| | ISB or Appendix?
I posted this on the Digestion board too. Several weeks ago I saw the GI doc for abdominal pains, nausea. Have had ulcers in the past. He gave me Protonix for the ucler. Pain below the breastbone is better. But, still have pains lower. Called and he gave Bentyl for IBS. I have taken meds as I should and added Metamucil wafers. Some pains are gone, but the one in my right side below rib cage. It is there almost all the time. I have changed my sleeping position too in hopes it was the problem. Today the pain is stronger. I am to see the doc again on 9/29. I don't know whether to call him or not. It has not been bad enough to go to ER but sometimes as been close to it. It is there all the time. If it were appendix, wouldn't there be fever?
