Why do I have a sharp stabbing like pain in my abdomen ?

I am 6 months pregnant with my first child, the past few days I have been experiencing a sharp stabbing like pain and then moves down to my vagina, although it only lasts for a few minutes it is extremely painful and makes it hard for me to even make a slight movement.. What may be the cause of this please help.

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Pain starting in the flank and moving down to the vulval region could be due to stone in the ureter. Any way you need to consult your obstetrician, who, if necessary will advise for an ultrasound scan and manage accordingly.

Hi my son is nearly 12 and was admitted into the Children s hospital with severe pain over the appendix area and slight pain in the central area of his chest. Eventually after 5 days they scanned him and saw his appendix was slightly inflamed and he ended up have it removed. He was discharged 4 days later still in pain. (he has a high pain threshold and is not a moaner ). we are now nearly 3 weeks post op and his pain is now in a band shape across the lower abdomen but is still very very painful when he moves. He is ok when still. However in the last two days he has increasingly complained of sharp pain initially around his heart but now feels like the pain is back in the middle of his breast bone... He is going to hospital for a scan tomorrow but doctors seem baffled and we are not getting any closer to sorting out why my son has this pain. he has had it a very long time now. He has also been having more flem than usual which has a slight brown tint to it?? any ideas?? thanks sarah

I ve been having random sudden pain in my abdomen for a couple years now, and it has slowly started getting worse. Sometimes feels like a sharp stabbing pain or menstrual cramps (but not menstrual related) and breathing becomes difficult. Don t think it s appendicitis but am wondering if anyone has any ideas. Hurts real bad. Please help.
