Hello - hoping someone can help me. I am a 31 yr. old female. I have a tender area in my abdomen when pressing only. It is about 1" above the navel and about 3-4" across. I had the flu about a month ago and went to my dr. Much vomiting, etc. He happened to press this area and discovered it was sore at that time. He mentioned that sometimes appendicitis starts in the middle then moves down to the right, and if it got worse to go back. I thought it was just my stomach muscles from heaving, but he said "no" and that was it.
I was there last week for a refil on atenolol (for an arrhythmia, SVT) and he asked if my stomach was better and I said yes. Well in the car on the way home I pressed on it and it IS still sore! I'll make an appt. next week, but meanwhile I'm wondering what could this be? I had no idea it was still sore. I'm worried about this and am wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. What organs are there?
PS - I hope this is the right forum... Thank you in advance.
