You need to go to the doctor right away.

This can be a bad appendix which needs to come out.

It would be unusual for it to last this long, but it can still be appendicitis and dangerous.

Bowel obstruction is possible.

Kidney infection is possible with these symptoms.

All dangerous possibilities.

You need an exam right now.
