I'm having pain in my right lower abdomen when I lay down. If I lay on my right side, the pain is too bad where I have to move. If I lay on my left side, the right side still hurts but not as bad. I'm fine when I lay on my back. It doesn't hurt while I'm up walking around unless I had a bad night. This has been going on for about a week now and the only sleep I get is when I sit in a chair.

I have not seen my doctor as of yet but intend too. I was attempting to see if it may considered severe enough to go elsewhere before I was able to get an appointment.
You need to see your doctor at the earliest to rule out appendicitis which should be operated at the earliest to prevent complications like generalised appendicits arising.Other diseases can also be looked for by your doctor after examining you and ordering tests as required.

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.
