Why there is severe pain in his right side
The pain in his right side more often speaks of appendicitis - this condition is almost always occurs suddenly and requires urgent action. At this point, the most important thing - do not get lost and time to call an ambulance, because the disease is almost always ends in surgery. There are pains in the right side as in diseases of the gallbladder and biliary tract.
Severe pain in the lower right side of the abdomen is most often associated with appendicitis - inflammation of the appendix of the cecum (the cecum - this is the beginning of the large intestine). Appendix (appendix) - a hollow gut of a small diameter. Acute appendicitis occurs when plugging holes between vermiform appendix and cecum due process of inflection, closing his fecal stones and so on. In the wall of the appendix of the intestine introduced bacteria that cause inflammation.
Another cause of pain in the right side can be inflammation of the bile ducts and gall bladder

. This phenomenon occurs when the stagnation of bile, which is often accompanied by the formation of stones. Inflammation causes the aching pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen near the middle, and infringement of a stone - acute pain in the same area - an attack of gallstones.
Pain in the right side at an acute appendicitis
Pain in the right side of appendicitis at first did not have a particular place, that is, first hurt the entire abdomen. But after some time (when the inflammation increases) localized pain starts in one small area in the lower abdomen on the right. In this area there is also a protective muscle tension - all these signs of "acute abdomen", they say that the patient needs extra help. At this temperature can increase, nausea and vomiting. These are signs of transient bowel obstruction
Ileus - the reasons may be different
If acute appendicitis is not the time to operate, it may come perforation of the wall of the appendix, the infection gets into the abdomen and cause inflammation of the peritoneum - the inner membrane covering the inside of the abdominal cavity (peritonitis). This is very dangerous, because it leads to inflammation of all the organs in the abdominal cavity.
In some cases, acute appendicitis can cause intestinal paresis (complete cessation of its motor activity) that can lead to intestinal obstruction. A sign of this complication is the growing bloating

, Nausea and vomiting.
Therefore, in cases of suspected appendicitis urgently need to call an ambulance and go to the hospital. The only help that can be given to such a patient - surgery removal of the appendix.
Pain in the right side at an acute cholecystitis
In acute cholecystitis is most often first appears in the right upper quadrant colic. Typically, this occurs several hours after the violations in the diet (fatty foods, alcohol). The pain occurs because of blockage of the bile duct stone and lasts from a few minutes to several hours. Then she goes, or yourself, or withdrawn drugs - antispasmodics, which causes relaxation of the muscles of internal organs (such as papaverine).
By stagnation of bile joins inflammation caused by infection, the pain intensifies, give back, up under the right clavicle, there is vomiting, fever, and sometimes the skin becomes yellow (bile pigments into the blood). Stomach painful at a palpation can be seen strain of abdomen muscles, which prevents the stomach probe deeply - a sign of "acute" abdomen, this indicates that the patient is in need of urgent assistance.
In the surgical ward for patients there and, if necessary, carry out surgery - remove the stone that caused the blockage of the ducts or the gallbladder is full.
Pain in the right side in chronic cholecystitis
In chronic inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), there may be stones, but sometimes they may not be. The walls of the gallbladder become dense, poorly reduced, which contributes to the stagnation of bile.
In this disease there is acute pain, but occasionally (usually in violation of the diet, or after exercise), there is a feeling of heaviness and pain in the right upper quadrant, which is accompanied by a bitter taste in the mouth, belching, nausea, vomiting.
Chronic calculous (with the formation of stones), cholecystitis, complicated forms nekalkuleznogo (without stones) cholecystitis treated promptly. In some cases conservative treatment as well as treatment in a sanatorium (but without exacerbation).
