Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Started tonight about 3 hours ago when sitting. Immeditely went away when shifted left, at one point I had to actually stand up to relieve the pain. Lasted about 30 minutes and after standing for awhile went away. Now when sitting, the pain is just a dull throb. It does not radiate and is a sharp localized pain in the lower most part of the right quadrant.

Stool/urine has been normal. no tendernous upon palp. slight rebound throb. No lump/bulge. No nausea/vomitting/fever.

Thank you for the information.

The pain can be due to colonic spasm, inflammation of gut, muscle spasm or, urinary colic.

The other possibility is the appendicitis, though the history is not typical about it.

But it may present atypically also.

As you are feeling a dull throb & rebounding , you should have it checked up by doctor to rule out that possibility first.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
