Appendix or??

Posted , 2 users are following.

Past 4 days I've had intermittent pain on my right side(pretty much where the appendix lives). It's not unbearable, I feel fine-no other symptoms. No nausea, temp etc. I do suffer from IBS sometimes. Could it be that?

The pain sometimes goes to my hip and buttock too.

I'm a 35 year old female

    Did  you have any stomach pain prior to right side pain?

    I just had mine removed, and I didnt have nausea or fever, but a lot of stomach pain and pain where appendix is.

      Hi, only due to usual IBS rumblings. That pain is nearly alway relieved by a BM or wind(sorry!)

      The pain is still no worse, just every now and then I feel it...

      Well, if you get a CT Scan then they can tell right away if there is an issue or not.

      I would check it out for peace of mind.

      If you press on your appendix with your finger and it hurts, I would definately go the ER.
