Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
Such a severe pain that has been worsening for the last 3 days requires immediate evaluation,
There can be many reasons for this pain, which cannot be confirmed without a physical examination
On the 'milder' end of the spectrum, ti could be a stomach bug
I was kind of figuring that but hoping it would subside and not require a trip to ER
while on the severe end it could be even a surgical condition like ovarian torsion
UTI, reproductive tract infection etc.
Is there an amount of time I can wait to see if it lessens? No uti
I've had UTI before and this isn't that... it seems to be localized to below belly button above bikini line
I am worried about possible serious problems like appendicitis, diverticulitis and colitis
Pelvic inflammatory disease can be another potentially tricky problem
I would honestly suggest a visit to the ER - better safe than sorry, in this situation
It could still be constipation, but given that you have had motions yesterday, and have taken a couple of Gas X this appears less likely ...
Isn't appendicitis on the right? I appreciate you being available and yes, I know you are right. My hubby is out of town and only home with my daughter, but if I must go, then I will.
Appendicitis can be retro cecal (behind the cecum) and can then present with a central below the belly button pain
Thank you Doctor...oh Lord, ugh. Okay, I'll go.
As I said you do not want to land up with a complicated problem in the hospital
All the best !
Let me know how it goes.....
And do leave a positive feedback !
Same to you again, thank you. XXXXX definitely will be happy to leave very positive fb :)
