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.

have had pancreatitis off and on for over two years now...had gallbladder removed 3 years ago...sphinter of oddi disfunction, biliary diskenesia, i cannot eat without throwing up everytime, i have chronic diahrea, i was just admitted to the hospital with severe pain in my abdomen which was constant right side of my belly button and radiated to my right side and was burning. No fever. No white blood cell elevation..ct scan showed no bowel obstruction or inflammation and blood work showed no pancreatic elevation. They said nothing was wrong with me and sent me home...SOMETHING is wrong. I asked for a CT of my appendix and they did CT without contrast looking for kidney stones. No stones. Never redid CT for appendix. What should i do and what might this be?

I am 48 year old male. My wight is 60 kgs. I have no sugar or BP problem. recntly about a month back, I experienced pain in lower abdomine and pain in testicles after I passed urin. I could not pass urine that day for almost 6 hours and when I passed it was under pressure. The pain started after I passed urine. Though I suffered the pain for about an hour or so later it did not relapse. However I had some discomfor in my lower back and hip. I consulted a doc who suspected kidney stone. I took the medicine (homeo) prescribedby him. I also followed hios suggestion of drinking good amunt of water. Though the pain has completely dissapeared i some time do have a dull pain in the back and just above the testicles on the sides. It does not in any way affect my regualr work, but definitely a bit discomfortable. My question to you is 1. Does retaining urine under pressure in bladder cause renal stones. 2. What care shopuld I take ?

Hi, I am Dennis. I am under a GP care. I have well controlled high BP and my colest. levels are great. I do have several Gall stones but they mostly do not bother me. I have had several kidney stones in the past. I am currently 61 years old. I have an arthritis doctor as well for treatment of drymouth and I have osteo arth. in most of my joints for which I take no meds. I have a ruptured disk and premature spinal stenosis which was diagnosed by a back doctor by MRI. The stenosis makes my legs very weak when walking any distance and I cling to a grocery kart with much desire. But I have one other pain which scares me as it is intense and severe though short lived when it occures. I have had it for years. It occures usually when I bend over or twist around (as when in a car seat). It happens at night sometimes when I sit up or roll. It is almost predictable but I am obsessively cautious when I move. It feels like an ice pick stabbing me or even a tearing sensation usually right at the diaphram level or at the very bottom of my rib cage. More often on the left side, sometimes on the right. More lately I have bee hit with these pains a little high between the ribs. Am I having muscles ripping apart? The pain sometimes feels like a charlie horse which I have experienced very rarely in my legs. The pain may last only 2 or 3 seconds or it may last 10 or 12, but either way it forces me to hold my breath and not move except to stretch my body upward. My doctor says only that it is likely something muscular-skeletal, but that is as far as I get with this. I am confused about this and wonder if my muscles are falling apart. Do I have multiple hernias?

I've had a pain in my mid back, more towards the left. It feels like a muscle and sometimes is a burning pain that radiates to my stomach. What could this be?

doctor1 MD

My kidney stones do not bother me why would my doctor want me to get the shockwave procedure done .
