Appendicitis pain in back

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis pain in back


Avatar n tn I also have some pain pain in my back, opposite the pain on the front. My last menses was on March 23rd and lasted for 4 days. I take BP meds (labatelol) for moderately high BP, I have been diagnosed with PCOS, and was prescribed Victoza for that about 5 months ago. I take a prenatal vitamin every day. I am afraid I have 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 pain goes away and comes back 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, and i do not feel like throwing up. Are these signs of appendicitis or something else? thank you.
Avatar m tn My daughter was seen at a hospital almost 2 weeks ago for pain in the lower right side of her abdomen. They did a CT scan 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 and ended up not doing the surgery for appendicitis. They said that all she has is an inflamed appendix and no other symptoms of appendicitis.
Avatar n tn Surgeon has kindly addressed your question in his comments below 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. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patient education only.
Avatar m tn I also have this pulsating around my belly button and it will shoot down to the right side then give me back pain. I also have headaches and have gotten easily hot and overheated during the night. I know im not pregnant because ive testes and JUST came off my period and it was normal. Could this be my apendix? UTI? I had a UTI about 2 months ago could i have another? Oh and i feel like i have trappe gas and it travels all over my stomach.
272729 tn?1194280557 Also, I had appendicitis 25 years ago - very subtle right lower quadrant pain, they thought it was a ruptured cyst and back then they always operated on them so when they went in, they found the appendicitis the pain was really bad if you pressed on my abdomen and it was hard to stand up straight or sit - I laid in the fetal position. But, that was my first experience with Demerol and it's been a long ride since so I really understand 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 and doesn't empty the stomach properly.
4186692 tn?1350826888 18th July,2015 After a few weeks of feeling unwell, mostly fatigue, aches and stomach discomfort, I had sharp pain in my stomach in the early hours.. This later migrated to my gut, in the form of sharp periodic cramps.and I had no appetite, although Icontinued to eat a little. I suspected gastro virus 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 pain within the next 2 days, then to come back in. So, the pain got worse 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, 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, and they couldn't find one thing wrong with my appendix.
Avatar n tn I am a female, 25 years old and I have been suffering from abdominal pain for years. 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.
727090 tn?1268842948 Well actually in April I had pain and achyness in my pelvic and vaginal area and the ER did a vaginal ultrasound and pelvic ultrasound. All they found was a very small amount of fluid in my pelvis. She said that a cyst probably bursted 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 and it popping. Then from April to June i had a severe bouts of not being able to have bowel movements.
Avatar f tn I have no fever or anything like that, nor am I having the typical rebound pain or any pain in my right lower stomach. It seems that the pain moves when I change position if that makes sense. Usually when I sit it moves in the lower area of my belly button, and when I lay down it moves to the upper area of my belly button. My stomach is constantly making gurgling noises and it feels like there are gas bubbles inside of me. I am really, really scared that something serious is going on with me.
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? 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 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 pain didn't go away Sunday it turned out that I had appendicitis. 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 Appendicitis pain usually moves from the right towards your navel, and sometimes down into your right leg, accompanied by a fever. I would definitely ask if they have ruled out appendicitis. Take care....
Avatar n tn I was also a little scared, but the surgery was so minor I was out and back on my feet in a week. I couldn't lift anything but there was no pain and the doctors 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 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 pain in my lower back muscles began, and within the hour I could barely stand up. Then my head started pounding and everything slowed down. I went home and took echichea 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 appendicitis?I have pain now for almost a week around my belly button and lower right side mostly.My stomach seems swollen, 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 and sent me to the floor, afraid to move.The pain subsided a lot 2 days later.Then i had sex and it made the pain come back even worse.
7489440 tn?1442011976 Saturday I woke up with the most horrific pain 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 and spread to my whole abdominal area. I haven't ate much but feel full 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 pain centres around right bottom part of the stomach. I go to a doctor. He tells me to do a USG scan and a blood test. USG reveals nothing. Blood test - Leukocytosis - 13500/mm³. Doctor tells me to wait 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 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.
Avatar f tn He pushed on my belly and said I didn't have a hernia and since all my tests were fine that I probably strained a muscle. I was so upset over his dismissal of my pain that I left. I lasted one night before I was back in the ER (different hospital!). I got them up to speed on the past week and they insisted on redoing a CT scan and pelvic ultrasound. Another normal result. I was admitted again 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 pain radiates from my belly button to the left side of my abdomen than back to my ride upper and lower abdomen. I've also been experiencing a gurgling stomach, excess gas and loose stool.
Avatar m tn This is most commonly infectious in origin but can occur due to other causes as well. Pain in appendicitis is usually sharp and starts in the periumbilical area (area around the umbilicus) and later shifts to the right lower zone. It is usually associated with vomiting 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 appendicitis is low.
Avatar f tn I am a 28 year old female with chronic dull aching pain in LRQ for about a week now. Was admitted to hospital on Mon released on Tuesday to rule out 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 and low grade fever 99.6 at highest. They said I didn't have appendicitis but I have convinced myself otherwise. I am so nervous that it's gonna rupture and I'm gonna die.
148354 tn?1211237506 I went home, and within an hour was doubled over in excruciating pain. Long story short, ended up in ER with acute appendicitis. Had a laporoscopy and woke up in ICU - the appendix had been leaking and was ready to rupture. As a final note - I explained all my symptoms to the doctors and colleagues at work (I work in a health oriented environment) and ALL of them said that the previous incidents were unrelated. I don't believe them and am sure that I experienced chronic appendicitis.
Avatar n tn He sent me for a CT which confirmed mild appendicitis. Don't have typical appendicitis symptoms other than pain and some nausea. My doc says to get it taken out. I went for a consult with a general surgeon 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 chronic appendicitis 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 pain, after about 9 hours in the ER the MRI results came back that I had appendicitis 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 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 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 m tn Multiple visits to cardio no specific diagnosis other than GERD. Taking PPI for 2 years. Six months back I got pain at Right Lower Abdomen (RIF). The local GP thought Sub acute appendicitis and prescribed antibiotics. My WBC at that time was normal. The pain was intermittent, some times sharp and mild. I never took the antibiotics. The next day the local GP said no appendicitis.
