stinging pain
« on: October 10, 2011, 09:08:53 AM »

Hi, just thought that it may be interesting to ask. Has anyone had any trouble with a stinging pain in their side. Mine is on the right side . Every so often through out the day i have this stinging, rather sickly pain in my right side. It comes on for a few seconds then subsides. My son stumbled and put his hand out to save himself pressing on the area last night and it hurt like hell. Soon subsided though. I went to the doctor fri and she was not sure what it was. She said it could be the early start of appendisitis, or a cyst on my ovary, which was my suggestion as I was told that I had one 10 years ago when I was pregnant. It used to sting around the time of my period. But well into meno now and not had a period for a year. I have to go back to doctor tommorow as may need a scan. This meno thing is so confusing :-\ Has you dead and dying one minute and then feeling ok the next. Mind you, the ok bit is gone in a flash  ??? lol

Wrong place for appendicitis?   Get a scan!

Dear CLKD, I dont think for one minute that its appendicitis but, your appendix is on  the right side of your abdomen. Thankyou for your reply.

Hope the scan shows up the problem Alexia.  Part of the bowel is located in that area too, so definitely wise to get it sorted out.

Thanks.  I was the 'wrong' age for appendicitis so they kept me under observation for 18 hours ........  ::)

Could your stinging pain be ovulation?

I too have somthing similar....... I just started a new post.

For about 2 weeks I have this nawing burning pain to the right of my belly button and just a little lower. It is increasing but cant get to see doc until Fri.

I have also had very soft stools first thing every morning for about 2/3 months but put down to IBS but this localised pain feels like somthing is wrong.

Any ideas???? to high for apendix
