Appendicitis?? Anyone here ever had that?? Help!
I have had pain on my right side of my navel, above my pelvic bone for the past 3 days. It hurts when I cough, or if I move my waist at all, and when I sleep on my right side. I'm 26 years old, and have gotten something like this before, but never so severe or lasting so long. If I touch that area at all, it really hurts...
I don't have a fever (unless you call .2 degrees a fever, which I don't!) and my appetit is a little diminished, so I'm not nauseous.
I'm worried it *could* be appendicitis, but I don't know! I've looked online and I have some of the symptoms, but not all of them. I'm going away for the holidays, and so I don't want to go to a doctor right now - but will if anyone here has had this and insists I go - I hate doctors!
Can anyone help??
