I'm really hoping someone can help or give me some advise.
So i have been experiencing right sided abdominal pain since June 2018, i have had numerous amounts of blood tests, 2 stool samples (the first one came back slightly elevated and the second one came back normal) i have had an abdominal ultrasound which showed i have a tiny polyp on my gallbladder and polycystic ovaries (one doctor actually told me my results said i have features of polycystic ovaries and another told me i actually have polycystic ovaries so i'm not entirely sure whats going on there)
I have of course asked the question if this could be appendicitis because of the location of the pain to which i was told "if it was appendicitis you would of known about it by now and you would experience vomiting and other symptoms".
So over the weekend the pain got the worst it has been so i took myself to my local a&e i had my blood pressure taken, temperature and oxygen levels which all came back normal and the doctor examined my stomach, when he pushed on the area where the pain is, it hurt a lot but i was told i am not an emergency and to go back to my GP. I went to my GP this morning and i have been referred to the gynecologist...
I will now explain where the pain is.
It is not an agonizing pain, its bareable and doesn't usually stop me doing my normal daily routine it is not constant it comes and goes and i could go up to a week without it but when it returns i could have it for days on end or for hours at a time. The pain is located on my right side, next to my belly button the pain feels sometimes like a burning feeling or a niggling pain sometimes goes into the right side of my back or into my hip but its always on the right no where else.
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this, i am 22 year old female and this is getting be down so much you wouldn't believe. I have a wedding this coming Friday 9th November 2018 and it is giving me anxiety not knowing whether the pain will be there on the day or not. (I do suffer greatly with anxiety/health anxiety so you can imagine how this is making me feel)
Any advise would be appreciated.
