I woke up at midnight with a stitch-like pain in my side. I thought I maybe just needed a pee so had one then went back to bed.
I woke up in agony this morning at around 5am and it's not going away. Again it's a stitch-like pain in my right hand side, but it is worse when I am lying down. I have had a number 2, drank lots of water but it's not helping.
I sneezed earlier, I thought it would make it worse, but it didn't effect the pain at all.
It also hurts if I press on the area.
I have had a look at previous threads, but the closest I can see is people with suspected apendicitis.
I thought maybe ligament pain, although I thought this would be on both sides and closer to the bone. This feels muscular.
Anyone had anything similar, or have any suggestions?
Even though I am in pain, I don't think it is bad enough to bother the midwife.
Hiya i have had similar pains which happen when I move too quick especially in bed at night or get up to quick, they go away fairly quickly though and are what I believe to be round ligament pains and I only get them on one side.
What u are describing sounds similar although for u the pains havent went away. It could be possible u have pulled a muscle or something while turning in bed. If ure worried at all doll I would contact ure midwife, after all that is what they are there for.
Do you feel feverish or nauseous? The pain you are describing, particularly the fact that it hurts when you press down....are warning signs for appendicitis (I am a nurse). I would suggest you take a trip to your gp. Obviously if you do have appendicitis it needs to be treated as it can cause all sorts of problems if you dont. However it may very well be that he takes a look at you and decides it is ligament pain...in which case you feel much better and can breathe a sigh of relief.
I had the right sided pain a few days ago,, very sharp ect.. didnt seem to be going away.. but it has now
I think it may be baby pressing on a nerve ect..
Hope you feel better soon, if it persists go to your gp x
I had it a few week ago, though think mine might have been the left side. Was on and off all night, wasnt that painful, more annoying. The MW seemed to think a water infection though that was ruled out so guessing was just growing pains, though like i said was not that painful. Not like what I have now, shooting vagina pains all day ouch....
