Appendicitis or something else? I've had a tender lower abdomen since last night. While i'm worried that it's appendicitis, but it's tender in the lower left rather than the lower right. Could this be appendicitis, or something else?
The : The appendix is a normal outpouching from the large intestine, usually located on the right side. Diverticulosis is common condition, which are abnormal small outpouchings from the lining of the large intestine (more often found on the left side of the colon), caused by excessive straining while defecating, increasing the pressure in the colon which causes these pouches to form. In general, the appendix and diverticulosis do not cause symptoms unless they become infected. This usually occurs from blockage of the opening of the appendix or the diverticulum. While there are variations of the presentation of the symptoms of appendicitis, in general, the first symptom is often an aching pain that begins around your belly button (navel). The pain may be minor at first, but it becomes more sharp and severe. Your appetite will be reduced and you may have nausea, vomiting, and a low fever. As the swelling in the appendix increases, the pain will shift to your right lower abdomen, to a point right above the appendix (called mcburney's point). This most often occurs 12 to 24 hours after the illness starts. Over the next few hours, there may be increased pain when you walk, cough or move. You may prefer to lie still because sudden movement causes pain. As the infection worsens, the risk for your appendix ruptures, spilling the contents of the colon and infected appendix in to abdominal cavity leading to peritonitis, increasing the risk of complications and death. Diverticulitis can present with localized pain (usually to the left side), fever, diarrhea, but on occasion, if ruptures (as may be seen in appendicitis), can cause peritonitis and abscess formation. In mild cases, antibiotics can soothe the infection. However, if you develop more severe symptoms, or if you have repeated bouts of diverticulitis, you may need to have that segment of large intestine removed. In emergent situations, with abscess and advanced signs of infection, emergency surgery may necessitate removal of part of the large and small intestine and the need for a temporary ileostomy or colostomy. Although your presentation is not classical for appendicitis, there are many other causes of abdominal pain, if you are having worsening pain, you should be seen by a physician for additional testing, including blood work, urine testing, ultrasound or ct scan. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The : The classic symptoms of appendicitis involve pain in the right lower portion of the abdomen. If you draw a line between your belly button and the right hip bone, the appendix is most commonly located 2/3 of the way to the hip bone. The pain may start elsewhere in the abdomen at first, but if it become constant in this area, you might have appendicitis. It sounds from your description that this is more likely a hernia, as appendicitis does not cause bulging. Your symptoms may also be from a kidney stone. I would recommend seeing someone for your pain, if you have not already. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
