    Like, maybe i have appendicitis or something. Seriously, i'm scared! I know it can be fatal. I'm having like a knotted feeling, almost like i need to go number 2 (i don't, by the way) on my left side down near my bellybutton, it comes almost in waves, hurts more when i stand up and strech, i've had it since i got up, i seem to be having (this is embarrassing) a bit of, you know, gas, and yeah. Just please give me a straight answer. Thank you!

    If it was your appendix you wouldn't be able to work it wi that painful.

    The pain travels from the top of your right leg to the left and vice-versa.

    You could have IBS, which isn't anything serious. Try see a doctor about the pain

    How long has it been like that for?

    Bare in mind chance of a correct differential diagnosis on here from, most likely, non-medical students is probably low. :P
