Appendicitis

Evaluating abdominal pain is like solving a mystery. There are usually many different possibilities, which can be narrowed down by asking the right questions, doing a careful examination, performing simple blood tests+/- radiology tests. CONSTANT RLQ ABDOMINAL PAIN needs to be approached as "APPENDICITIS UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE" due to the risks of no treatment. Please see a doctor ASAP.

I'm constipated belly pain above the belly button sweet vagina smell?

Fix it

Constipation
If you have pain from constipation, fix the pain. You can try an enema, milk of magnesia, miralax. Most important to fixing constipation, however, is to drink more fluids and eat more fiber. I'm not sure what you were referring to by sweet vagina smell. The vagina shouldn't really smell... if it does, then you could have a bacterial infection and that is something nurse or doctor can help you w

What should I do about my belly pain? I could feel a lump in my stomach just to the right below my belly button. I can no longer feel it and i have this horrible stomach pain in that area. It was just to the touch before , but now it is constant. My bl

You

You are describing pain where people with appendicitis localize their symptoms. If you were seen early on in the process, a CT and blood count could both miss the diagnosis. Since you posted your question 3 days ago, I assume things have gotten worse if you have appendicitis. Sometimes the appendix is located posteriorly behind the cecum and a ruptured appendix seals off creating an abscess. Patients with retrocecal appendicitis are often difficult to diagnose and the diagnosis is missed on the initial evaluation. If you are still having pain, you need to be re-evaluated. If examination is suggestive of a surgical abdomen, you should have exploratory surgery regardless of the CT results. Physicians have become too dependent on imaging results and surgeons may wait too long to go in, resulting in a more complicated post surgical course and more morbidity.

I have belly pain to the right of myh belly button since I had my colostomy takedown Ct Scan showed some abcess or micro leak in the colon repair. Colon has been repaired since 7/11 and about every two months I get extreme pain low fever in that area. I

Uncertain

Colostomy
If your CT scan showed a colon leak after the colostomy take down surgery, you would need to see your surgeon to determine the clinical significance of the x-ray findings. Some degree of pain can be post-operative healing, but a chronic low low grade infection could cause pain too. Not all radiology findings are always meaningful, but also should not ignore until you are seen by your surgeon.

Sometimes I feel like there is a lump on my throat and I have abdominal discomfort. It is not painful but it feels like I'm starving. Is this serious?

Could be reflux

Neck-throat
A persistent feeling of a 'lump in the throat' is usually due to reflux of acid. It might also be due to anxiety or other factors. The combination of this with abdominal discomfort and a hungry feeling might further suggest reflux or possibly an ulcer. If this is a frequent feeling, I would see a gastroenterologist.

Dr. Ryan Phasouk answered:

I'm having abdominal discomfort, frequent but not painful urination, I'm cold all the time and I feel slightly feverish at times. What's wrong?

UTI symptoms

Urination
You are describing symptoms of a UTI or "urinary tract infection". Those symptoms can be, but not limited to: frequency, urgency, dysuria, hematuria, oliguria, fever, chills, lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, or fatigue. They are more common in women than in men and generally require evaluation by a medical provider and treatment with an antibiotic.

Dr. James Kufdakis answered:

Had minor belly pain a few hours ago. Now it feels like someone is stabbing me in the lower right abdomen and I have a fever of 101. Possible causes?

See your DOC

Fever
You may just be having a run of the mill G-I viral infection. However, if the pain is localizing to the right lower abdominal quadrant you have to consider acute appendicitis. I recommend getting to an Urgent care center or an ER unless you can get in to see your own Doc very quickly.
