Re: Sharp localized pain in lower abdomen
There is alot of things the pain could be cause by from in that area-- not only the appendix but diverticular, colon infection, cramping and spasming in that area.
If it is the appendix-- a good test is to push slowly on the pain area while laying down-- then let go-- if it is the appendix -- the pain at that time will make you sit straight up. If it doesn't it's not your appendix.
I wish you well---Harry
