What are the causes for having a mild throbbing pain which is bearable but discomforting ?

hello i am 15 and i have a mild throbbing pain, it is not unbearable and doesn t hurt really and i have had it since 11 pm last night, appendicitis doesnt seem to be on the agender as it is a MUCH worse pain(my grandfather and best mate both had it) they said it was the worst pain ever. I am not curling over every time it cramps and it is next to nothing but it is noticable and discomforting, i havent had bowel movement i would say in 20 hours now, and i do not feel sick, and i have kept appetite, though i have had nothing this morning, never the less i am very concerned what shall i do? also if it is doctor treatment i need i am screwed as i have my GCSE Exams in 8 days!?

I m a white male, age 38, and I ve been experiencing gradually worsening pain and discomfort in my left testicle for the last couple of weeks. It started off as a just an intermittent dull ache for the first couple of days (probably only a 2-3 at worse on the pain scale), to where it s now developed to a constant throbbing ache that sometimes reaches around a 5 or so. There are no noticeable changes in the pain level between resting, activity, standing, sitting, etc. I didn t notice anything upon doing a self-examination, but to be frank, I m no doctor and it s hard to know what I m looking or feeling for-my wife did the same thing, and she thought that one might be swollen, but is in the same boat as I am on medical expertise. Do you have any thoughts on what could be going on? Thanks so much for your time!

What could cause a very mild throbbing pain in the heart region, just left of center of chest. It throbs about as often my heartbeat and on a scale of 1-10 it is probably a 1-3. Sometimes it s a little sharper than others and has been occuring about 2 hours now. Could it be heartburn or gas? I ve never felt this exact mild pain before?

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?
