Thank you. I appreciated your answer and will take your advice to heart. I admit I get stressed out. Just being born with cerebral palsy and having asthma has a kid hasn't got me thinking i'm invincible. I've had a bone grow out of my wrist. I tend to panic I know that. thanks for your reassurance.
I was in a similar situation except when I went to the emergency clinic they found a high white cell count in my blood indicating an infection. The doctor told me that the only way they would know for sure is a CT scan. Mine did confirm perforated appendicitis. I got in this position because I have a high tolerance for pain. Hell, I was bowling with a perforated appendix hours before going to the emergency. Not every person dealing with appendicitis is going to experience severe pain. However, the outcome could be devastating regardless of how much pain anyone feels. if you are still concerned go to your doctor and request a CT Scan. That is going to let you know for sure.
