Topic: Lower right abdominal pain?
November 17, 2019 / By Tracy Question:
I've been having pain in my lower right abdomen for a couple days now and I have no clue what's going on. It feels like I exercised that area too much, but I haven't exercised in forever. Also, I just started my period today after 2 months, but I have never been sexually active. It hurts when I move too.

First things first:
1) Do you have a fever of 99 or more?
2) Is the pain getting worse or staying constant?
3) Did the pain start after lifting something?
4) Is this pain severe?
If you answer yes to either 1 or 4, please contact your doctor immediately and ask their advice as severe pain needs to be addressed immediately especially in that region as acute appendicitis generally causes pain there and a temperature is usually a good gauge at telling you something is wrong (not always serious but a good indicator that you need to see a doctor)
Feel better soon!!! :)
Functional Ovarian Cysts - Symptoms
Functional ovarian cysts usually are harmless, do not cause symptoms, and go away without treatment. Ovarian cysts are often discovered during a routine pelvic exam.
The larger the ovarian cyst is, the more likely it is to cause symptoms. When symptoms occur, they may include:
* Frequent urination, if a large cyst is pressing against your bladder.
* Abdominal pain.
* Menstrual period changes.
* Weight gain.
More severe symptoms may develop if the cyst has twisted (torsion), is bleeding, or has ruptured. See your doctor immediately if you have any of the following pain, shock, or bleeding symptoms:
* Sudden, severe abdominal or pelvic pain
* Nausea and vomiting
* Sudden faintness, dizziness, and weakness
* Vaginal bleeding or symptoms of shock from heavy bleeding (hemorrhage)
There are many other conditions that cause signs or symptoms of a functional ovarian cyst. This is why it's important to have any unusual pelvic symptoms checked and to have regular annual pelvic exams.
The main symptom of appendicitis is belly (abdominal) pain. The pain can feel like indigestion or like you need to have a bowel movement or pass gas. Many people feel the first pain near the belly button. Then it moves to the lower right side of the belly. But the pain can be in different parts of your belly or even on your side. The pain may get worse if you move, walk, or cough. You may also have a fever or feel sick to your stomach.
Many people who have had appendicitis say the pain is hard to describe. It may not feel like any pain you have had before. It may not even be a very bad pain, but you may feel like something is wrong. If you have moderate belly pain that does not go away after 4 hours, call your doctor. If you have severe belly pain, call your doctor right away.
You may have appendicitis if:
* You have pain in your belly. The pain may begin around your belly button.
* The pain in your belly gets stronger and moves below your belly button on your right side (the lower right quadrant). This is the most common place to feel pain when you have appendicitis.
* The pain does not go away and gets worse when you move, walk, or cough.
* You have pain in any part of your belly or on your side.
* You feel nauseated or throw up a few times. You also may not feel like eating.
* You have constipation, back pain, a slight fever, or a swollen abdomen.
When I was pregnant with my third child I, had lots of lower abdominal pain and was told that because it was my third pregnancy, as my body knew what to do, ie ligaments stretching etc, then this was happening faster. If you are really worried just keep on at the medical profession until they do something for you. Good luck and try not to worry too much.
This could be caused from your ovary. You could have a cyst on it causing you pain. Sometimes they dissolve themselves and the pain vanishes. If this pain keeps up go see your doctor you may need to have an ultra sound. Cocoa
