Please go to the ER, take if from someone who has had apendisitis and l have lupus please please go to the ER.
I was fooled the time I had my apendisitis I was told by my dad who had his removed also that oh you'll have pain in the lower right side of the stomach and nausea, possible vomitting and fever.
Umm.......nope not me I had very, very mild nausea and that was actually way after we had gone to the ER, no fever, all I had was the pain in my tummy on the right side THAT"S IT!
by the time they agreed that it was that and I went for surgery they said had I waited even another few min it would have burst!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm telling you, you just never know it is better to be safe than sorry. And yup true that we lupies get a lot of swollen stuff but never, never let something like that just sit around.
THe only reason is cause if it were to burst because of our lupus and comprimised immune system it woudln't be good.
Please do go to the ER a little inconvience now might be a lifesaver.
Take care and keep us posted.
