I'm sixteen years old and since Saturday I have been having unexplained abdominal pain. I woke up late after staying up all night and the pain didn't start until after I drink a latte. At first I thought that the pain came from that considering that is what happens when I drink coffee sometimes. So for the rest of that day I had on and off stomach pain and it was temporarily relieved when I went to the bathroom, only it ended up coming back again.
I ended up going to sleep and my stomach felt fine, but when I woke up on Sunday, I still had pain. It did not feel like it could be relieved by going to the bathroom or something. It felt more like indigestion or wall abdominal pain. The pain was felt right above my belly button. At no point did I lose my appetite and I didn't lose my appetite on Saturday either. Though, I forgot to mention that on Saturday I did feel temporary nausea that ended up going away when I ate, but that was the only time I felt nauseous. On Sunday I ate normally but I still had bothersome stomach pain.
Things only got worse when I went to bed, and I began to feel hip pain on my right side. I immediately was scared that this was appendicitis, but if I told my parents that then they wouldn't believe me or they'd dismiss it as my anxiety. Usually they are right but I didn't know what else it could be from. Now it's Monday, I still have the indigestion pain, and when I move certain ways I can feel the hip pain still. I'm really worried and am at least going to try and convince my mom to call the doctor later. In the meantime, I'm hoping that anyone with a similar issue can tell me where this lasting pain is coming from. Notes: I have major health anxiety, though last time I went to the doctor and got my blood taken, my health was not in terrible condition. I went to the doctor September 25th. This pain started on October 14th.
