Has anyone ever had appendicitis? I have Crohn's ileitis and when I had my first ever flare up in the ER they thought I had appendicitis (ended up just telling my I had a virus and it would be gone in two weeks, HA)  but the pain and symptoms were exactly the same and even in the same place. I've been experiencing extreme stabbing pain in that same spot (really low right abdomen) from to the right of belly button, all over my right abdomen, even my back. Am I just having symptoms of a flare up or should I be concerned its something more?

@Kristina_M‍, I am bumping this conversation up in hopes someone can offer you some advice/input from their experiences.

@Lee__R thank you for the help! I went to the ER and they did a CT scan. I actually have a large ovarian cyst  which is right near my ileitis and I have to get it removed. I have the worst luck! But the doctor advised to always go to the ER when having severe pain in that area, for anyone else who ever experiences this.
