Appendicitis??? Answer please.?
What is this?? Answers pleaseeee!!!!?
Im a 16 year old girl. I woke up this morning and the right side of my lower stomach as well as the right side of my lower back hurts. It hurts just like when im sitting and walking ecspecially. Its not cramps i know that cause its a different feeling. I havent done any weird exercises either. It hurts ecspecially when i get up or sit down and it hurts worse and worse. What is this? It isn't like a pendacitis or anything like that is it? Answers please!!!! Doesnt really hurt that much when i press on it just when i'm sitting or moving around.

Too tell you the truth.. my uncle (thats who i live with) won't think its anything since its just pain. Should i still do something about it now or wait untill tomorw?

oh my. My dad always used to tell me that if you can lift your right leg up to your chest (while sitting or standing) without it hurting so much as you cant do it, then you do not have appendicitis. So, give it a couple days. Dont wait too long, or you could have serious problmes

i had same thing, they took my appendicts out next day. let it go to long, and you can die.


wish I were
It could be a multitude of things. Just wait and see what happens. If you can stand to jump up and down it's not appendicitis!

there are many reasons for lower abdominal pain, pain in the lower right hand side could be appendicitis but could also be ovarian pain or bowels, if over the counter pain relief doesn't help or the pain lcast till tomorrow see your doctor. if it was severe appendiitis you would be in agony and would need (and want) to go to the hospital immediately


Kris
Call your doctor. Or call a hospital and speak to a nurse. Explain your pain and they can give you a better diagnosis.. If they think that something is wrong they may have you come in for tests. But i always say its better to be safe then sorry.


caffsans
go get it checked out now=who knows you may be saving yourself more problems down the road if you don't


childofevil2003
go to your school nurse or doctor....what ever you have.........then your Uncle will have no choice but to take you to the doctor. If it is appendicitis it could burst and you can die..........they need to take it out before it does!!!!

Although I’m in the medical field, a true diagnosis is based on history and a physical examination that cannot be performed over the internet. My suggestion is to see a physician as soon as possible. However, if you are having any of these symptoms, it is very possible that you have an appendicitis.

1. Pain starting in the lower right side of the abdomen.
2. Loss of appetite and fever.
3. Nausea or vomiting.
4. Diarrhea.
5. Prolonged burning feeling.
6. Abdominal wall is sensitive to Gentle pressure.
7. Coughing causes tenderness in the area.
Once again, to get a proper diagnosis, please see your physician ASAP.

The appendix is on the right side. It usually starts with a dull pain that resembles indigestion (could be in the middle) and will move toward your right side. Once it becomes more inflamed it will get increasingly more painful. If it is the appendix, it needs to be addressed sooner than later.
I would go see your regular doctor now. They can determine if it is the appendix or something else.

Two other things to consider: It could be a kidney infection, or (IF it is possible that you could be pregnant) it could be a tubal pregnancy. You should be checked by a doctor. Tell your uncle that you really feel like something is wrong and that you think you should be checked. Good luck!

Sounds like a kidney infection. I would wait a day or two if it gets worse go to the doctor. There's no hurry its not that serious.


lawechang
hey there, just get it checked out regardless. it might be nothing or something. its hard to diagnosis just online, and that area could be anything - but one of my friends had a similar type of pain and she had endometriosis. be careful and go see a doctor!


Toby
I can't stress this enough: You should get checked out by a doctor! If it is appendicitis and the appendix ruptures, it can be fatal! Do not fool around with something like that. However, it may also be a small cyst in your fallopian tube. When you ovulate, the egg passes the cyst and you feel sharp pain. Your best bet is to go to a doctor and let him/her run tests to rule out appendicitis.

it could be appendicitis and if you let it go it could rupture and then you will have more problems, serious problems...If i were you get it checked out.

I believe the first answer was incorrect. Your appendix is on the RIGHT side. If you suspect, either way, that that's what it is, do not wait for it to burst. Go to a doctor now.

Check your symptoms at WEBMD.com they are really good

This doesn't seem to be appendicitis from history. Appendicitis is featured with acute and sever pain, starts first near and around umbilicus, and then the site of pain shifts gradually to somewhere between umbilicus and right anterior superior iliac spine.( Make an imaginary line from your umbilicus to the bony prominence of pelvis on right side, if the site of pain and tenderness is somewhere on this line, then it can be appendicitis).
The other associated features with appendicitis are vomiting and fever. You don't seem to have any of these symptoms. And your pain is not sever enough. In appendicitis pain, patients have terrible pain.
So again from history, it doesn't seem to be appendicitis, still if you want to get sure, then you can consult a Doc, in case your pain gets worse.

if your doctor won't help, maybe someone at school could tell him you need to see a doctor. appendicitis is an inflamation of the appendix. it's a small organ attached to your large intestine right next to where it attaches to your small intestine in the lower right side of your body. It is best treated with antibiotics, and if that doesn't work then you have to have it removed with surgery. You do really need to see a doctor because if it bursts, it could kill you; especially if you are in as much pain as you say.

The guy who answered 1st is wrong. It's located on your right side. I had mine taken out years ago!

Fever? Nausea? Pain in right side? Press in and IF IT HURTS LIKE CRAZY WHEN YOU RELEASE GET TO THE HOSPITAL. Don't confuse with constipation and take a laxative!!


dixie58
i am not a doctor but it could be a cyst on your ovary,bladder infection,kidney infection etc. if you are running a fever you need to see a doctor as soon as possible if the pain becomes severe or a rapid temperature increase go to the hospital.good luck.

I have had exactly what you describe and it did not turn out to be appendicitis. It went away in the next day. But since I never discussed it with anyone (I should have) it is still a mystery what it was. All I am saying is that don't panic. Talk to your school nurse.

Sweetie, dont wait, if you have another relative, call them to take you to the ER. Sure it may be something else, but you are taking a chance that I sure wouldnt want my child, friend or anyone else to take.

AND Patients often have an elevated temperature, and there usually will be moderate to severe tenderness in the RIGHT lower abdomen

Maybe you need to go to the bathroom? (#2?)

You would be VERY sick if your appendix was inflamed.

If it was Appendicitis you wouldn't even be able to move because the pain would be so awful.

Does it hurt when you touch that area, or put pressure on it?
If so, then you really need to go to a doctor, or hospital! You dont want it to rupture, because you could bleed to death.


~*lil jordy*~
I had the exact same pains like 3 weeks ago. It was such a sharp pain on my lower back and front, but it was to one side, (the left). My father took me to the emergency room and it turned out to be a kidney stone. The pain I had sounds very similiar to what you have. You should go get a CAT scan.


jimponder
Here ya go: 2 inches to the right of your belly button, (look down at it) push in, then as you release, if you have a lot of pain, and you can't keep food down, then you have a bad appendix. Don't wait if you are having this pain. Get to an emergency room before it burst. You can die if it does.


justagrandma
If you have no fever and no tenderness on pressure its probably not appendicitis, it may be a kidney or bladder infection, or even just gas. If it hurts a lot tomorrow go to the school nurse. Pain is the body's way of saying somethings not right. If it gets worse before that or you run a fever with it, then its time to see a doctor right away.
Edit
The appendix is located on the lower right side of the abdomen, but the early pain of appendicitis can usually be found just to the left of the navel. As it gets worse the pain moves over to the right side. Very rarely is the appendix on the left side, that would be quite abnormal.


don't stop the music ♪
The symptoms of appendicitis vary. It can be hard to diagnosis appendicitis in young children, the elderly, and women of childbearing age.
Typically, the first symptom is pain around your navel. The pain initially may be vague, but becomes increasingly sharp and severe. You may have reduced appetite, nausea, vomiting, and a low-grade fever.
As the inflammation in the appendix increases, the pain tends to move into your right lower abdomen and focuses directly above the appendix at a place called McBurney's point.
If the appendix ruptures, the pain may lessen briefly and you may feel better. However, once peritonitis sets in, the pain worsens and you become sicker.
Abdominal pain may be worse when walking or coughing. You may prefer to lie still because sudden movement causes pain.
Later symptoms include:
Fever
Loss of appetite
Nausea
Vomiting
Constipation
Diarrhea
Chills and shaking

With appendicitis, pain increases when the abdomen is gently pressed and then the pressure is suddenly released. If peritonitis is present, touching the abdomen may cause a spasm of the abdominal muscles. A rectal examination may identify abdominal or pelvic pain on the right side of your body.

Doctors can usually diagnose appendicitis by your description of the symptoms, the physical exam, and laboratory tests alone. In some cases, additional tests may be needed. These may include:

Abdominal ultrasound
Abdominal CT scan
Diagnostic laparoscopy

I suggest telling your uncle if you have these symptoms and then see a doctor.
