Hi there. I'm having the sort of flare up today that's keeping me in bed when I want to be gardening. Anyone out there sometimes get horrible drilling sort of pain in the lower right abdomen near the groin? I always start to freak that it's going to be appendicitis but I have experienced this for over 40 years! I first got it when I was 15 and my mum got peritonitis from a burst undetected appendicitis. Probably says it all really. Any kind words gratefully received.
