Patient discussion about R

Q. the R side of my stomach is hurting bad and it is going down my leg and in my back does that sound like this

A. Well it all depends on how long these pains have been going on. If it is a matter of 1-2 days, this pain , if very very strong and accompanied by nausea or vomiting, can certainly be an acute appendicitis attack, which should make you hurry up to seek medical attention. If the pain is tolerable, and has been going on for more than few days, it is not compatible with appendicitis pain, but can be a lot of other reasons, for instance- gall bladder problems (for instance - stones) or renal stones.
Either way you have to see a doctor about this pain if you want proper diagnosis and treatment.

Q. how medications effect me side effects warfarin,s effect what does I and R mean i have my I and R each week, what is it,s function..........
