10 posts in this topic

For the past 9 months ive had chronic and sharp pain in my right lower abdomen and im starting to get really concerened, when the pain does go away its only for a few hours and then its back again :( . Its agrivated by exersize and isnt really aided by any pain killers that ive tried.. i dont want to take anything stronger and im unwilling to keep taking any kind of medication until i know what is wrong. Please help, any suggestions of what it could be would be really helpful.

P.S. Ive seen my GP twice as well as a peadiatric registra (who was frankly useless) and my GI and ive had an ultrasound which was clear

Hi Nikki,

Pain for that long really needs to be investigated further. The abdomen is such a big place that holds lots of organs, but off the top of my head, things that come to mind in the lower abdomen are intestinal issues which should have been covered by your GI doc. You could have a urinary tract infection, and if untreated could travel up to the kidneys. You also could have issues in your pelvis, e.g. with your ovaries, uterus, cervix, etc. Have you seen a GYN doc? If it were me, I would want an abdominal CAT scan. You could have a vascular problem too. Good luck - I hope you find some answers.

thankyou for you help. The problem with CAT scans is that the waiting list is about 8 months long for non-emergancy patients and i really dont know if i will be able to cope for that long. I havent seen a gyn doc but will seriously consider it. Thankyou! :)

I have the same problems!! Only thing is, I've had it since I was 15.. I'm 21 now. No one knows what it is.... :(

Wish I had something reassuring for you, but I don't even have it for myself.

What does your diet look like? Are there any foods that cause it to be worse or better?

I have been dealing with a similar pain for the past month or so and figured out that sugar and chocolate aggravate it. I suspect Candida overgrowth as I have other symptoms of that. Will be going to a competent Dr. in 2 weeks and hopefully get some answers/releif. 9 months or 6 years is a long time to deal with this kind of pain.

As a side I am convinced if I went to the hospital with these symptoms they would yank my appendix out. Just cutting chocolate out stopped the stabbing pains in the appendix area. :P

I have tried not eating sugar for a while, didn't seem to help too much. But, I didn't stop eating it for long.

I had my appendix removed about 5 years ago, but no relief.

I am also going to do a candida cleanse...

LET US KNOW IF YOU GET ANY ANSWERS!! :D :D

lower right pain is typical of Crohn's disease-- it's unlikely but not impossible to have both. Got any other symptoms that could be that? Do beans and whole grains make the pain worse?

Lower abdominal pain is classic for appendix problems. Usually people get acute appendicitis, but other people can have pain for years before the appendix causes severe pain just before it bursts. If your doc ruled out appendix problems, consider getting a stool test for bacteria, parasites and fungus (like candida).

I had a parasite called dientamoeba fragilis which infects the secum, which is right next to the appendix. I thought I was having appendicitis, but the pain came and went. D-frag pain felt like a charley horse (muscle cramp) in my lower right intestine. After my stool test showed I had dientamoeba fragilis, my doc treated that with Iodoquinol for about 5 weeks. Then I took high dose probiotics after that. The pain disappeared and my next stool test was negative for parasites, pathogenic bacteria and fungus.

That gives me hope. I feel like I have two ferrets playing around in my intestines most of the time after I eat. It doesn't cause pain often but there is a rumbling and bloated feeling.

Crohns, Celiac, as far as I can tell its all a manifestation of Gluten Intolerance. I don't see why you couldn't have both. It's funny because I was looking at cook books yesterday and flipped through a Chrons one for giggles. Most of the stuff in it contained wheat.

That cook book gets a giant FAIL. :blink:

I will definitely let everyone know how it goes at Doc Vikki's. I am very interested to know how out of balance my poor body is myself. And as much as I like ferrets I do not appreciate them using my innards as play tubes. :)
