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.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My daughter is nine years old. She complains that her heart hurts or that it flutters or feels weird. Sometimes this is accompanied with vomiting and the shakes. Sometimes she says she feels like she can’t breathe right. She sweats a lot in her sleep or if she is active always seems to be a lot more than other kids. She is constantly thirsty. She has been to see a gastro, pulmonologist, and a cardiologist. She has been checked for asthma and was fine; they put her on an inhaler for when she is active. She had an EEG which was normal. She may have a mild reflux but not severe. She was also checked for Diabetes and came back negative. I feel like we are missing something help.

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
