A: i think you would feel sick if there was a problem with your appendix. it could be a cyst on your ovary or if it''s higher it could be an irritated inflamed gallblader, both should be sensitive to the touch if you press on them if ther is a problem. or it could be your a little constipated, a pulled muscle, or a minor hernia. talk to a doctor if it continues. appendicitis typically begins with a vague pain in the middle of the abdomen often near the naval(belly button) The pain slowly moves to the right lower abdomen (toward the right hip) over 24 hours. In the classic description, abdominal pain is accompanied with nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and fever. It sounds to me more like you have pulled muscle, or ligament strain Do you feel sick as well? The pain...


What is acute Gastroenteritis?

A: acute gastroenteritis could be more simply called a long, and potentially lethal bout of stomach flu. The most common symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain, because whatever causes the condition inflames the gastrointestinal tract. acute gastroenteritis is quite common among children, though it is certainly possible for adults to suffer from it as well. While most cases of gastroenteritis last a few days, acute gastroenteritis can last for weeks and months. Numerous things may cause acute gastroenteritis. Bacterial infection is frequently a factor, and infection by parasites like giardia can cause acute gastroenteritis to last for several weeks. Viruses...

What Is acute Abdomen?

A: acute abdomen refers to any sudden abdominal pain and swelling. The cause of an acute abdomen is often due to an infectious agent, an anatomical defect, or blood flow that has been cut off to part of the body, a condition called ischemia. Extreme pain in the abdomen should always be evaluated by medical professionals. The condition will often require emergency surgery to correct the cause of the abdominal pain.. After arriving at a hospital, a physician will perform tests to determine the cause of the abdominal pain. A scan of the abdominal area called a computerized tomography (CT) will likely be done immediately. The scan will show any areas of infection or if the intestines have become twisted, which may be the source of the pain. CT...



A: I consider any delay in surgical removal of an inflammed appendix is inexcusable. Doctors today are so fearful of trusting their own diagnosis that they run all sorts of unnecessary tests. Two hours and forty five minutes does not sound like a long delay if one is waiting for a roast to cook. But that is a long time in an appendix that is near to bursting. These doctor did malpractice, but whether or not you can win a lawsuit is a tough question. In my book, Identifying Medical Malpractice, I have section on appendicitis and in this section is a list of signs written by Sir Zachary Cope, The Early Diagnosis of the acute Abdomen, Oxford University Press, 1921. Dr. Cope lists signs in order of occurrence and he insists that surgery is the...

Lower right abdominal pain: appendicitis?

A: Appendix inflammation (appendicitis) is usually much more painful than simple abdominal discomfort. Unfortunately, all the diagnostic procedures you’ve done (an ultrasound, colonoscopy) can neither prove nor deny appendicitis. Diagnosis of acute appendicitis is clinical in nature and is made according to the symptoms and signs shown by the person experiencing the pain. Therefore, diagnosis of appendicitis remains very uncertain because many other abdominal disorders manifest the same symptoms (abdominal pain, temperature, vomiting, nausea etc.). Sometimes even healthy appendices are surgically removed or something else is found during the operation because of an...

Can appendicitis cause back pain? AKA What is wrong with me?

A: 1. doctor. just in case take care 2. Pain or discomfort down the course of the sciatic nerve should have given you a pretty good clue. Add to that the discomfort (pain) in the lower back when defecating. Also, the increased frequency... many clues there also. Seems you have been searching in the wrong places. Try looking under neurological. 3. Without a fever and acute pain in the abdomen (you say the pain is right side of right hip bone which isn''t in your abdomen) it isn''t likely appendicitis. Kidney stones will let you know they are there within 24hrs of first pain. They make you scream!! Most likely you are dealing with sciatic nerve damage, or lower back spasm/injury. This is treatable with anti-inflammatories, massage, and...


appendicitis and peristalsis

A: Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you. You want to know the cause of the pain in the abdomen that your sister experiences. appendicitis is inflammation of that part of the intestine called the appendix. This inflammation may be acute or chronic. Depending on the severity of the symptoms before the surgery, certain individuals may develop adhesions as a result of the formation of fibrous tissue (due to the inflammation). This fibrous tissue may bridge parts of the intestine and the abdomenal wall, so they may press over the intestines and cause the peristalsis to stop and initiate pain. If the lack of peristalsis is severe individuals may experience ileus, a condition which is quite serious and needs a surgery. Given the...
