Does Appendicitis Run In Families
Could apendicitis or peritonitis not hurt and the person just felt like liquid running through the right side of abdomen??
My dr 2 days ago run urine culture to check for bladder infection. No blood in urine. Dr sent me to ER to check for appenditicis. Ct scan normal, bloodwork normal, but had urine in blood 2 days later. Why does this happen? Do I actually have uti?

I am 17 year old and I am 5'6.Is there any chance I can grow. All my family members are tall. I do stretching and I run aslo..
Maybe, maybe not: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can yield a bone maturity. Most boys stop at 17. Stretches will not help. Balanced nutrition, rest and exercise allow you to reach your potential. ...Read more
I noticed im a pound heavier, a little more tired than usual. No other symptoms. Could this be hyopthyroidism? 22, healthy. Doesn't run in family
Yes, but...: Being a pound heavier today, and a little more tired today, is seen in everyone at one time or another. So, it could be normal, or could be part of any condition a person can think of.
