Hello! Im a 18 years old male, (height: 178 cm, weight: 55 kg or 121 lbs), and Im suffering from this rare pain. It's rare, because I don't have other symptons, just this pain: No diarrhea, no constipation, no blood in stool, no fever, no nausea. My pain is not very painful, just make me feel unconfortable: I have a permanent pain, which I can feel always, but's it's a kinda strain, dull pain. In a "pain-scale", 2 out of 10, but when I press my stomach (in the middle, near to my bellybutton, or in my right and left lumbar region) I feel a bit stronger pain, 5 out of 10, but it's not dull, it's like a more sharper pain, but not so bad. Sometimes ( once a month, or once in two months) I can feel a painfull cramp in my bowel, but it holds up to 5 minutes maximum. I also release more gas than I did in the past. I went to doctor, and I had Ultra-sound examination, Blood examination, and food-allergy test, but everything is normal. My doctor said that I ate too unhealthy (I eat too much sugar, and I eat a lot), so that's why I have these symptons. But I'am worrying, because I can feel these strain pain when im joggin, or when im standing for a while. I also can feel that my right lumbar region is a bit toughter than my left lumbar region, it's harder to press it. What do you think?

(Sorry for my bad english!)

Cheers!

    I would try eating little but often, and cook from fresh.  Avoid fatty, rich and spicy foods. Cut down on sugar. Try a food diary. I would have suggested asking your doctor about IBS, but you would have diarrhoea, loose, urgent stools or constipation along with your other symptoms and you say you haven't experienced this.  Is it possible you have experienced periods of bowel habit changes that have been too subtle to notice?

      Thanks for the quick answear! Yes, I already cutted down the sugar, and try to avoid fizzy drinks. No, I don't think so. Maybe it's because I eat not enough fruit and vegetable? (Fibers, vitamins, ect..) Im worrying that I may have rupture or a "Chronic Appendicitis"

      Chronic appendicitis tends to be come and go pain rather than being permanent and I think if you had a rupture you would be in a lot more pain.  If you had a ruptured appendix, this would be very serious.  Try diet change first and see what happens. If you still have pain, see your doctor.
