Appendicitis or IBS?! Help!

Hello all, here's my story, a few months ago, I had an HIV scare but found out recently I had nothing worry about and that Im ok, however, I have been in severe anxiety mode, having all sorts of stuff, until I got tested, such as; shortness of breath, heart palps, acid reflux, etc. and the list goes on. But, now, almost 3 days ago, I started having this lower right abdominal pain, not exactly in the appendix area but a little lower, Im scared as to know what this might be, and as a sort of hypochondriac, I have already imagined the worst case scenario in appendicitis, but thats unlikely due to no fever, no nausea, no constipation, no diarrhea, no pain or tenderness when i touch the area, no loss of apetite and I can freely walk and perform all physical activity with no pain, furthermore, I have found when I try not to think about it and am having some fun with my friends and such, it goes away, especially after a good nights sleep, its not untili 20 min after I wake up and im like: "Wow, my lower right ***. isnt hurting, and then magically it begins haha, and it also is not relieved during bowl movements, and to clarify its not really pain, its just weird pressure, like I have this uncomfortable awareness of this pressure in my abdomen, also once in a while, i have these unusual intestinal contractions, they arent painful, just scary. Might I also add, before the scare I was completely healthy!! So, what do you guys think?! IBS, Trapped gas, or just anxiety.?!?!? thanks and God Bless!!
