When I had my appendix out, Ithought it couldn’t be my appendix, cause it hurt enough. but it totally was.
Get it checked out.My husband said the same thing about getting his out, he made me go to the hospital, and now tells people he saved my life 🙂

Abdominal pain is one of those symptoms that pretty much forces any doctor or urgent care to send you to the ER. It could go so bad, so fast. Really, you should go in as soon as possible.

Go to ER. I’ve seen too many ruptured appendixes, too many complications from major gallstones, too many small bowel obstructions leading to tubes in unfun places and perforated intestines. Better safe than sorry.

@MrsSheldonCooper: Hope I’m not too late responding, but you gave me a de ja vu moment. I don’t want to scare you, but…. This EXACT thing happened to me 3 years ago. I had a sharp stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen, about where the appendix should be. It was on and off for about 24 hours, so I saw my primary care physician and had a CAT scan done to verify if it was appendicitis. Was not appendicitis, but worse. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease! It’s where your small intestines inflame so bad it basically closes a section of it. Time to time I get a flare up and it does the same thing, sharp throbbing pains that are on and off for about a day. There is no cure for this, I now take daily preventive medication and watch what I eat to keep it under control.
I sure pray that this is not what you have. I would not wish this on anyone. But it’s scary how much your story sounded like mine! I wish you a healthy recovery.

Definitely go to the ER. It could be your appendix.
I once had really bad lower back pain from a UTI. I had to go to the ER it was so painful. Strangely no burning while peeing or any of the other typical symptoms. They actually thought it was my appendix at first but turns out that was what it was.
Either way I’d go in.
