I've been having this very uncomfortable feeling sore like feeling on the right side of my stomach,more specifically almost directly when my belly button is.the sensation actually seems to be affecting the whole right side of from my stomach to my back.I've been afraid it could be my appendix, however I don't have any fever at all or diarrhea or anything noticeably different in my stool. I do have Irritable Bowel and can get constipated so I try to take Fiber supplements regularly but nothing any different in that area.I read somewhere that fiber may make appendicitis worse but I wouldn't know if this is true.I also feel no significant amount of pain when that area of my stomach is pressed or depressed.
I would feel this pain off and on for the last 6 months lasting maybe a day or two at a time but now have been feeling this for almost two weeks straight now.

Could this possibly just be a pain radiating from a slipped disc that I have in my lower back.I'm also having my kidney's tested because I have blood in my urine and do feel pain in that area of my back but so far CT scans,X-rays showed negative on the Kidneys but I'm currently waiting for results for an Ultrasound.Can you feel pain form your kidneys in your abdomen?I'm really trying to avoid going to the ER as I do not currently have insurance and would hate to go for nothing to only be told all the test are negative and that it's only anxiety.Any advise would be appreciated.Thank you.

Hello and welcome to E health forum.

Presence of abdominal pain, blood in the urine, could be associated with conditions like renal stone and glomerulonephritis.

A repeat urinalysis, total urine protein estimation, and if needed a renal biopsy might be very helpful to diagnose your condition.

You might consult a urologist for proper treatment and advice.
