If my right stomach is pressed it really hurts. but it won’t be long back it doesn’t hurt anymore, what’s wrong with this?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Appendicitis is inflammation that occurs in the appendix. The appendix is a small organ found in the lower right abdomen, which is attached to and connected to the large intestine. In some people it can be found in the lower left stomach, near the liver or near the stomach. The function of this organ is unknown. However, if there is inflammation, which is generally caused by accumulated stool, it will become a disease.
Symptoms that appear in this disease are:
1. Abdominal pain, initially felt around the navel then moving to the lower right abdomen and can spread to all parts of the stomach if the inflamed appendix bursts. Pain is felt intermittently, which is getting more frequent.
2. Nausea and vomiting
3. Constipation or diarrhea
This disease has symptoms similar to other stomach ailments, such as:
1. Twisted ovarian cyst
3. Urinary stones or ureterolithiasis
In order to make the diagnosis and rule out other diseases, I suggest that you should consult a general surgeon. In addition to conducting an interview about your complaint, the doctor will also perform a physical examination by pressing the lower right abdomen. In appendicitis, you will feel pain when pressing and when the pressure is released suddenly. The doctor will need a blood test to look for signs of infection, namely an increase in white blood cells. The doctor will also need an ultrasound examination to see the condition of the appendix, urinary tract and reproductive tract.
If there is a strong suspicion of appendicitis, an operation will be performed as soon as possible. To prevent the risk of appendicitis rupture.
What you can do is:
1. Immediately seek medical attention if the pain is getting stronger over time.
2. You can take Paracetamol to reduce fever and relieve mild abdominal pain which is usually caused by dysmenorrhea in women (painful menstruation).
So, hopefully it's useful.
