Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Do you have any fevers, chills, diarrhea or nausea?
Thank you. XXXXX feel fine other than the stomach pain.
Is the pain constant or does it come and go?
it varies in intensity but has yet to go away completely.
Walking around seems to aggravate it
Okay, this may be an ovarian cyst, or it may be an appendicitis, it may also be a muscle tear or strain
I don't think it is a muscle strain, but I did consider the other two. The pain was the worst Thursday night and early Friday- wouldn't appendicitis have gotten worse?
It may get worse over time, it depends on how sever it is
SOmetimes they stay the same for a long time before they get worse
When it really flares- while walking home today, for example- my entire abdomen hurt intensely, extending almost up to my stomach. Is not concentrating on the right side only. Feels like I am carrying around a water balloon inside me- that keep filling up.
I see, how bad is the pain on a scale of 1-10?
That is the best way I can explain it. And a lot of pressure when sitting down.
at it's worst, I would say 7-8 (considering 10 to be disabling or excrutiating)
Does anything make the pain better?
Are you there?
Okay, it may be an ovarian cyst or an appendicitis
I haven't seen a "pattern" to it yet, to know what is triggering it.
I will see what happens over the next couple of days and if it doesn't go away, will see a doctor
I agree with that, but if you have any fevers or change in bowel habits, then you should see a doctor right away
ok- I assume that would indicate an infection, which isn't the case right now
Yes, that would indicate an infection
hoping it just goes away on its own : )
I hope so too
thanks for your help!
You're quite welcome
