Sharp Pain in Side?


A sharp pain in the side could be as harmless as gas pains. But, if the pain is accompanied by nausea and fever, you could have appendicitis. For women, another possibility is an ovarian cyst. In both cases, you're looking at emergency surgery. If an inflamed appendix is not removed it can burst. A twisted cyst also needs to be removed right away, as it can block blood flow to the ovary within hours. If you start experiencing them almost daily for more than two or three weeks, consider it a red flag. Schedule an appointment with your Ob-Gyn to discuss your symptoms.
