Lower right abdominal pain hurts more when I exhale?

Lower right abdominal pain hurts more when I exhale?

May be serious: Pain in the right lower abdomen is one of the symptoms of appendicitis, although other things can cause it. If it changes with breathing it can be a sign of an irritated abdominal cavity (peritonitis), although it can also be muscular, hernia, other infection, etc. If it gets worse, and other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fever exist, be seen!

What can cause upper abdominal pain with nausea, trouble sleeping and walking, vomiting, decreased appetite, and lower right abdominal pain?

Dysautonomia: This is a relatively common condition and by far the commonest cause is poor diet. The lower part of the brain controls the organs of the body in performing their functions. Lousy diet affects these control mechanisms, particularly all the sweet stuff.

Should I go to the doctor if I have been having lower right abdominal pain for 3 days? The pain is dull and only hurt when I move it or touch it.

Should I go to the doctor if I have been having lower right abdominal pain for 3 days? The pain is dull and only hurt when I move it or touch it.

Yes, please: The pain you are describing may be due to many different problems, of which appendicitis is the most concerning. While most people would be quite ill 3 days into an episode of appendicitis, some cases can smolder & lead to worse problems left untreated. This is best sorted out by a face-to-face evaluation--please don't delay.

I'm having lower right abdominal pain. It's 4" below my belly button and 3" to the right of that. It hurts when I walk, sit, or put pressure on it.

Many possibilities: These symptoms can be associated with many different conditions, most not too serious. In young female, if it has been going on for some time (weeks-months), there is a high likelihood of being a gynecologic issue. If acute (couple of days or less) go to an ER. Otherwise, see your GYN.

Severe lower right abdominal pain that goes into back hurts with touch, pressure or when walking. Bowel and urine are normal?

Abd pain: This could possibly be related to appendicitis or a female reproductive organ/ovarian cyst issue. If the pain is that bad it might be best to get checked in an emergency room. I hope this helps.

Need doctor to check: Lower right abdominal pain can be from many things. Appendicitis is always a concern (pain usually worsens over time, with fever coming on). If one is constipated for several days, stool can back up all the way to the right side, and cause pain. A hernia, a twist in the bowel or an ovary problem can cause pain. Contact the doctor now or go to the E.R. (consider calling 911 if no ride to the E.R.).

Exam needed: With persistent right lower abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting and especially tenderness, appendicitis must be considered. I recommend that your physician examine you as soon as possible. An ovarian cause is possible but less likely.

See a G.I. doc: If you are having persistent right-sided lower abdominal pain, you should make an appointment to see a G.I. doctor ASAP. Why wait? If it is obvious that it is not going away, you should have it evaluated sooner rather than later.
