Appendicitis pain in lower back

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis pain in lower back


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.

Avatar n tn Then the pain gets very sharp and spreads to the left side and lower left of the back, i get hit by a sudden feeling of weakness and have to lie down.

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.
334122 tn?1226631051 lower back pain on the right side of my body just above the waistline dont remember hurting it in any way it just started hurting kinda aches hurts worse when i sit down quickly kind of a throbbing also maybe i strained it somehow scared it might be my kidney.
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 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 expierienced some intense pain on the lower left side of my back about where my kidney would be, it just happened suddenly and it hurt so bad that i couldnt move. I also felt like I was going to throw up right after it hit. it only lasted about 10 minutes or so and i decided to look it up because i thought it could be appendicitis. any ideas what it could be? if so, what actions should i take?
Avatar f tn Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do for lower back pain besides a heating pad(I don't have one yet) I can barely walk it hurts so bad. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn Well, the last attack I had was two years ago... I had severe pain in my lower right side, rectal pain, and loose stools. They performed a colonoscopy and everything showed up fine. Well, I am having another attack now... I have severe pain from my belly button down on the right side. I have diarrhea or loose stools and LOTS of pain-- on my side and rectal.
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 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 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 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 f tn Last night, right after work, I started having severe pain in my lower back/right side. I had a terrible time sleeping (cold not get comfortable in any position...hurt worse to lay on my left side than on my right...lying on the left cause my right side to hurt worse.) and woke at 2am in severe pain. My husband gave me 2 advil PM and it eased the pain enough to allow me to sleep in a propped up position. the pain is not nearly as intense, but is still there all day today.
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 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 Once gone, I am continuing to have a cramping pain in my upper right abdomen, I have cramping and gas pains accross my lower abdomen and I also have achiness on both side of my lower back. The pains are dull but are rather consistent and don't seem to go away. My appetite comes and goes. When I do eat the pain gets stronger after a few hours. Looking to know if food poisoning can last that long or if there is another problem unrelated?
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 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.
148354 tn?1211237506 I have had terrible pain in the lower right in my groin area that extends through to my back (pain) and is in the lower right. They have never found a cause. I finally had to start taking pain meds to control the pain. Long story short, I have had several episodes with klebsiella bacteria and repeatedly have to battle infections with it throughout the year(s).
Avatar f tn Now its back to a sharp pain on the right side. In the past few days though, I've also developed a sharp pain in my right testicle. I can't feel any lumps and it doesn't hurt worse when pressured. There are no other noticable symptoms, nor an event that triggered it. Web MD suggests a broken Collar Bone which I know is definitely not the case! Obviously I know anything like this could be quite serious so will seek help when possible but any experience would be great.
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....
