I also have been thinking that I could have chronic appendicitis along with my IBS. I had the H. Pylori infection in 2002 and ever since then I've been in bad shape and suffering so much that I am unable to go to school or work or carry on with a normal life. I was told within the past 2 years that what I have is most likely IBS along with myofascial pain syndrome. But since 2007ish I have been getting these "attacks" in my appendix area. The pain is absolutely debilitating and I am unable to move and have troubles breathing because of the pain. My most recent attack in this area was just on Thursday and the pain lasted for 45 mins before receding into a dull/numbing pain. I would have had someone take me to the hospital if I hadn't experienced that type of pain before. I've talked to my doctor about it but he just thinks that it is pain associated with IBS. The pain that I get from IBS is also very debilitating and I get it in various placs around my stomach and back. I've seen numerous specialists and have had countless procedures done but nothing helps. Anyways, I'm thinking of asking my doctor about the appendix area pain again because maybe it is chronic appendicitis? And keep being persistent with your doctor, don't let up. They will not realize how serious your problem is or how much pain you are in unless you persist.
I have the same symptoms for 7 months . From my research mps and fibro is conntected to the appendix...Hi. I know this post is old but I just joined and saw myofascial pain syndrome and had to reply.
im on here due to intense pain from ibs... pain so bad scared me cuz on rt side... came across ur post. Rarely see MPS. I too have MPS and IBS also fibro and interstitial cystitis. It took over a decade to get dx for mps. My heart goes out to you. I too was in school...in college at UF and working. Slowly missing both till I had to give up and move home. That was 19 yrs ago. I really haven't treated my ibs and finally am getting to a gi dr...been too overwhelmed with chronic pain amd fatigue from mps fibro and I.c. hope you get mps treatment. I highly recommend reading about myotherapy and myofascial release. I have yet to get it covers by insurance so never got treated properly and trig points got out of control. Now just pain mgt sadly. Get injections of lidocaine amd nerve blocks. Mostly my own treatments help. Yoga, using tennis balls to push down on muscles that feel like concrete and when so severe only water helps but no pool.Times I had access to pool changed my life. Miracle! Im trying now tp get a jacuzzi just to use to swim around in... anything to get into water and move. Fight for myofascial therapy and hydrotherapy and never physical therapy that has you doing resistant training. Never use weights etc. Pt don't understand mps and made mine worse. I realize you didn't ask for advice just felt need just in case. I do believe all this disorders are related somehow. ..its too much of a coincidence. Good luck!
