areas are connected by muscle tissue and gut lining tissue..If you have extensive scarring like it sounds you may, it all pulls..And this kind of pain refers to other areas...In the medical field, we call it "tracting"...I'll spare you the technical whys and hows, but just suffice to say, it follows body "channels" from bottom to top...
I wouldn't necessarily rule out appendix issues either - The symptoms of appendicitis can vary. It can be hard to diagnose appendicitis in young children, the elderly, and women of childbearing age. The first symptom is often pain around your belly button. (See: Abdominal pain) The pain may be minor at first, but it becomes more sharp and severe. Your appetite will be reduced and you may have nausea, vomiting, and a low fever.
I found this forum while searching the Internet for a possible diagnosis for the pain I have had now for 6 years in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen. I am an American living in a country that has poor medical services, and doctors who do not treat you, if they don't feel like it. You can only see a specialist if your GP makes the appointment for you. And you don't get the choice of which doctor you see.
It is normal for pain in that area to refer to other parts, such as the groin, shoulder, arm etc? I also get a bit of numbness in patches from time to time. The pain doesn't seem to be there when I wake up but comes on not long after and seems to vary in severity. It doesn't seem to be linked to what I eat of drink, but does seem to be stress related. Can anyone relate?
Is the pain just concentrated in your stomach, or have you noticed any pains in your right shoulder? Does the pain start after you have eaten a fatty or greasy food? Are you feeling nauseous, dizzy, bloated, or have headaches that seem to be concentrated behind your right eye? I'm asking all of this because about a year ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with stabbing pains in my right side and my right shoulder, so bad that I passed out 7 times within an hour. I went to the E.R.
I was not only ignored but told it was all in my head. I have suffered with this pain for over 12 years. I have given up and am using this website as a last resort. I have only been with one man, my husband, but cannot have relations because I don't particularly enjoy intercourse, I find it nausiating and very painful. I feel sorry for him because I know he has needs but I feel disgusting and ugly and can't see how he or anyone could possibly want me. I even hate the thought.
I have no other symptoms except for these...no Blood in bowels.... Diarrhea or constipation I do tend to have the occassional shoulder pain but I put that down to the akward way I slept....and more than often that dissapears quite scared...
Not much to add here except that the "classic" pain of gall bladders is pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen (just below the ribs) and radiating straight through to the back - typically to the tip of the right shoulder blade (scapula). Now, gall bladders can be in really weird places.
-Joint pain -The appendicitis/right hip pain -Carpal Tunnel in both wrists (no idea why) -Tendinitis in right wrist and shoulder (caused my very minor injuries and haven't healed) -Severe headaches (back and top) -Dizziness -Excessive sweating (not when exercising, anytime) -Chest pain -Heart Palpitations -Short term memory loss -Severe Fatigue -Inability to focus/ concentrate, not doing well in school (used to be an A student) -Severe muscle weakness (my mom and i are on crutches
This all started about 8 weeks ago? I went to urgent care because I was having serious stabbing pains in my lower right abdomen. It started as stomach discomfort but after two days or so moved to my lower right abdomen. After seeing two doctors they were convinced that my appendix was inflamed and I even failed reflex tests but other symptoms were lacking. I had no diarrhea, no fever, no blood in my stool, and no nausea or vomiting.
i have been having pain in my lower right side sometimes a little higher. the pain is not a pain that is severe but more annoying. It comes and goes. I was diagnosed with IBS a while ago but i don't feel that this is that. Had pap smear done two months ago. it was negative. had colenoscopy in the summer of 1999 also negative. Could pain be gallbadder or something that i should really worry about.
however, the severe abdominal cramps are still there; I also feel pain in the middle of my back and my right shoulder. I'm always fatigued and I have no appetite. I've been constipated for the entire period. I belch constantly and it hurts right below my breast plate. Can I rule out things like appendicitis, kidney desease, or gallbladder desease? Can all of this be caused by the hiatal hernia? Could it be a bad viral infection? I have not been prescribed any antibiotics.
i though if i went to the bathroom it might help, but while on the throne, another sharp pain started in my right shoulder. then i started to feel dizzy, with my hearing dulled and my vision started to fail. it was similar to passing out. so i went back to bed, didn't pass out and laid there until the pain was not as bad. I have no clue as to what caused this, its not cramps. but yesterday i went to an assessment park with some very intense rides.
Patients often move about in bed, occasionally finding relief with a change in position. REFERRED PAIN Visceral pain may be referred to a remote area of the body, where it is perceived as cutaneous pain (sensation of pain in the skin) in an area supplied by the same spinal cord level as the affected abdominal organ. Referred pain is usually well localized and appears when noxious visceral stimuli become more intense.
Classic gallbladder pain is in the upper right quadrant and usually gets referred to the right shoulder and even shoulder blade area. Since you already have had appendix surgery (and particularly if it ruptured prior to surgery) you may have developed bowel adhesions - scar tissue. Bowel adhesions can cause the symptoms you are experiencing, and they don't show up on tests - any tests, unless your intestines are 100% obstructed and you are throwing up feces.
It shouldn't give you that pain into your back, but I have also seen appendicitis several times come in only complaining of shoulder pain. (I'm a ER nurse for 38 yrs).I hope you can get to the bottom of it soon. I bet it's not fun.
While this feels comforting to me, in some strange way, that this would suggest that the PAIN IS NOT in my head; the question is, what is it? And, what abdominal pain can cause such pain that no medical professional, so far, has been able to diagnois or develope a plan of care to treat the pain! It is INDEED FRUSTRATING and I sympathize with your friend. Very truly yours, M.
I am 12 years old and I have been on crutches for 6 weeks. It started with pain in my right lower abdomen (like appendicitis). I was brought to the hospital where they did an x-ray and cat-scan of my hip area. The doctors suspected it was appendicitis until they saw the test results- completely normal. About 4 days later my abdominal pain worsened suddenly and I couldn't move my right leg. I went to the hospital again, they did the x-ray and cat scan again of my hip, which were normal.
My husband started hurting in his upper stomach on the right. It radiates through his back. It started last week when he was on a flight. He had eaten a breakfast sandwich and got really nauseated. He was really misserable and drank some club soda thinking it would make him feel better. He ended up in the lavatory, throwing up the club soda. As he was walking, he started feeling better and thought it was just a bad breakfast sandwich. When he ate a late lunch, he got sick again.
First let me start out by saying I'm not a doctor by any means. However, I certainly do feel your pain. I had my gallbladder removed in April and continue to have pain in my right side. The doctors have decided that my bile is too grainy for my system to process. I was on Actigall which seemed to be helping then I became allergic to it so had to stop taking it. My pain has returned. So I think the doctors might be on to something.
Your appendix is located roughlyin that area, though it would be hard to say with confidence that is what it is. Typically appendicitis comes with pain and nausea, too. Also, it could simply be gastrointestinal. I have alot of aches and pains in my abdomen that are just undiagnosed discomforts.. sometimes mild, sometimes bad. Pain can emminate and spread if there is pressure, depending on the severity.
I have been suffering from severe pain on my right side for 4 months. I have been in and out to doctors who try to understand why I am in pain. So far they have ruled out kidney stones, kidney infection, bladder infection, gallbladder problems, gallstones, liver problems, and appendicitis.
There's a distinct sharp pain in appendix area with burning everywhere else. I have shooting left shoulder pain also. On top of my shoulder. I have little appetite. Been dizzy and tired a lot. No rebound pain like appendicitis. But it does hurt to press on. Should I go to ER? I don't have insurance. My OBGYN wants to be paid up front for an ultra sound and I can't afford it. What could it be and what should I do? I'm 30 yrs old with a 2 1/2 yr old and a 5 month old.
