This is Dr. David
is this tummy pain right upper abdomen or right lower abdomen?
are you constipated? are you having regular bowel movements every day? are they hard? or large?
you have to be careful of ibuprofen which can upset your stomcah.
alcohol can upset your stomach and gall bladder as well? do you drink alcohol?
It's right lower... Just below my hip bone but my belly button side. I have gone to the toilet everyday fine. Maybe a little firmer that usual but not completely constipated. I don't drink alcohol no.
the appendix is there
and in some cases appendicitis inflammation of the appendix can start in the right lower quadrant.
appendicitis usually causes focal intense pain and nausea, and no bowel movements.
When I went to the hospital with it last year they said they couldn't see anything. I've felt sick but not been sick.
your little firmer stools could be causing discomfort there in the right quadrant as well.
if you feel sick or nauseous , you should go to the ER and get seen and examined again to make sure you don't have inflammation of your appendix.
Ok. If I leave it a couple more days to see if it will go away then go to my go is that ok?
that can be ok
hopefully your pain can get better
you can work on trying to soften your stools
by eating prunes or using stool softening pills (colace, docusate sodium)
and drinking more fluids and water
and eating more fiber.
which could help
I hope you feel better.
