I am a 21 year old female. For the past 2 years I have had pain in my lower right abdomen, almost close to the inside of my hip bone. It began like appendicitis, fever throwing up but the doctors couldnt see anything on ultrasound so they left it alone and called it a pulled muscle.
It started out aching (even into my back as would be if you were on your period), progressively it felt like it was burning me on the inside and as if an organ was being stretched out like a balloon. During these flair-ups it would start to growl only in that spot and if u felt my side it felt like air bubbles pushing out, especially when I inhaled. I was negative for Crohns, Celiac and cysts.
What I dont understand is how they found calcified stones in my appendix, removed it 11 months ago and am still having the same pain except that it doesnt growl anymore. Does anyone have an idea what this could be? Ive since been to another doctor and she put me on birth control 3 months ago to see if that would change anything but it hasnt. I'm at the end of my rope. I was so relieved when I had my appendix out b/c I thought it was over.
I dont know if my weight has anything to do with it but I'm 75lb, 4'9 tall. (have some issues with body image but im not bulimic or anything). Also some things that set it off is just the pressure on my stomach when im lying on my back, my clothes against it, if i even touch or rub the area, sometimes after a bm, coughing or sneezing feels like i move something out of place. I havent noticed anything relating to my diet.
Please if not advice, I hope to find someone who may be able to relate in some way; its very exhausting knowing theres an endless number of things it could be and that you may never get down to the bottom of it, or worse, that its all in your head!
Thanks so much! Take care x0x0
