Couldn't find what you looking for?


I have a sharp pain in my lower right area of the abdomen and towards the center. When I lay down flat on my back with my knees up it doesn't hurt, but any movement from this position is excruciating. I haven't thrown up but I've felt nauseous in waves, I only have a slight temperature(normal-100.3), and this has been going on for about 15 hours now nonstop, I don't have all the symptoms of appendicitis, but I have no clue what else it could be. Anyone know anything that could help?
