For the past 2 stays Ive had a twinge (slight-moderate pain)

This answer was rated:

For the past 2 stays I've had a twinge (slight-moderate pain) in my lower right abdomen. It comes and goes throughout the day and lasts a few minutes at a time. I am not nauseous or having any bowel trouble. I feel fine otherwise, just had chicken and pasta for dinner. I just finished my period yesterday. I am a very anxious person, so I am panicking thinking its something horrible.... :-(
Hi. Where exactly is the twinge located and have you ever had it before?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Lower right abdomen, not that I can remember.

How have your bowel movements been?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

They are normal

OK--any actual tenderness there when you press in on the area?

OK. This isn't likely to be anything too serious but of course I can't be certain as to what's going on. Certainly not appendicitis and it doesn't sound like diverticulitis. Potentially it could be an ovarian cyst. If you hadn't just had your period I might consider an ectopic pregnancy. It could just be a mild stomach virus that will pass soon but since I can't examine you I suggest you see your doctor about it in the next few days.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX been panicking all day thinking it could be appendicitis. One last question, if thats ok... I heard lemon and water is good to clean you out, is this true?

It can be a good cleanser, yes. No--no way this is appendicitis
