Appendicitis?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I woke up at 4AM this morning (roughly 10 hours ago) and all of a sudden started experiencing pain - at McBurney's point. I felt a little nauseous but no fever. The pain kept me up for 2 hours but I fell asleep as it started to feel less severe. Now it's 2PM and I still have this dull aching RLQ pain at McBurney's point. I have passed gas, I've had a bowel movement, I've been up and walking around, etc..... The pain isn't that severe anymore, just dull, and I don't have any other symptoms really, so I feel like it probably isn't appendicitis but I don't know ??? Obviously early diagnosis of appendicitis is important so that's why I'm concerned, plus I'm tired of the pain !!!!
