Unbearable pain in RLQ when sitting, taking deep breath. Reason and cure?

Hi. I am a 41 yo female CT tech who is consquently working right now and in the past 2-3 hours have been experiencing sharp pain in my RLQ. It only seems to be extremely unbareable when I m sitting, breathe deep, or bend over witha patient. If I m up moving around it doesn t hurt to bad. But under 1 of those 3 conditions it could easily bring me to tears if I didn t move. Our ER doc is busy and I hate to bother him with this. I also hate to think of having an appy 1 week before vacation to Martha s Vineyard :) any words of encouragement? Victoria S.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
It is not there before, but hurting you only since 2 hours. It may be related with urinary tract infection, kidney stones, some gynic problem, or orthopedic problem. appendix, and nerve involve ment is not there because they will hurt in any position.
I advise you to consult a urologist for diagnosis and treatment. For the present antispasmodic may help you temporarily.Approach the doctor before it become continuous .
Wishing for quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
The cause for acute sudden onset pain in right lower quadrant of abdomen can range from mild problem like appendicitis and diverticulitis to serious problems like peritonitis and torsion of ovary.
Other causes could include acute uretric colic,ectopic pregnancy,pelvic inflammatory disease.
Since the pain could be due to some serious etiology,you must go to ER immediately and get investigated completely so that a proper treatment could be instituted.
Since treatment plan varies from medical to surgical,the identification of cause becomes very important.
