Abdominal Pain with chills

When I got up yesterday morning, I had a sharp, mild to moderate pain in my right abdomen (definitely not muscular). I developed chills throughout the day, which were at their worst last night. I woke up this morning with no chills, but the pain is still there, no better, no worse. The pain is only bad enough to make me wince at its peak (mostly when I laugh or cough or breath in suddenly). If I push on the area I feel no pain. My family is insisting that I go get checked out, but it just doesn't seem necessary to me until the pain becomes more than a mild annoyance (or perhaps if my chills return). I just don't know. I've read a lot online, and everything points to my appendix. But, wouldn't the pain be much more severe and also have a quick onset (my brother in law had his removed, and his pain hit him suddenly without warning like a freight train; it was so bad it doubled him over). So, I'm thinking my problem can't be all that severe since the pain is moderate at best and has stayed static for two days...anybody have any experience on this or any input?

Re: Abdominal Pain with chills

I would agree with your family. Even if it is not your appendix, it could be something else in the intestines. (I had diverticulitis pains on the right side - not quite the appendix area, but right of center.)

And by chills, do you mean you are running a fever? If so, visiting the doctor is more of an urgency.

Thank you so much for answering. My chills were pretty intense, more so than one would expect for a fever of 99 or so...but no chills today

Re: Abdominal Pain with chills

Hi Sundance,
hope you went to the dr. My husband had chills and fevers for a week, we thought it was a virus and it turned out to be diverticulitis. The dr did a CT scan because they thought he had appendicitis. He had no pain but an acute inflammation in his abdomen. He had no symptoms but the chills and fever and only pain when the dr palpated his lower right abdomen. So, it can be many things but you need to see a dr. good luck.
