    appendicitis?

    anybody had appendicitis? i think i might be getting it recently there was a night where i went overboard on the protein and the next day in my lower abdomen area next to my groin area on the right i started feeling really bad pain while i was driving. i thought it was my kidneys and because of my elevated BUN on my blood tests that's what i thought it was but, then i was told that if it's your kidneys the pain will come from your lower back. then i looked up where the appendix was online and that's the exact spot the pain is coming from. i haven't felt pain that bad as i did that day since but, i do still notice something there occasionally enough to where i think i need to get checked out.

    i dont know why it's happening now all of a sudden during my first blast, i've never had pain there in my life. is it somehow related to AAS? it didn't happen on TRT either but, after i started the blast. is it because of the amount of food i'm eating and maybe something is stuck in there? which doctor do I go to, to get it checked out? i'm getting kind of worried about what i'm reading online about it rupturing and sending bacteria and infection all through you and possibly death. do you just go to the hospital? should i try to wait until my blast is over? it will be over in about a month. from what i've been researching if you go to get your appendix removed you're going to be spending a few weeks recovering and you can't put unecessary strain on your body like exercising and i don't want to be out like that during my blast. as long as i'm not feeling sharp pain like that day should i just wait?

    From WebMD these are the causes:

    What Causes Appendicitis?

    Appendicitis occurs when the appendix becomes blocked, often by stool, a foreign body, or cancer. Blockage may also occur from infection, since the appendix swells in response to any infection in the body.

    These are the symptoms. Besides that one day of sharp pain, I have not had any of these other symptoms below:

    What Are the Symptoms of Appendicitis?

    The classic symptoms of appendicitis include:

    Dull pain near the navel or the upper abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen. This is usually the first sign. (THIS IS THE ONLY SYMPTOM I'VE HAD)
    Loss of appetite
    Nausea and/or vomiting soon after abdominal pain begins
    Abdominal swelling
    Fever of 99-102 degrees Fahrenheit
    Inability to pass gas
    Almost half the time, other symptoms of appendicitis appear, including:

    Dull or sharp pain anywhere in the upper or lower abdomen, back, or rectum
    Painful urination
    Vomiting that precedes the abdominal pain
    Severe cramps
    Constipation or diarrhea with gas
    If you have any of the mentioned symptoms, seek medical attention immediately since timely diagnosis and treatment is very important. Do not eat, drink, or use any pain remedies, antacids, laxatives, or heating pads, which can cause an inflamed appendix to rupture.

    On another site, I read something about scar tissue and appendicities being related but, I didn't understand is it scar tissue forming anywhere on your body or only in your appendix? Near my navel about 3-4 inches to the right is where I inject sub-q. Which is near where the pain is but, lower. I started thinking that maybe there's scar tissue forming there but, that doesn't sound plausible, does it? Should I not inject on that side anymore? For a while I was only injecting on that side, since I kind of have a scar or something on that area and so i don't have to measure 3-4 inches from my belly each time, I just know it's towards the right of that mark, so that's the reason i only went for that spot for a while.

    Go to your doc Bro & get that checked. No sense in messing around. Could also be abdominal strain/hernia ect.... or you could need to just take a big shit. Dont panic just get it checked.

    appendicitis?

    You would be puking your guts out pretty much non-stop. And normally you wouldn't be able to carry on for a day or more if it needed removal.

    I want to get checked out but, I can't figure out what kind of doc specializes in this, I tried googling but, couldn't figure it out. I know my GP won't have the necessary tools to do the check up like CT scan etc. and I was wanting to find a specialist so that I wouldn't end up wasting money on a GP visit just for him to tell me where to go but, I guess I may not have an option. I called a walk-in clinic and asked them and they couldn't even tell me which doc specializes in it, they told me that they could do blood tests but, not CT scan and would have to send me to the emergency room. So, I guess I have to go to the hospital for this?

    I have an appointment with a gastroenterologist at the end of the month, I wonder if they know about this? I guess when I go there to get checked out they could also find out if my appendix is having any issues?
