could this be appendicitis?

by taylor

im 15.
i had burger king on monday night, and woke up in the late night at about 3:30am with the most agonizing pain i've ever felt.

i went pee and when i came back to lay down, i started to feel really sweaty but i was cold, then i started feeling sick, and i actually puked at about 4:00am. after i got sick i layed in the bath tub for like 15 minutes but the pain would not go away, so i got out. but when i got out i was to drained of energy from the pain to even put all my clothes on. so i layed down and finally fell asleep.

i woke up at about 6:00am and threw up again. its been 4 days and im still having the pains in my right abdomen. im not sure what it sounds like?

Hello Taylor,

It does sound like food poisoning, rather than appendicitis. If your appetite is still good, ... or at least you still feel hungry, and the pain and vomiting started about the same time, then it is not likely to be due to appendicitis.

Always remember though, that it is always best to be examined on a face to face basis by a doctor, to be sure. So please if your pain still persists, go to see your doctor today.

I hope this helps.

last night and during today i have had bad pains in the right lower side of my stomach basically to the right side of my belly button. the pain doesn't go away but feels better when i sit, but feels like a stitch when i move around but worse. i feel like i'm going to vomit and also have not felt like eating. i also have pain in my shoulders and a headache but no temperature.
if you could help that would be great.
