Chronic pain right side. Please Help
I been haveing pain for the last 2 weeks. Right side near near the belly button. It comes and goes, very annoying. It happened to me back in 2008 and I finally went to a doctor and he tested for H pylori which was negative, but he said I suffer from IBS due to stress possibly. Well, I have General Anxiety Disorder and also suffering from Panic Attacks. Althoght, I manage my symptoms without any anti-anxiety meds. But of course, I am a worry type of personality, so the daily stress is high.
My major concern if it is an appendicitis??? I have no fever, no naussia, no vommiting, just the pain. I did had few nights that i could not fall a sleep, but for most part during the night I have no pain. Pain comes and goes when I sit on the chair or on the sofa. So, basically the sitting position. When the latest stomach ache began two weeks ago, just before I recovered from a sever cold I had. Any chances that a bacteria got into my stomach because of the cold I had just prior to that???
Also, during and after eating, the pain increases. I drank alot of chamomile tea and pepermint tea, but they are not a big help. When touching my stomach, pressing it, I have no pain. The pain could be dull, burning, or like someone is pinching....
Look forward for your thoughts and experiences dealing with similar cases.
