  • Appendicitis pain won't ease up after emptying your bladder. It's sharp and overwhelming, not dull and achy. Could you have a urinary tract infection? Check with your doctor or go to an urgent care clinic.

  • i had it when i was a child. i remember having terrible below stomach area ache and i could not get up from the bed on my own. i had to support myself or somebody would have to pull me up. i had it removed before it could break.

  • Have it checked out. I am no dr. but it sounds more like a bladder infection to me.

  • It does not sound like appendicitis, sounds more urinary tract related. You might have a UTI.

  • I have had several bladder infections. When I get them, I know now within a couple of hours if it is really a bladder infection or not. The most common sign is the need to go pee every few minutes, when you do go pee, there is a lot of pain and cramping in your bladder, and when it comes out, your urethra and 'pee hole opening' burn and sting and stuff. Its the funniest thing - it feels so good and SO AWFUL to pee, all at the same time!! But you also could be suffering from a ovarian cyst. When I get them, and I have to pee and I can't right away, it hurts the same place you described, and when I pee, it feels lots better until the next time.
