appendicitis?

Posted by Mike on October 17, 2001 at 23:10:10:

My 14 year old daughter is complaining that she is getting sharp pains on the right side of her lower abdomen. My first thought was that it might be appendicitis but she is not vomiting and does not have a fever (which are the other symptoms besides pain that normally accompany appendicitis). The pain comes and goes throughout the day, it is not constant. Any ideas?

It could be related to ovulation, which can be painful on some cycles. This happened to me a few times, it can really hurt in the area of one of the ovaries. But you didn't mention how long it has been going on?

Hi, Mike.

Listen to kmd.

Much more has to be known to have any idea what to say. ANY pain in this area can be anything from mittleschmertz to kidney stone, to incompetent iliocecal valve to appendicitis to a muscle spasm, etc.

Hi Dr. Stoll. What do you mean by an imcompetent iliocecal valve?

I agree with kmd. I have experienced the same thing (and as we know, ovulation occurs only some months, so it wouldnt be every month) it scared the heck out me! I thought I had appendicitis too! It was VERY painful and lasted for two or so days.

Just a thought.

Good luck!

The colon and the small intestine come together in that area. If she is having chronic gas, it would most likely cause pain in this area. I have also had pain in this area that I had a ultrasound to look at the appendix. It turned out to be a small cyst on my ovary that just went away on it's own. Ovulation is also a possibility.

Not everyone vomits with an appendicitis attack, is she bloated? My dad got the bloating and vomiting just prior to surgery and after the appendix burst.

YES!!! This happened to me when I was about 25. My doctor called it a 'disrupted follicle'. I guess the egg wasnt matured enough when it left my fallopian tube. It caused excruciating pain. He said once the egg left my body, the pain would be gone immediately, and it was and I felt fine.

Hi, Erin.

EVERYTHING in the small intestine is supposed to be absorbed. Your colon is your sewer, filled with waste products and toxins. NOTHING but a little vitamin K and water is supposed to be absorbed from the colon.

The iliocecal valve is the barrier between these systemns. If it leaks back, anything from the colon can get into the small intestine and go directly into the blood stream.

This is a great toxic burden to the bodymind.

LGS is the most common cause of this leakage and there are many ways to help it stay closed to regurgitation: chlorophyll, Chiropractic manipulation, dealing with LGS, etc.

Any good Chiropractor can show you pictures and fully explain this to you.

Hope this helps.
