Symptoms: have you already had your appendix removed?Is it recent? Is the pain intermittent and sometimes sharp? When you press the area and remove your had quickly is the pain worse? if you do the same on the opposite side as well? If you answered yes to all except the 1st question then you may have appendicitis. Visit your nearest Emergency room. they may check your ovaries as well to check for cysts.
