It sounds like it could be appendicitis

At your age would be common
I would go to ER now.

I'm sorry this is happening to you

Okay, is it normal for that pain to come and go though?
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

Yes, it is called a "colicky" pain.

That is typical of appendicitis.

It comes and goes

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
