Appendix unlikely: Usually chronic pain NOT appendix which if a source of right lower abdominal pain DOESN'T get better !!!!!! Chronic appendicitis RARE! The next exam you need is bowel related..(ileitis can present this way) Ask your Primary Care Provider who may recommend a Gastroenterologist. Hope this helps Dr Z
