Severe pain on right side. User Unknown 2 kids; Texas 1096 posts

ok. i know you're not doctors but sometimes we go through the same thing someone else is going through and it can help a bit for a sense of sanity while the person waits to be seen by a professional, to give them some pointersor maybe even get advice if they should go see one. i REALLY need some advice what to do becos most people..i have NO insurance so i need to know if YOU would go to the E.R. in my situation. not right now since the pain subsided cos i took 2 ibuprofen. the pain is still there but not severe. just an hr ago i was doing what i was doing and all of a sudden my right side, lower section.......started hurting severely to where i ran to my bed and start crying and leaning back becos i could not let my waist bend or it hurt right there on the right. i laid in bed for 10 mins before i could get up. so here are the symptoms

feeling moderate pain for the last week or so AFTER i ate food

felt the pain in every part of my abdomen

the pain is on right side sort of hip

some of the pain shot to my back behind the area, not into severe pain but light

hurt to breathe in

hurt to move

hurt to touch

have not had one normal stool in 7 days

so i researched it and things point to appendicitis, but the only thing that rules that out for me is the pain doesnt start at the belly button or near it. oh and one more thing, these weird pains have been building up so i quit drinking soda thinking it was something like that...i drank 5 cokes a day and havent had one in 3. i dont have health insurance or money to go see a dr. so what would you do?

Welll if you dont have health insurance a trip to the hospital will probably cost a lot of money , but from the sound of it I think you should go - you really cant diagnose yourself because then it can lead to something way worse . Then again just make a regular doctors appointment because hospitals ( at least mine ) dont do too much for you , and if you are going to pay from pocket you should get your moneys worth and a doctor that will take his time and hear you out .

no fever but ive had very lose stool for 7 days. Which might mean digestion something? if it comes back then i FOR SURE have something wrong. i just thought about this episode on dr g where this girl didnt know she was pregnant and died cos it burst in her falapian tube........i know i know, too much but what if?
