on a scale of 1 to 10, where would you rate this pain?

are you having any fevers?
is there any nausea or vomiting?
do you still have your appendix?

4 - more discomfort than pain
1 bout vomiting 3 am weds (50+ hours ago)
yes
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

most likely a viral gastroenteritis (stomach flu) which should pass over the next 48 hours and would recommend a liquid diet for now.

However, if pain gets worse, or if you have more vomiting or blood in the stool, I would recommend being evaluated by a doctor to rule out appendcitis or colitis (infection of the colon)

Does that make sense?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
