pains left and right side of stomach

im a 38 yr old female and for the last 5-6 mnths i have been have pain in my sides. this first started on my right side and i did think i was having a appendicitis attack, it was a very sharp pain which didnt last any more than a 6-7 min in length. it was about an 8/9 on the pain scale..it did subside, but keeps comng back from time to time but it is now on both sides so i do know it isnt appendix. i also have numbness &tingling in my left hand and numbness and tingling in my left foot. and find that im itchy often all over. there is no histor of kidney disease, nor am i diabetic. i am worried it could be my kidneys though. Any one else with similar symptoms that could giv me an idea??

Re: pains left and right side of stomach

The pain almost sounds like something called mittelschmerz. It's pain during ovulation. It's pretty darned intense, can be mistaken for appendicitis but goes away before you really have time to decide if a trip to the er is going to be necessary. It could also be nerve pain of some sort or even a gastrointestinal problem.

Numbness and tingling is caused by problems with sensory nerves. They can also cause itching. Lots of things can cause that kind of thing. Thyroid disorders can cause it as well as a host of other problems. You probably need a complete physical with a pelvic exam and a couple basic lab tests that include a cbc, metabolic panel and thyroid panel.

Pain can sometimes be hard to pin down but you really need to get it checked out.
