8yrchild, intermittent lower right quadrant pain, sluggish, off food, slight temp 37.2.no vomiting, diarrhoea, slight constipation, pain started 12 hrs ago?

Physician assess: Because of the position of the pain and the presence of slight fever he/she should be examined for the possibility of appendicitis. Twisting of an ovary would be another concern if your child is a female. Poor appetite and sluggish behavior also fit with appendicitis. Have your child seen by your MD or in the ER if more quickly available. Read more

Right lower quadrant pain. Is it a cyst or could this be from ovulation?

However, pain that lasts is more likely to be something else, possibly a cyst, pregnancy, or even appendicitis. Read more
