Appendicitis left or right

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis left or right


Avatar f tn My six year old was sent for a CT scan today as she presented with symptoms of appendicitis. Severe lower abdominal pain. The pain intensified when walking or if she coughed. She is also complaining with right leg pain when she moves the leg. She is also running fever. The CT showed that her appendix was 5.5 cm. I was told they wouldnt do anything for her unless it was 6 cm or larger.
Avatar n tn What you describe could be a number of things, including pancreatitis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, ... or something else altogether. This set of symptoms doesn't seem to be the type one can afford to ignore. Pls see a doc/urgent care right away. Hope you'll write again to let us know how you're doing.
Avatar m tn It hurts to walk and I must sit down with great care, I have performed some of the tests for appendicitis such as lying supine with my right leg bent and pushing over to the left...this results in much pain. Having been an EMT for many years I understand this could be appendicitis, however, I am confused about the pain free lapses. I live in the middle of no where with poor hospitals about 2 and a half hours away.
4186692 tn?1350826888 The pain remained but became a bit less intense or maybe I got used to it. I also developed an ache in my lower right side. Sunday was much the same except that I took my husband to the airport to fly off to work in another city, so was mostly alone. My son and daughter-in-law live in a selcontained flat in the ground floor part of our home. On Monday I rang work to say that I was sick and wouldn't be coming in.
Avatar f tn Noticed mild pain in my lower left side to bend over or take a deep breath, even take a long stride with my right leg. Went to the ER to have it checked out. They did a blood test and a urine test. Nothing unusual they said. Proceeded to do a CT scan, in which they said the results were normal. Nurse followed up by telling me to take miraLAX because I was just backed up. I had 3 bowel movements between 6pm Thursday and Friday at 5am when I woke up (the day I visited the ER).
Avatar n tn Now it's 2 in the morning and my left and right stomach feel really full and tight. I feel popping and gurgling but I also have back pain and pain in my right side.
Avatar m tn It is a recurring pain that fluctuates from mild to that sharp pain and it goes along with the movement of my digestive from left to right. Is this peptic ulcer that complicated into appendicitis?or still peptic ulcer?
Avatar f tn He took out my appendix which he said wasn't too inflamed but didn't look normal and he burned some lesions that had grown from a prior surgery 3 months back. After I woke up the shoulder pain was gone from the left side and appeared on the right (which was probably from the anesthesia). The belly pain subsided and I was discharged as soon as I could pee. 5 post surgery... I have right shoulder pain that I feel when I'm in certain positions (like laying on my left side).
Avatar n tn The pain 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. Occassionally I have pain just to the left of my bellybutton which can be quite sharp (as though someone were prodding me with a needle).
9068836 tn?1401935720 get this pain on my right side like right next to my bellybutton , kidney & gallstones where ruled out i had an ultrasound well 2 & a pelvic ultrasound i mostly get this pain when im constipated!
Avatar m tn the pain now is middle of my stomach and alittle sharper pain two inch to the left of my right hip bone do i need to be worried about appendicitis at this point, i'm freaking out and doubting the PA i saw before
Avatar m tn hi im really worried i have appendicitis, i had diarrhea for 3 days, and now after all of that my lower right and lower left sides have a dull, tenderness to them, its not severe pain but im worried it might become severe. the more i think and read abut it the more it hurts. above my belly button hurt when touched as well, i do not have a fever, and i have not been vomiting, but once in a while my stomach feels like there s a dull kick in those three areas.
Avatar n tn This past Sunday, I was sent home from the ER with a diagnosis of early appendicitis. I'd been suffering from a fever, lower/midline abdominal pain on my right side, and severe diarrhea for several days, and was told by my doctor to go to the ER to rule out appendicitis. Besides my signs/symptoms, the only abnormal finding was a slightly enlarged appendix in the ultrasound and CT.
Avatar n tn I have been have sharp pain on my left side on and off for at least 5 months when I intially got it I was sleep and went directly to the er room and told them I thought I was having appendicitis and the doctor told me know he says the pain alwas starts on the right side and I know thats not always true it can start onany side than float around. Yesterday my right side was hurting really bad and when I start walking or coughing it got worse i had to stop doing what I was doing.
148354 tn?1211237506 How bad was your sons pain when this first started. Right now it's next to my daughters belly button. It hurts worse when she jumps or runs or when the area is pressed. She's occasionally nauseous but no vomiting. The pain has slowly gotten a little worse as the week goes on. All her blood work and ultrasound came back normal. My gut is telling me this is related to her appendics but the childrens hospital said it wasn't and they have no idea what is wrong. Thanks in advance.
148354 tn?1211237506 Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when sitting Burning or tingling down the leg Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot A constant pain on one side of the rear A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up Low back pain may be present along with the leg pain, but usually the low back pain is less severe than the leg pain Symptoms that may constitute a medical emergency include progressive weakness in the leg or bladder/bowel incontinence....
405614 tn?1329147714 No inflammation in the right lower quadrant or adenopathy is appreciated which would suggest appendicitis. When the doctor told me that the CT was normal, I asked him if the appendix was viaualized. He actually said "I could see about this much (holding his fingers an inch or so apart) and it looked fine, not swollen or anything". I'll keep following up; my PCP is pretty great about that stuff. Oops, better go!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I need some help understanding if I have chronic appendicitis or possible acute appendix issues or just Irritiable Bowel syndrom issues. This is what I feel is going on. Ok, so for about a week or so I've been feeling some strange things going on in the area of my appendix and have no clue what it could be but I'm so worried. Now, I've read so many stories on this issue and most people say the pain they feel is so intense, extremely painful, sweating, and vomiting, and what not, but not me.
Avatar m tn They bite into the gut wall when they grow or mate, and can lead to appendicitis on the long term. the pain is usually right or left or even underneath the belly button, and feels like a pinch with a needle or, if more severe, a hot knife. Get a scotch tape test done, best in the week after full moon (they are more active then). Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hello~You could have what is called "Chronic Appendicitis" This is where the appendix will hurt periodically but not all the time and it usually is not as dangerous, I am surprised that your doctor did not do a white blood count, this would help to determine if this was the case as the white count would be elevated to a certain degree.
Avatar m tn I've been having a sharp to dull pain on my right lower to upper abdomen for the past three days. The pain radiates from my belly button to the left side of my abdomen than back to my right upper and lower abdomen. I've also been experiencing a gurgling stomach, excess gas and loose stool.
Avatar n tn hi, ever since about almost a week ago ive been having on and off pains around my right hip above my right pelvic area. ive been thinking it might be appendicitis because i have a fever currently but dont know about a loss of appetite. Also it feels like a pinching pain internally, but i have a feeling its not appendicitis since it didnt originate from near the central part of my abdomen. also i occasionally but not as much get the same kind of pain on my left pelvic area on my left hip.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! In all probability you have cystitis or urinary bladder infection or UTI or stones that have moved out of the kidney. Urine examination followed by culture will be required. Treatment would include antibiotics, anti inflammatory, plenty of fluids and good personal hygiene. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar f tn and all of a sudden I have this SHARP pain on my right side. Right/diagonally above my hip. Im 12 weeks pregnant with twins. I have tried moving my body pillow and blankets to position myself more comfortably... but can still feel it. Pain at first was a 6/7 (small pain1-10being horrible ).. now positioned its at a 2 then a 6/7 again. Kinda like off and on... Should I be worried?
Avatar m tn A CT scan showed new clots in his right and left portal veins. I am told he should not have made new clots while on Lovenox. He is negative for all genetic testing and every other test they ran. He is otherwise healthy. They say his organs look fine right now and they put him on Arixtra. After he was able to go without the IV pain killers, they sent us home. This is where we are with no answers and a lot of pain.
Avatar m tn The pain associated with a rumbling appendix is usually restricted to the lower right abdomen, but sometimes shifts or extends to the upper right abdomen. Rumbling appendicitis can be treated, if diagnosed correctly. If feverish symptoms develop, it is essential that the patient is admitted to hospital immediately." As we all know, a ruptured appendix can be potentially fatal.
Avatar f tn Right side can be appendicitis. They need to check this again. I had chronic appendicitis with my daughter.. paid started just before I conceived. Kept getting worse and worse and no one was believing me except my obe, who kept sending me to gastro doctors who told me there was nothing wrong and to come back after the baby was born (in 6 months). Finally the pain was so bad my obe admitted me to the hospital.
Avatar n tn I am having extreme pain on my right side. It is non ending, Ive had it for 3 days now. Its directly on my side just under my ribs. Any clue on what it might be?
