Question: stomach pain to the max
|red_gnome - Mon Jun 06, 2005 12:17 am||
hey, for the last 3 days i have had a major stomach ache. on the first day i was running to the bathroom ever 15 min or so, feeling very sick, tried, my stomach was in major pain. it hurt to stand up, lie down, wlak around, it just hurt. i thought it was just like a gas problem, but i took meds and it just did not get very much better. the next day i woke up feeling somewhatbetter, but still had some pain in my stomach plus a headache. i ended up working both days, and felt horible. and today. i have a major pain all over my stomach, mostly on my right lower side, but its still all over. also a slight headche that is getting worse, and my knee is acheing. i have no clue whats wrong with me. My throat is also burning a lot, but i don't know. i am just one major pain i guess. anyway. i really want to know whats wrong with me. i have not thrown up or anything, its just pain and more pain. anyone have any clue? My boyfriend thought it could have been dehydration, but i don't believe it is that. although i know i don't drink enough water, or eat enough full meals, i don't think it could be that. i think its worse, but i don't know.
i have been sexualy active, but this stomach pain has been going on before we even became that sexually active, so i know i could not be pregnet.
butif anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
i am a usually healthy 18 year old female.

Right lower quadrant pain can be appendicitis; are you running any fever? You need to get it checked immediately, a rupture can be deadly.
