This started in December of 2006 and takes place on the right side of my abdomen, a couple of inches below my belly button.
It's progressed to the point where my abdomen visibly expands on the right side (this started several weeks ago and was not painful at first - just weird) - today though, there was a sharp burning/tearing pain at the same time (thankfully, it only lasted a few minutes.)
I'm definitely not pregnant (it would be an immaculate conception if I was!) and it doesn't feel like gas...and I don't think appendicitis would take several months to progress...
Any thoughts? Thanks!
