Could be several things ... I'd see a dr if I were you. It could be just an intestinal cramp, or it could be something else. I've had those too, and it's hard to sort out. Once it developed into appendicitis....!
Thanks. I've been having problems with I think my diaphragm too so maybe it is intestinal. When I bend over I feel like my colon kinks up or something and I have to quickly straighten back up again and I'll feel it relax. I'm assuming it's my diaphragm.
And I don't have to worry about appendicitis because I had my appendix out 4 years ago. One less thing to worry about!
I did have a colon resection almost 2 years because I had a constriction so maybe things are acting up again. It's just so hard to tell!
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Lower right abdomen pain is commonly due to appendicitis. The pain, can at times come and go and not give the classic picture. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women, ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry involvement, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. Right flank pain is generally due to kidney stones. All the conditions mentioned above can cause pain near the hip area on the abdominal side.
An ultrasound or CT scan of abdomen is definitely required.
Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Well, I've already had my appendix out so it can't be that. I was diagnosed with Crohns a couple of years ago but they said I was in remission after they removed the mass with the ulceration. Oh dear, I hope that doesn't mean the Crohns has returned. Sigh.
Thank you, doctor. I probably should see my GI doctor again even though I didn't want to as I'm sure he'll want to do another colonoscopy and it hasn't even been 2 years since my last one. Double sigh! Oh well, gotta do what we gotta do, right?
Thanks for the suggestions and help! I'll let you all know how it all pans out.
