I have abdominal pain, lower right side, about halfway between my navel and hip

Hi, I have abdominal pain , lower right side, about halfway between my navel and hip ( appendix I guess?) Also, I feel slight nausea , not very much - I haven t vomited or anything. Normal-ish bowel movement , slightly constipated. I don t have a fever but I do feel sick. The pain is not severe all the time, it is just a constant throbbing most of the time, I have to sleep on my back or opposite side otherwise it is uncomfortable. That said, the pain does sometimes get worse, it feels like a sharp stabbing pain, if I press on a certain spot on my stomach it is sore - the pain goes away after a while and it goes back to simply being a throbbing pain. I have been having this off and on for about six months, but the last week it has gotten worse. I have not thought much of it until now, since last year February I fractured/cracked two ribs, and I have had lots of chest/ abdomen pain because of that. This feels different though - the ribs were a surface pain whereas this feels like a deep pain , and besides this feels much lower in my abdomen. I am seeing my GP, earliest appointment I could get is only next week though. Any advice appreciated!

hello,
there are many causes of rt lower abdominal pain like-
Abdominal wall muscle strain
Appendicitis
Crohn's disease
Ileus
Mesenteric lymphadenitis
Kidney stone
Inguinal hernia
Femoral hernia
Intestinal obstruction
from your case it appears to be due to constipation or appendicitis or may b some stone related problem.it better to consult general surgeon and clear your doubt.if pain is not sever enough then u can delay 3 -4 days. if severe then consult as early as possible. take good amount of water. avoid junk and fatty food. take more fibres like green vegand fruits.take care

Abdominal pain and others I have quite painful abdominal pain in my right side between my hip and navel. It s mainly wheb ai walk.butbut is really bad. Also, ive had vagonal discharge for a few years now and my gynocologist said because im not sexually active there is no.obvious reason. He suggested an internal which i.refused. It happens everyday and is a yellowish colour. its not my bladder but im only 17. a few months ago i went in to the emergency department for severe abdominal pain. Because i had my period they reckoned it.was cysts bursting.on my ovaries. but no tests were done

I ve had abdominal pain for about 3 days now. The first day it felt like it was worst in the space between my ribs and navel then the second day it seemed to move into my lower left quadrant (from my perspective) Today is the 3rd day and it seems to be worst in the center under the navel. I ve also noticed today a mass/knot like thing on my pelvis, about two inches to the right (again my perspective) of my navel and 4-5 inches down. The mass seems globular in shape and is just under an inch in diameter. It s not sensitive to touch and it s difficult to locate it when I m sitting or laying down but when I stand it s very easy to find. I would describe the pain in my abdomen as achey or crampy and it was worst the first day. It seems to be worse at night and I feel like the pain is gone etirely when I first wake up but then within an hour it slowly starts coming back. Certain movements that put more strain on my abdomen seem to make it hurt more as well as touch. What could this be?

lower left abdominal pain in girls (15) I had this pain this morning, like a sharp pain on my left side, between my navel and hip bone. It only lasted for about five minutes, then went away, though it scared me some. I havn t had my period yet this month, but I don t get cramps from it anyways. Also, I ve been experiencing pounding headaches the past couple days.

Hi. I have had nausea (no vomiting), diarrhea, and excessive bloating along with burps that taste/smell like sulfur. This has been going on for 3 days. I had this same thing except with occasional vomiting about a month ago. In that case it would last 24 hours, stop for about 48 hours, begin again, then stop... Eventually I went to the ED and got IV nausea meds and fluid. This stopped it, but now it has started again. What can I do to stop this without going to the hospital again?

I was discharged from a hospital after an 8 day stay for an esophageal tear on Tuesday. I did not require surgery....instead it was 7 days of no food or liquids orally, 2 broad spectrum IV antibiotics, saline, and Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium as my electrolytes were very low as a result of dehydration. I had vomited for a 20 hour period. The rupture healed nicely on its own. Morphine for pain and something for the chronic nausea. I am home now, but not really feeling better. I still feel nauseous (the smell of food can be triggering as can movement) I have vomited twice after a spell of uncontrollable shaking, followed by vomiting and then profuse sweating. I think one episode was a gall bladder attack since I have a history. But, it happened again last night. My stomach in general is bothering me (bloated, gassy, achy). I am on a liquid diet, but I am struggling even with that. I also continue to feel very weak and my mood is low. Thoughts?

yes, I had a colonoscopy followed up by a barium and was diagnosed with dirvirtulosis . I believe this is a pouch in the colon. At present I have had diahrea for 5 days and my family doctor said it was dirvirticulosis. However I have not had any pain or vomiting. I have reflux to which I take Losec , which I know can cause some diahrea. He put me on antibiotics . what should my next step be?. I watch my diet and in the past have had regular bms sometimes 3 a day
