Chronic appendicitis fear again
« on: June 07, 2014, 09:40:35 PM »
I'm lost in the anxiety funk again. Today I was pressing on my abdomen (like an idiot) and I pushed on my abdomen with my entire arm while laying down and I got a pain in the EXACT area where my appendix would be. I freaked out. Although, now I only get a general pain in my lower right quadrant. I don't have any other symptoms.

Could this just be my brain screwing with me again?  :traurig001:

Yes would be the answer to that. Push anywhere on your body, and if you push hard enough it will hurt. That part of your body is a soft part of the body. It would hurt more if pushed hard. Just try and take your mind off of things. There is nothing wrong with you.

If you had appendicitis, you would know it.

Again, an appendix-post.

I have had appendicitis.

I know a lot of people just say, 'you'd know'. This is because you would know.

You WOULD know.

I am very much aware that it isn't acute appendicitis. If that was a case, I'd probably pass out because my pain threshold is tiny.

Although, there have been very rare cases in which the appendix can give mild problems over a extended period of time.

I've been dealing with this fear for nearly a year, although I didn't find out about chronic appendicitis until recently.

Again, I usually feel fine (minus the fatigue and weak limbs and other stuff I get from anxiety). Although some days I wake up irritated in that same area.....however there's a good chance that's just a muscle that a keep pulling.

Appendicitis just scares me. I'm deathly afraid of hospitals and surgery so the condition I think I have is right up my ally.
