How long appendicitis symptoms last

Common Questions and Answers about How long appendicitis symptoms last


Avatar m tn It feels like cramp/bloated/trapped gas feeling. My stomach often makes rumbly/bubbly noises. My MAJOR concern is appendicitis - as I know how important it is to get the appendix taken out before it bursts. Given that my pains are not concentrated in the right and not that intense, does it seem unlikely to ne appendicitis? Could appendix symptoms drag on this long (it's coming up for a week). The pain has got no worse and if anything seems to be improving.
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.

148354 tn?1211237506 I've posted on symptoms forums about chronic abdominal for last 7 months,(upper and low abdominal )pelvic,rectal and back pain,lost almost 60lbs,hair loss,no appetite,nausea,fever,and just am a mess from this pain.
Avatar n tn I know this means that the appendix lies behind where it's supposed to be and is harder to diagnose because of that. What would be the symptoms of retrocecal appendicitis? How is it definitevely diagnosed? Would fever, nausea, vomiting and RLQ pain always be indications of appendicitis? Would would case RLQ with out fever, nausea and vomitting? What is chronic appendicits and how long does it last? Can your appendix act up for many months before surgery would be involved?
Avatar f tn Do I have appendicitis?? Or is this just a stomach bug?? How long does it take for the pain to move from the upper stomach to the lower right abdomen??
Avatar n tn What is chronic appendicits and how long does it last? Can your appendix act up for many months before surgery would be involved? I ask this because I do get RLQ without fever and the other symptoms, and GYN said it wasn't gynecoligcally related. MD had sent me for abdominal x-rays which were negative. This was quite some time ago and I still experience this. Could it be due to back problem and poor posture? _______________ Dear Diane, Appendicitis can be a difficult diagnosis to make.
Avatar n tn Just remain proactive with your doctor and maybe record when your pain occurs and what your food/fluid intake was for the day, how long the pain persisted, location of pain, intensity etc. This gives him (and you)something to work with. I hope you get some relief (and some answers) soon.
Avatar f tn Shortly before my 30th birthday I was in the ER with what I thought was appendicitis. They did a CT scan and much to my embarrassment I was just really constipated. Can you imagine how embarrassed I was? The doctor did mention I had a few complex cysts on my ovary. I thought maybe thats why I felt so terrible. After the news we had the cysts removed. I was hopeful that this was going to give me my energy back. No go.
Avatar n tn Yes it is still from whats in us. Think how long we put the **** in us. Keep drinking fluids until your going to burst and eat good to this helps flush our systems out. Get exercise too.. Myself I hate this part but the more we exercise the better we feel.. I hope I helped some it take along time to get our minds and bodies back. But it took along time to get us where were at too.. Hang in there it does get Easier and better over TIME!!!!! Ill be praying for you. God Bless..
Avatar n tn I didn't have a lot of the normal symptoms either. Actually, what started it was I had Appendicitis 3 years ago and when they did a Cat Scan at that time they noticed I had a small mass in my small intestine (in the terminal ileum). They went ahead and took my appendix out and decided to just keep an eye on this mass since we didn't really know what it was. So I had Cat Scans periodically to check on it and it never grew that next year so we stopped checking on it.
Avatar f tn What do you do to relieve your pain? For how long does it last? Again, I agree with you that anginal pain has most of the characteristics of myocardial infarction, but it is important to know whether you are having stable or unstable angina.
Avatar f tn They are still suggesting I come in for this shot despite me telling them I am terribly uncomfortable with it. My question is... how long did it take for your doctor to recommend the laproscopy? Did they throw you through the ringer like this? My best friend has Endo and was in surgery within a WEEK of SUSPECTING she had Endo!!
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
793305 tn?1493929118 Has anyone ever said anything about Hashimoto's thyroiditis? No....Within seconds of looking at my results, that's how he diagnosed me. My antibodies were high. That had never been mentioned before. We did an ultra sound within a couple of days. That had never been done before. I have a nodule that is slightly more than 2 cm. He sent me to an endo doc within a week. She did a biopsy, which came back showing signs of cancer and she immediately set me up with a surgeon.
Avatar f tn I am 33. In Dec I started having severe lower back pain & went to my GP In Feb. He did an ultrasound & found that I had a 2 cm ovarian cyst. GYN put me on 3 months of bc pills. Since last month I have been spotting for a week every 2 weeks. From Dec to currently I have had continuous lower back pain. Sometimes it is bearable but at other times it is unbearable. Last Sat I started developing lower right sided tenderness that became extreme. ER visit this Mon. They did a CT Scan.
6402846 tn?1391067348 How long have you been on the Doxy? How long have you been sick? All these factors matter. If Bartonella tests are negative, there are some anti-Bart herbals that can help figure out if Bartonella is present. An integrative LLMD can prescribe one or more of them to find out. IGeneX looks at Lyme specific antibodies in their interpretation, so if IGeneX says you're positive, I'd be very confident that it's accurate. You're asking good questions! Keep doing that!
Avatar f tn how long does it take for symptoms to appear if Lyme disease is present? I need to stop stressing over this.I live in Alabama and this happened last week of April. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I guess I am just really stumped here. I can't imagine how a somatic illness could cause these very real symptoms that can be seen, show up on lab tests and cause so much pain. There is no way you can fake pitting edema, especially when each time it has been noted, they have checked my blood sodium and done a urinalisis. My husband and kids could easily testify to the amount of chicken breast and egg whites I eat just to try and keep my albumine level near 3.0.
Avatar f tn Doctor still wants to check for appendicitis but hasn't called me back to order test which I would think is an emergency if it is the cause of cramps which at first were pretty bad and now are mild. I have never had symptoms this long. I have only had two (literally two) spots of blood since my missed period but those spots did not occur until 2/23 & 2/24. My cycle is very regular and is on average spaced 30 days apart.
7014780 tn?1395591257 Wow, 312 is dangerous (same as a rat!). How long did they last? Did your blood pressure drop or was your left ventricle able to fill with enough blood to keep your blood moving? So once a week you were 220 or 4 beats/second (same as a monkey), whereas I'm sporatic 160 bpm or 2.7 bp second. Your accessory pathway in the left Atria was not close to AV node where my Cardiologist thinks mine is, which is often damaged with AVNRT surgery resulting in AV Block needing a pacemaker.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have any experience with B vitamin deficiency or magnesium deficiency it seems both could explain my symptoms. And how they came on after a long period (4 months) of lots of alcohol abuse and very little sleep. Any other info would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn Hi there! I hope im posting in the right place! Well 2 years ago I had an appendicitis and i was operated to take it off.. Before that I rearly had any gas problems, but now after my operation, I started getting filled with gas.. Uptill the last month or so it was normal but now, i wake up bloated full of air, and sometimes i get sharp pains in my sides, i drink water (not exagerated but i drink), and i remain like this throughout all the day..
272759 tn?1270489194 -( caralea, how did your appointment go? best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn they said they tested me for everything, i dont know what everything is. i dont know how long i can continue to take this doctor has even precribed antibiotics for me. i ordered some on the internet but they ill take 11-20 days, maybe they will help. i believe you could still have some infection without testing positive. there is pid which there is no real test for and lymes disease which there is no real test for which can effect every organ in your body including your brain.
Avatar n tn I fall between the cracks when it comes to getting assistance, so I can't get any help for this condition and my disability. I don't know how long I will last without care, or without it surgerically removed. I only have the choice to go with alternative methods, and I have faith in it, but the reality of surgery in there--all the things I can't get taken care of.
Avatar n tn I've been having quite a lot of conditions over a period of about 2 months and have been going to the doctors over the last month. Symptoms have started adding up... And I don't like where they arrive. Currently, I believe I may quite likely, have a brain tumor. Of course no one believes me, I'm sure a lot of people weren't believed when they thought they had a brain tumor.
