usually i would not semi-repost, but a few days ago i posted about this problem and, everyone here at cz is so helpful, maybe the only reason i didnt receive a response is because it was in the wrong categor(ies), so i just want to make one more try...
about 3 days ago, i started feeling this pressure in my right side, just above my waist, whenever i would lean down.
and then it started to feel like there was swelling against the inside of my side.
it's still going on...
i dont seem to have any flare in symptoms after eating (different maybe than with liver/gallbladder stones?)
(in case this is relevant...my digestive tract does seem to be moving, though maybe not enough)
i think i have had this happen once before...
i was wondering if it is possible (does anyone know if it's possible?) for appendicitis to start to come on, but then maybe there was a blockage, inflaming the appendix, but then the blockage was able to be freed and it didnt get full blown?
i also wanted to mention, because of some mouth issues i'd been having, for about a week i've been taking 3 teaspoons a day (in divided doses) of xylitol, which i know is a Sugar
alcohol and Sugar
alcohols can cause gas or gastric discomfort in people ...but for the first few days i was taking it, i don't think it caused me any trouble, but maybe it's possible there could be a connection... ***i have stopped the xylitol as of yesterday***
my digestive tract doesnt feel very toned ...so, separately, if anyone would like to recommend any herbs that are ...astringent... i would appreciate that...
thank you all, for always helping me through my health trials and tribulations!
wishing you all good health, and blessings!
