Just understand that I'm a hypochondriac and my wife's aunt just had appendicitis, so I of course start watching for symptoms like a silly man...

I was probably overreaching when painting a child's room the last two days, plus I do have Prostatitis at the moment. Anyway... I have a little pain mid belly and it also goes laterally to the side, mind you this is a fairly mild pain that doesn't stay around all the time. If I sit still it's not there, if I lay flat it's not there, if I breathe in to overflowing I feel a slight twinge, but that also moves my stomach muscles.

I'm just wondering, I don't have rebound pain, it hasn't interrupted my diet, I don't have nausea, it's not a "constant pain" and it's only been 2 days now. Would I be fairly doubled over and have a decent amount of pain with appendicitis? Like I say, I've still got a general feeling of discomfort from the Prostatitis as I get it under control, so maybe I'm just fishing for something else to be wrong?!?!

Re: Appendicitis?

It sorta sounds like transverse colon cramps and/or spasms associated with treating your prostatitis.

With no rebound pain it is not your appendix. The pain with appendix problems is pretty severe!!

Re: Appendicitis?

Oh, hey Harry, good to see you're still around!

Yeah, the wife and I have been also eating BADLY this week as the little ones are gone to gramma's for the week during Spring Break. I just ate a horribly bad for me lunch and had a weird "I'm not sure I feel good" feeling. I think I'm just eating badly.

I'll deal with it. I was just worried and trying to make sure I'm okay for our family vacation here in a few weeks. I suppose the best way to do that is the eat sensibly...thanks!
