no I have nothing going on except a little discomfort or very dull pain. I think if I use certain musles on my side that might put a little pressure on the area and the area just doesn't quite feel right no pain except I push in the area! then dull pain or discomfort yes I do have rumatiod arthriis and I am taking embral and also some simcor 500/20 and ARMOUR thyriod suppliment 60mg, asperin 81mg,some vitamins and IDORAL iodine suppliment

Hi,
Thanks for providing more information.

As per your description,chances of appendicitis are less.

Possible differential diagnosis of such pain in lower right side of abdomen may include Ureteric calculi,Muscloskeletal pain,Irritable Bowel syndrome.

As you are suffering from last week and it's dull pain so it's not an emergency so you can make an appointment with doctor.

In the meantime you can take Advil/Motrin for pain.

Also do massage with topical analgesic ointment.

Drink plenty of fluids.

 

 

Hope this helps.

you STILL didn't answer my question.it was the first one(?) if this is a apendix does this go bad suddinly turn into an emergency,as Ive heard the pain can send you to the hospital,or does an appendisitus happen slowly or can it happen either way? as I said I do not have a doctor at the monent AND I AM NOT RICH (emergency room/clinic/) I am poor

Expert:  Dr. Nitika replied 1 year ago.

Usually appendicitis present as severe pain and patients need hospitalisation in most cases.

Also usually there is nausea and vomiting.

Also it is more common in young males.

So if the pain is dull it would be a less likely differential diagnosis.
