Anyone had appendicitis

Posted , 2 users are following.

It's like my worst fear may be happening and I can't control these thoughts of death ect like there has been loads of denies today aswell and I feel everything is adding up I started with bad cramps last night near my belly button after having pins and needles in my chest the pain in stomach started again and I kept saying to my partner what if it's my appendix he kept laughing going your silly you need a poo ect then tonight it got worse again as I was out drinking trying to put it down to other things I then got so bad I could no longer stand and went home I rang 111 who sent me to emergency doctors for him to see me for 10 minutes and then have a bed booked on surgical assessment ward for acute apendicis but now I am freaking as the doctor told me that they don't have a bed just yet and it's probably best to go get some sleep go in at 8 and my bed will be ready I now have the fear my apendix might burst obviously he can not 100% say it is my appendix but if it is and I can't get a bed until 8 I could end up dying im petrified and shaking and can not calm myself down im exhausted and my anxiety is on full force has anybody else had appendix out ??

    i dont know what to say besides my friend had similar problems. he had pain by belly button and was throwing up with super severe cramps and had to wait for his mom to get home to go to the emergency room. his appendix had burst and if he would have waited like 30 more minus or maby it was less he could have died i am not trying to worry you all i am saying is if u start throwing up and cramps get worse... go to the emergency room A.S.A.P

    I should of mentioned he did say I can go hospital now but I would be waiting probably for hous to get a bed and that means no sleep and that's why going home is best to actually get sleep also then my partner can get sleep as he has work in the morning and then the bed will be ready at 8 for definite

    i was trying to txt and call him and i couldent get ahold of him then my boyfriend (the one who was in hospital is our mutual friend) had told me he was close to death... i freaked out and walked out of room cuz i was crying with fear not helping that i have anxiaty..... i would not want that for your partener so all i suggest id if ANYTHING gets worse PLZ go to emergency room because i forgot who but someone in my family also almost dies from it because they have SUPER high pain tolerence and it was a long discomfort so luckily thry went to er and got told they needed imediat surgery... that was years ago. my friend though was like a year and a halve ago. be careful and dont under estimate the searousness of this. i hope it turns out to be nothing.

    Hi Steph,

    When my Hubby was young his pal was in agony and rolling on pavement

    so they sent for ambulance and he went to hospital and they told him he

    had trapped wind.  I am not saying you have this but it could be a nervous tum, etc it might be what you think but I hope by now you are

    feeling better so Good Luck xx

      Thanks winnie I haven't been right since and I honestly kept telling the doctors it wasn't my appendix as I was scared for the operation anyways I got sent home after not eating for 24 hours and bloods and xray was normal and told if any bleeding started to come back in. Today I woke up with what I can only describe panic attacks in my sleep ! And I was kind of hullcinating /dreaming whike awake I then got the worst stomach pain again and saw blood and freaked out a soon as this happened the belly ache cleared im not to sure whether or not it's my period sorry for TMI but maybe all along is was menstrual pain although I have never experienced pain like it I felt like I was in labour all over again first time doctors did more than I expected though so I have my faith back in them not once did anybody mention anxiety ect which was a relief to not just be pushed over and told im ok without checks xx
