I just picked my son up from school with severe "stabbing"

Customer Question
stomach pain. He says it...
I just picked my son up from school with severe "stabbing" stomach pain. He says it hurts worst below his belly button, but also through his whole midsection. It feels better when he lays down, neither side hurts worse, not tender when I touch it, no fever (but he feels warm) he's pale and his teeth are chattering. Not constipated, normal bowel movement right after the pain started. Should I be concerned?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you should be.

Early symptoms of acute appendicitis can start around mid abdomen and then localizes to right lower side.

Given the severity of pain, he should be seen in the ER at least tonight.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
