When I first had severe pain in my abdomen back in my early 20's...I had no clue and the pain was so severe I went to the ER..
It showed I had ruptured cysts....but the Dr. was worried with all the ruptures and adhesions...that it could still affect my appendix so they went ahead and took it out. They also removed other large cysts and cut through some adhesions.
Thankfully it is a very quick, laproscopic procedure and I was there in the morning for the surgery and home by the afternoon. The main pain afterwards was the air trapped because of the surgery...But that went away after a few days and I had the same thing...a vacation planned to the beach. I was good to go after 3 days...
So...in one way I hope it is your appendix because then you will be rid of pain after it's taken out!...
If it is something like cysts or endometriosis...then it will unfortunately be a recurring problem...
Keep us posted..
