Hernia or appendix

Early 50 yr. old male in good health, not over weight.  Past few weeks any fried foods, or spicy foods, (last night even chicken and noodles), causes acid reflux, and a feeling of nausea.  Today, after a couple of glasses of milk and cashews, severe pain on right side of stomach.  Pain was like a cramp, then high temp., then nausea.  Symptoms continued for about half an hour.

Hi

Thanks for the post.

Yes, you are right! It could be appendix. The pain is in right lower abdomen in appendicitis. It could also be a case of severe acid reflux. Gall stones or inflammation of gallbladder too causes similar symptoms. The pain is in right upper abdomen in gallbladder problems. Chances of hernia are less. The only possibility of hernia is hiatal hernia where the stomach pushes up into chest cavity through diaphragm (the wall that separates the chest and abdominal cavity).

Please do not ignore your symptoms and consult your doctor. You may need to take a few tests like blood test to rule out infection and ultrasound.
It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining and various tests. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
