Sharp shooting pain in stomach and appendix. Is it nerves?

I suddenly got a sharp almost electric shock like pain at both sides of the area around my stomach and appendix (where love handles should be) and a litle bit at the back part of both sides too. It felt like something with nerves maybe? My mother said it was because i ve been sitting for a few hours and i was on the computer too much. It repeated twice and i suddenly also couldn t breathe but maybe that part was because of fear.

Hi and welcomet to HCM,
It can be neuropathic pain due to abdominall wall or spine nerves impact. But also it sounds like ureteral or gallbladder colic which can be felt on this side too. If you feel it again you should do abdominal ultrasounds to rule out some intraabdominal pathology or inflammation. This kind of pain is often experienced and it shouldnt worry you if this last for second and doesnt repeat. WIsh you good health.
