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.

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 Bloating - if you are bursting inside  Bloating - if you are bursting inside

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).

Remember, when a severe pain in the abdomen Severe abdominal pain: possible causes  Severe abdominal pain: possible causes
