Appendicitis pain in shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis pain in shoulder


I am a female, 25 years old 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 and my hip. At times the pain is sharp and stabbing 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 and aching, and sometimes this is replaced with a burning sensation. 5 post surgery... I have right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that I feel when I'm in certain positions (like laying on my left side). I also feel belly pain and a shortness of breath when I'm off my icepack for too long. Is this normal for the recovery process??
A week later pain still constant but than as suddenly pain in belly button appeared and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> gone. Than horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in middle of chest and back between both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my Lower Right Quadrant too, so I suspected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span>. 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.
i don't know what's wrong but as of a little after 3am today I had pains in my right side and it goes around to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> gets bad when I lay down on my left and right side and it hurts to breath when I get the pain and it hurts to hick up and when a burp comes up. And I got some of the pain now it left for a bit and I'm not sure if I should go to the hospital tonight. I can't handle the pain when it gets bad and even now. When I get pain I don't feel like eating.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a sudden severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my right side abdomen to hip (pelvic area). then to my back from hip up to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> (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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> can even ache in the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> 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. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span> is commoner in the early teens to thirties. It can however occur in any age group. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span> 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, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>, arm etc? I also get a bit of numbness in patches from time to time. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>? Does the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 Blood in bowels.... Diarrhea or constipation I do tend to have the occassional <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> -The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span>/right hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> -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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my lower right side sometimes a little higher. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the middle of my back and my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> started in my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> Visceral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span> several times come in only complaining of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. (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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> can cause such <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my right lower abdomen (like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Appendicitis</span>). 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I had my gallbladder removed in April and continue to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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.
