Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Where does she feel the pain precisely in lower abdomen? right or left side?

Any tender point?

How are stool & urine?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 10 months ago.

Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.There can be urinary tract infection.

It can recur.

Appendicitis usually causes pain right lower abdomen.

There is usually a tender point there.

If the pain is not at that site, then it is unlikely to be appendicitis.

You can give tylenol.

If the symptoms continue, please get her an examination in urgent care.

I hope this information will be helpful.
