Left sided abdominal pain, urinary infection. Painkillers not working. Ultrasound, blood test normal. Appendicitis?

Hi for the last 4 days I have had pain on the left side of my abdomen . My dr seems to believe it is a urinary infection as my bloods and ultra sound came back normal however the pain killers and antibiotics he has given me do not seem to be helping. Is there still a chance it is appendicitis due to the wrong side and length of time of pain?

chances of appendicitis are very low because normally appendix lies on right lower side of abdomen except in cases of situs inversus in which appendix lies on left side
u should go for urine examination to detect urinary infection because taking antibiotics without urine examination is not advised
