It may be something other than the two.


I had excruciating pain about a week ago- I couldnt move for about 30 mins because I had really bad cramps in my stomache. Ever since then, I have had nonstop pain (Not real painful but annoying- wont go away) in various areas but mainly in my lower left abdomen and right under my right ribcage.

I went to the ER this morning and they diagnosed me with cycsitis (A really bad UTI- bladder infection) Well I could have probably told them I had a UTI before they even started because I get them often!

They didnt go any further than a urinalysis. I think what happened was when they did a urinalysis and saw that I was possitive for white blood cells, they assumed that my adminal pain was from that.

Off all my UTI's (Which are many) I have NEVER had pain like this.



So my assumption- they thought- white blood cells, UTI, bladder pain. No need to look further.


From my symptoms do you really think all my pain is just from a UTI??

My husband thinks it may be appendicitis.
