Brief Answer:
Possible appendicitis. Other causes discussed

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.

The pain in the right lower abdomen is most commonly known to be due to appendix.
The person usually have associated features of fever and vomiting.
The treatment usually needs antibiotics and surgery once diagnosis is confirmed.

This is the most important cause of the pain located where you said.
There are other causes that include renal stones, infections, colitis being the other probable differential diagnosis.
Amongst ladies, gynecological conditions need to be considered as well.

You need to be examined by the surgeon for confirmation of appendicitis.If not appendix, other causes will need to be considered.

I suggest ultrasound of the abdomen.

Meanwhile, simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen may afford some relief.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible.
Feel free to contact us for more information as needed.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be gastritis

Detailed Answer:
hello.
Thanks for the response.
No, I dont think it can be gastritis.
The features of gastritis are usually located above the umbilicus.
So I think it is certainly not gastritis.
Best of luck.

My 40 yr. old husband has a large amount of blood in his urine. He has had bad back pain for over a year and usually winds up sleeping upright. Noone seems to know what is wrong with his back but he did have surgery to remove a kidney stone over a year ago. He has bloating in his upper chest and I am thinking its due to an ulcer. He never goes to a doctor and I am seriously worried. He wants to wait until after xmas to go to the dr., but I don t think he should. Can he afford to wait?
