Appendicitis is unlikely, but there is such a thing as chronic appendicitis.
May need a ct scan to find out. Check with your doctor.

Don't agree with chronic appendicitis. If no signs of inflammation on imaging then no appendicitis.

I took out an inflamed appendix this week-chronic appendicitis diagnosed with a ct scan. Pain for months. Uncommon, but possible!
