Painful stomach, stinging sensation, hunger pain. Appendicitis. Suggest?

What are the symptoms for appendicitis? I've been having this weird pain in my stomach, kind of like needles being stuck into me, but it spread down to my lower area. I was told that it was just hunger pains, so I ate something, felt better, and now it's back. Also, whenever I bend down my lower part hurts on my right side. Is it possible I might have appendicitis? What could be the problem?

Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have fever/ vomiting along with mentioned symptoms?
With the available described symptoms, there could be possibility of hunger pains more but appendicitis must be ruled out.
Relief of abdominal pain after eating suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging, x ray abdomen, serum amylase and urine routine microscopy.
You should also go for endoscopy to rule out gastric ulcers. Gastric ulcers gets relief after taking meals.
Meanwhile, you should also take proton pump inhibitors along with antacids.
Treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
If ultrasound imaging is found to be normal then you should take normal healthy diet.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Welcome to HCM.
WEll, symptoms you are mentioning are not of appendicitis but rather suggestive of
Acid peptic disease which is easily curable....
