Hi
Welcome to health care magic
     appendicitis & infertility have no relation at all .Appendicitis don`t play any role in causing infertility.So get investigated to find the right reason & get it treated.Frustration is no solution/cure for infertility,it is right treatment that will help.

I have been having stomach issues for several weeks now. I initially went to a Emergent Care clinic when the pain started. They referred me to a GI specialist. I wasn t able to get in to see the GI specialist for 2 weeks and when I did, after examination they recommended both a colonoscopy & endoscopy which is not scheduled for another couple of weeks. I asked if they were going to give me a scan to rule out anything before the endoscopies and he said he didn t want to subject me to unnecessary radiation if it can be diagnosed with a endoscopy. But that is still several weeks away. I am in a lot of pain, at first it was kind of all over my stomach, then in the center, now localized to the right side. I am not vomiting, but have some acid reflux, gas, and several loose stools and diarrhea each day. The pain is what concerns me as it is sharp shooting and most often right after I eat, but sometimes all the time. After reading some of the symptoms I am concerned about appendicitis. My symptoms started weeks ago. Have they been going on to long to be related to that?

My 22 year old grand daughter has been dealing with constipation since she was a baby. She is a very healthy eater, juicing ; eating good balanced meals.and she is athletic. She just had blood work and a cat scan to rule out appendicitis or kidney stones since she has been experiencing pain on her left side through to the back. The scan ruled out them out, however it shows extreme backup in her intestines. Her doctor suggests she be tested for ciliac disease. Is there anything else she could try before going through any more testing?
