Hi, im a 14 year old girl, i've had really bad right side pain basically since new years. Then, it was just an annoyance but its gradually gotten worse and worse.
The pain is in the lower right, and it gets very terrible at times, like theirs a knife in it.
About 4 weeks ago my mom took me to the doctor at the state health department. I saw the nurse practitioner, who drew blood, did urine tests, said everything was normal and to call again if i kept on and she would order a KUB. Well, low and behold it kept feeling worse, and when my mom called two days later she said she wanted us to come back in to see the doctor. So we drove through a snowstorm to be told that it was nothing to worry about and to take advil and hot baths.
We decided to take the doctors word for it but it's just kept feeling worse... my mom switched my primary care to my dad's doctor. She called trying for the soonest appointment but the doctor was out of town so we saw another doctor in that office.
She took labs and ordered an ultrasound. They found a tiny cyst on my LEFT side, so we scheduled an appointment for this past wednesday. The doctor said that the cyst was so tiny it shouldnt be causing this much pain especially on the right. He pressed on me, (hurt.) he pulled my leg up and turned it (HURT) then he tapped the bottom of my foot (hurt) and he pressed on my left side (HURT the right side.)
He sent us straight to the hospital for a CT. Little did i know it was a barium enema. I was in a world of pain becasue i felt the fluid hit the spot thats hurting and i was in severe pain the rest of the day. They sent us home and he called that evening saying the CT didnt help him any but when my mom told him about it hurting me when it hit that spot he got more concerned and said they were taking more steps. I went in yesterday and they took 4 tubes of blood, all came back normal. I have an appointment monday morning... Im not sure how much longer i can take this pain (its that bad.) Im behind on school (im homeschooled) and all ive done the past month is just lay around on the recliner. i have no life.
So my question is, could it be my appendix even though all tests are negative? Thanks.
