I have been having this pain for the last three days and wonder if it's related to Lyme or not. Short, stabbing pains -- not awful, just uncomfortable -- near my appendix. Just wondering if I need to go to yet another doctor to have this checked out (don't want a burst appendix!) or if it could be related to Lyme...

Thanks

How often do they happen? I occasionally get short sharp pains in one of my ovaries. Never happened before lyme symptoms set in December. So, I concluded they must be lyme related.

If you press down on that region does it hurt upon release?

Are you running a fever or feeling nauseated at all? Those are a couple of symptoms that come with appendix problems, but not always. If it keeps up it would be a good idea to have your doctor check it out.

There's no pain when I press, and the pain occurs every few minutes for a very short burst

One test they use in my doctors office to check appendix is to jump on just your right foot. If it REALLY hurts your stomach to do that, most likely is the appendix. In my daughter's case, she couldn't stand because the pain was so bad so the doctor hit her right heel while she was laying down and the pain was enormous. Sent us to the hospital and her appendix came out a few hours later.

I have had pain in that area for about 2 years now. I have had ultra sounds and many other test. My MD has ruled out everything she could think of, without going in and looking. It is always there, not to painful most of the time but still there. I think it might be swollen lymph or have something to do with where the large and small intestine meet. Sorry I have not been more help.
Found out I had lyme in May of 2009. My husband and kids have tested positive too. I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms are Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, Auto immune disease, and hypo-thyroid.
 
Started treatment with samento in june 2009. Side effects are swelling of my liver, lymph system and kidneys.
 
Anaphylactic reactions to beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and soy.
 
My family and I are enjoying a life without dairy for the last 19 years.  We have also removed sugar, gluten, beef and soy for the last 5 years.

In a way, Lyme & co's are responsible for a lot that goes on in our bodies.I have had to have as hysto, appedendectomy, and my gall bladder removed, & I believe that it's because of TBI's, as it drags down everything.

But if the pain continues, please get checked out by a good doc!! There are so many things can could be going on, it's really hard for anyone here to understand what it could be.

I don't want to scare anyone, but it's better to err on the side of caution, IMHO.

Each time I had one of 'those' pains checked out, I have had to get on medication, or have something removed, as it was diseased &/or ready to rupture.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

Could be a spasming bowel, muscle or blood vessel. I get strange lower-right abdominal pain sometimes that is intermittant like that when the end of my small intestine (where it joins with the large intestine) is inflammed or irritated sometimes. It is believed in my case that the Lyme has inflammed my bowels, but this may not be your case. It would probably be a good idea to ask your LLMD about this just to be sure.

I get the same thing. Comes and goes. Had sonogram and nothing was wrong. Think it is an intestinal thing. Probably inflamation.
