Any fever?

Where exactly is the pain located?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Yesterday I had a fever of 99.5 and it went up an hr later. The sharp pain is in the lower right end of my belly
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 6 months ago

Well part of this sounds like the flu

But the abdominal pain could be a viral enteritis or possibly diverticulitis--an infection and inflammation of a small pouch in your large bowel

Since I can't examine you you need to see your doctor to check this out with an exam, blood work and a ct scan of the abdomen

Please let me know if you need any more information
