So, I've been having some throbbing pain on my lower right side for 5 days and it started around my belly button.The pain isn't that bad but it's getting worse and it's very uncomfortable.Sometimes I feel very dizzy and lightheaded even when I lay down.Could this be appendicitis?

I have a pain on the left side of my belly button. It is moving towards my belly button now and is hurting more. Last night, I had a very bad pain in my back, but it is gone now. I am not too hungry, I don't have a fever and I feel like vomiting. I don't know if I have appendicitis or not. Can someone please tell me?

I have just woke up at 5am with excruciating tummy pain on the right hand die of my belly button. The pain is making me feel sick and I have felt cold on and off, when I move it hurts but when im still it is still there but not as bad. It came on very quickly and I am so scared. Does this sound like my appendix?

I have been experiencing this weird pain for about a week now. I have been getting pain in my lower left side and it spreads out into my whole lower stomach. Mainly around my belly button. If I press down lightly on my left side when it hurts, it makes it hurt TREMENDOUSLY on my lower right side near my hip bone. I have also been having extreme fatigue, trouble sleeping, feeling extremely nauseated, a gurgly stomach, feeling like my food sits in my stomach, loss of appetite, constipation, and have been gassy. I have anxiety too, but I think this is actually real and not in my head. A couple of times, it would really hurt my stomach just to laugh or cough. I have never had such pain before. I thought it just might be my period. I dont know. Can someone tell me if I should see a doctor or go to the hospital? I dont know what to do! I thank anyone who gives me some answers on what this could be.

I have pain on the lower right side. I think it's my appendix, I have had a loss of appetite for a few days now. Do I have appendicitis?

I get sharp pains everywhere in my stomach. It's been happening for a few months now, it goes away for a few days and it comes back. I get it mostly when I eat. It feels better when I lay in a ball on my side but when my stomach is stretched out it hurts. Its difficult to pass gass and I feel nauseas when it hurts, is it appendicitis? Help!

For two months now, I've been having really sharp pain on my belly button and right side. From time to time I throw up and get fever. I always have chills and the pain is constant just sometimes gets really strong. It took my aunt and grandfather 6 months for the doctors to find appendicitis. So appendicitis runs in the family. But since the hospital did a blood test and it was clean they said it can't be appendicitis but when they touch my stomach they feel stiffness. Can it be chronic appendicitis??

Hi, so a few days ago I started having really bad pains in my lower right abdomen. It hurts when I press on it and when I remove the pressure. It also hurts really bad when I laugh I almost have to double over. The pain started after I fell pretty bad when I was snowboarding so I was wondering if it is appendicitis or just nothing... Please help and comment! Thanks
