Question: I have very light pain in my lower right side of the abdomen, just above the waist bone. The pain increases whenever I cough. Also whenever I do any cardio workouts in the Gym such as running on the treadmill , i feel some pain in my abdomen. Do i need to worry about this? What are the chances of appendicitis ? Or is there any other complication?

Brief Answer: Less likely to be appendicitis, if no other sympto Detailed Answer: Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear XXXXX, If the pain has been present for quite more than couple of days and there are no associated symptoms like nausea, loss of appetite and fever then it's unlikely to be appendicitis. You have just mentioned about pain as your complaint, duration not being mentioned. If you are having no other complaint especially loss of appetite then the portability of it being appendicitis is remote. If the pain still persists, I suggest you to see your Surgeon . Diagnosis of appendicitis is based on good clinical examination of the patient. I hope it helped. Wishing you a happy and healthy life. Take care Regards Dr Deepak Kishore Consultant Surgeon

What would cause someone to have a sour stomach (cramping, soft stools , frequent bowels) for over a week? It happens about every other week. I have difficulty sleeping and loss of appetite b/c of it. One result is weight loss . During this time, I can only eat foods like club crackers, baked potatoes, yellow gatorade, & sprite. I also get a little light headed. It is for a 33 year old female (not pregnant).

I thought it was over with by that point. I have now started having stomach problems like bloating gross feeling loss of appetite Gross feeling belching a lot and loose stools and weight loss because of the food issues. Some days are better than others but not well for 2 months now. I have gone to do blood work and came back regular and liver count was a little high because i was dehydrated from diahrrea earlier that day. Went to get ultrasound of my insides and everything came back normal. I dont know be but i am still not well. Also my anxiety levels are sky high and have had 2 panic attacks along with these issues.

Hi there, I was prescribed Trepiline 20 years ago, when I was diagnosed as anorexic. My dose is 75mg at night. I have had several relapses over the years, but am ok now. I m still on Trepiline (75mg) and I find I do well on it. My sister is concerned that such prolonged usage may have negative side effects and permanent damage (liver/kidneys, etc). Is it ok for me to still be taking Trepiline?
