 pottyandy - Mon Dec 03, 2007 5:55 am

Hello, im 16 male and have had a pain in my lower right ab for 6 days, its not constant and hasent gotten any worse.

I havent been sick and im eating normal, i went to the gym on day one so that could count.

Im scared of appendicitis, theres not much explanantion on the pain it is on websites, i mean over 6 days it would of put me in agony by now wouldnt it?

it only hurts when im walking about and doesnt always hurt. its like a prickly/stitch typeish pain and feels like its in my muscle its not like a dull ache or servere pain,

o- Had it 6 days
o- Not constant - only when walking about and not always hurts.
o- not intense or servere
o- went to the gym day 1
o- no sickness or eating problems
