hey...i'm 18 years old female and i need help figuring out what is wrong with me. i hope someone can help!
i've had this pain in my right lower side of my abdomen/stomach area. if you take your finger and measure aprox. an inch below your belly button to the right thats where it is. when i was about 14 or so i went to the hospital thinking it was appendicitis (my mom is a nurse so thats what she expected it was). well after a lot of tests we figured out thats not what it was and nothing was found. well after that happened it went away for a bit and about 2 years later it started bothering me again. well this time we decided to get my right ovary checked out just to be sure it wasn't in my ovary. got an untrasound, nothing found.
well ever since, i've had a little pain but nothing too serious, but the last 3-4 weeks this pain has increased. i can't figure out what it is and no one will give me an answer. i have a doctors appointment later this week but how am i going to be sure that THEY'LL know what it is after all i've been through?
can someone PLEASE help me?
to describe the pain, at times it is a dull ache, but if i've been sitting down for a while and get up and walk around it really really bothers me. also it hurts if i'm laying down on my back, almost like im stretching. there have been times when it has even gotten sharp. i really hope someone can help.....any answers would be greatly appriciated.
