Can pain from appendicitis move upward from lower, to navel, to upper abdomen?

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. There may be increased pain when you walk, preferring to lie still. ...Read more

When I press on right side of abdomen. I can feel a long thin tube type thing... Going from navel level to lower down what cud this be?

Constipation: If you have stool palpable on the right side of your abdomen, you are really plugged up all around your whole colon. That is very dangerous, as it is really tough to get things going when that bad. Would attempt a MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) clean out. Put a capful of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) in everything you drink over the weekend until you poop clear liquid. Recommend daily MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) after that, and/or Linzess is a great drug! ...Read more

Right groin pain and a lot of cramping in the lower ab area just above groin and 2 inches to the right of navel, what could that be? Echo abdomen ok
