Right Lower Abdo Pain.. Help!

Recommended Posts

I have been getting pain over my appendix/bowel area scince January and now im starting to get worried.

The pain can last for weeks at a time, duting which it is constant and sharp. When it does go its only for a few days at the most. Ive seen my GP who said they were chasing up my peadi/GI.... but my next appointment isnt until July (we got the letter yesterday). I have a 10 mile sponsered walk coming up next week, so pain management help would also be helpful because at the moment exersise is agony. :(

Additional Details

im a 15 year old female

I have hypercalcemia

I used to have (and may still have) anemia.

I was asymptomatic for coeliac and was diagnosed on bloods (the biopsy was clear)

Any suggestions on what this could be are gratefully accepted.

Im sorry. But why on earth would you want to "mask this pain" so you can go on that walk? You will just further injure your body. Pain is your body's way of telling you to "slow down", "rest", "take it easy". Pushing yourself physically beyond what your body allows might give you a mental high, but it is destroying the vessel that carries your brain around......

i dont want to mask the pain.. i just need help to deal with it so i can get back to being the active person i once was.. ive had 3 years of sitting out in gym class and its getting a little frustrating, the walk is important to me because its to help cancer research UK and the childrens hosptal of Wales. Also its a vital part of the duke of ednibrugh award which i am taking part in.. i know i seem stupid for putting my body through this but im tired of letting pain stop me from joining in with my freinds ... sorry if that sounds stuborn or irrational but ive been brought up to not let illness keep me from living. Apart from the walk the pain is starting to effect my sleep so i cant concentrate in school.

And it has nothing to do with 'a mental high'

Hi, Your pain sounds like what I was going through until I stopped eating casine. Once I started gluten-free/cf diet the pain went away and my energy went up. Good luck!

Did you figure this out yet? I have seen this problem posted in several places on the net. For me it was my Ileo Cecum valve being stuck open. Oddly enough it can happen from too much ruffage or too little ruffage. Google the Ileo Cecum Valve and let me know if you think this might be the problem. Mine seems good for the last few weeks.

I've had pain to my right side for years off and on. When I went gluten free it was better until I started eating ground flax seeds in my baked goods. Then the pain returned. I got flax seed out of my diet as well as gluten and have had no pain since.

Some likely culprits: an oavarin cyst / food intolerances / colon disease --- /

some of those symptoms do sound like me.. i actually have a really bad cld at the moment and i was accused of "having an attitude" yesterday. Thanks for the suggestion
