    Hello Hear Me OUT. Make sure you have a good ER. I recently went to the ER with pain around the navel . It radiated down to my right lower abdomen. I was bend in half do to the pain , I was not able to walk straight. On the way to the ER every pump ,or curve was making the pain unbearable. Also the seatbelt that touched my lower belly set the pain of even worse. In the ER labs were drawn. After that a CT was performed. I had a slight elevation of the white blood cell count and the CT showed that the tip of the appendix was inflamed. After 4 hours of waiting for results I started shaking. The pain has become even worse. I don do to an old foot injury. While I was laying in the tub the pain came back. The vibration had set it off agin. I was bend in half not being able to walk . Luckily my husband was there. I went straight back to the ER , after testing for all kinds of other medical conditions that I could have had ,which came back negative I was ready to get discharged. While waiting on paperwork I had to go to the bathroom. On the way to the bathroom the pain escalated. I was released with the diagnosis of possible nerve pain. Again , pain around belly button radiating down to the lower right sight of the abdomen.
    Couple days later I saw my Dr. he performed an exam. After touching my appendix I got instantly dizzy , nauseated, I wasn't able to breath in or out without being in unbearable pain. Every slight movement was incredible painful. Again I was send home with the diagnosis cramping. Then I saw Gastroenterology , explained all of my symptoms . His comment was yep sounds like appendicitis.

    The comments section is kinda sad, all these people asking if their specific pain is appendicitis. If you've got severe pain and can't find an immediate cause for it, go to the hospital. If it continues for hours or days, go to the hospital. And to all the children in the comments - Tell your parents how you're feeling. They're not going to be angry with you.

    My right Ab gets bloated then I feel a stabbing pain on my right side. The pain comes and goes. It’s hard to use the bathroom and when I do it’s nothing serious. It’s a dull pain that never goes away. Sometimes the right side feels very tender and soar. I can go on with daily activities but that feeling never goes away can it be appendicitis?

    I had a pain right at the appendix. I have a mild fever too but no other symptoms. I took a peptobismul ultra and a pain killer Tylenol. It helped for a moment but not really. Is it a appendisite or the problem by indigestion or constipations. When do I need to see doc

    Hi Dr, for somebody else.(Female)..what I would like to know is if appendix pain can come and go over a long period seeing the pain is felt on the right side, this associated with divertiicuilitis which was diagnosed, or is appendix pain only one way to go once it start it can only get worse till it burst-?
    Note: (My appendic burst when I was 6 years old, I collapsed passed out, luckilly one of the doctors at local hospital identified it quickly , I was send to city hospital 100Km away , large operation then, spend 2 weeks with drip and 2x drain holes, then further 2 weeks to recover.)

    I started having pain in my left side that I thought was gas pain which later got excruciating. Then it moved to my right side. Doctor said it’s MOST LIKELY a bladder infection which isn’t very reassuring considering the most likely. I have no symptoms other than no appetite. Is it likely I have it?

    Thank you very much, very good video. But I suggest you to mute your mobile while filming (which is annoying and distracting). And also, I don't know what kind of audience you're trying to rich, but you might consider watching your language as well.

    Ive been having abdomen pain, starting just below my rib cage where I assume my pancreas is and down to below my navel. It doesn't hurt all the time. It will give me a sharp pain for a few minutes and then let up for a while. It's been two days. I've never had any surgeries, still have my appendix gall bladder and tonsils, and I'd like to keep it that way.

    i get the pain on the appendix area but it comes and goes sometimes it is there but sometimes it is no. when it comes i have to stop because it hinders my walking too sometimes. i assume i have gas or maybe i need to take a dump but its been going on for quite a long time.

    Am having problems with my belly. Am having horrible dull pain. It like someone squeezing my inside and twisting it. I have been up most of the night and am still in pain . I keep getting a fever and feeling so sick. The pain is across my upper belly button and middle. Have lost interest in food aswell as as soon food goes down it killing me and no matter if i stand or sit or lay down on my back or side it still killing me. I feel like am going to die. Is it appendix?

    So I’m here because I got checked for a kidney infection today and my labs for uti/kidney inf./pregnancy and chlamydia all came back negative and I am not constipated. I’ve had intense pelvic, back, and flank pain and where it’s most centralized is right at this point in the video. I’m so afraid of over exaggerating things that I can’t even express to my doctor how much things hurt but I’m still very afraid that it could be. What should I do?

    I'm late but PLEASE HELP!! it does not hurt when I move but when I'm laying down. Walking( unless on stairs) does not hurt. Sitting doesn't hurt. My belly button doesn't hurt. But when I take really deep breaths it hurts and when I move my right leg it hurts. Or when I rub my side it feels sore. Pain isn't bad though just kinda sore and ice packs help a little bit but the soreness comes back. I don't know if I should see a doctor or if I strained a muscle or if its growing pains

    Hey! Um, the right side of my lower abdomen started to hurt a bit, and then it was followed by mild chills and a little bit of nausea. I’m not sure if the chills and nausea was brought on by me worrying about the possibilities of the mild pain, or if I actually have appendicitis. The pain and nausea and chills all went away in like two minutes. Any idea on what might be going on??
