Would you be concerned or just ride the pain out..?
So, yesterday I had shocking pain in my stomach - middle area (if u know what I mean) I assumed it was gas pain lol was a bit feverish and bloated, took a couple of panadol and went to bed. Can't lay flat on my back (which is just strange) because the pain is horrible.
Have a restless sleep but do ok.
Wake up this morning and the pain has moved to the right side (just below my ribs)
I can barely roll over in bed without it hurting.
It hurts to walk, it hurts to cough (which is crap because I am getting over a cold)
I am NOT pregnant.
I live in a country town so my gp isn't open and it's hard to get appointments in town on a Sunday.
The pain is bad but i can still do stuff.. Very slowly and not much bending.
Should I be concerned? Wait it out and see my gp tomorrow hopefully..

Does it hurt if you push on it? Is it there all the time or sporadic?

Call the health direct advice line for your area. 1800 022 222 is the national number I think. Please don't self diagnose.

Honestly if it were me I would go to an ED to get it checked out. Health direct will probably tell you to do so.
Abdominal pain can be due to so many things and it is best to get it checked out if you are having trouble rolling over. Better safe than sorry!

I dragged myself out of bed.. Still quite sore. I've noticed some positions I sit in I'm ok and the pain is minimal.

Totally understand! It is tricky being a weekend as well ..I have been in that situation before.
I might be overly cautious because I have had a few episodes of abdominal pain which needed treatment. It may be nothing...but with abdo pain I do always think its best to check it out.
Def call health direct at the very least. Do you have out of hours GP's in your area?
Let us know how you go!

I don't know if it's a good sign or not but when I was sitting a few minutes ago the pain pretty much went away. It has come back but it's not as bad. If I take a deep breath or cough it gets a bit sore.
There are some gps but they are hard to get into. I'd have to go into town to see them if I could get an appointment. Just wish I could see my gp lol
