I'm so lost.

So the pain has been building all day. Typical. I get pain on the right side of my stomach /pelvic area and down my leg. Well it's been stabbing all day, when I cough it's like I'm getting punched, and now it's like that area is on fire. It hurts so bad. I can't sleep so it's like ugh. Any of ya'll go threw this? How do/did you deal with it?

Sounds like some nerve impingement. Have you had scans of your spine?

No, keep the faith and advocate for yourself. Rely on Primary care provider to coordinate referrals. If unhappy with your pcp, then change to one who can help you! Do not give up!

Have you had your appendix out? You may be having bouts of appendicitis. If you press on the area and then release, does it hurt more when you let go or press? If it hurts more upon release, I would go to the doctor. Just a suggestion based on where your pain is and how you describe it.

My thoughts are appendix issues too. If it worsens, or doesn't improve with great of ice, go to the ER. Praying for you. 🙏🌼

No I don't have my appendix. They have taken most everything they can take.

ok, I just wanted to make sure. I worked with a man who was having abdominal pain and it was really bad. He'd run fevers on and off and sometimes he'd walk bent over because the pain was so bad. I checked on him one day that he looked particularly bad and I told him to close his eyes, take a deep breath and relax and then tell me what hurt more. I pressed on his mid to lower right quadrant and then released it. He doubled over when I let go. I took him to the hospital and his appendix had ruptured and it was becoming gangrenous because he didn't take care of it. Could you be experiencing adhesions from your abdominal surgeries?? It's a common problem, unfortunately. You could also be dealing with an overgrowth of scar tissue that is irritating the nerves?? I hope you find the answers you need. Good luck. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Thank you. I will see if I can get to the bottom of it.
