It was a long time ago that I had appendicitis, but I do recall it starting quite manageable and ramping up gradually to unbearable. Best of luck OP - hope it's an easy fix for you and that you don't have to hang out at the hospital for too long.

Hope you managed to see a doctor Hasselhoff, and it was nothing serious.

I forgot to reply. Ended up getting in to see a doctor, the pain had eased off a bit. Still sore but ok. Had a blood test - she said it may have something to do with gall stones but not sure. I've got a referral for an ultrasound if the pain gets worse. But for now I wait it out, panadol and heat pack and rest.
Thank you all for your replies 😀

This doctor has confused me. Wish I was seeing my normal gp.
having the ultrasound tomorrow morning. The pain hasn't increased but the doctor said results on blood test showed inflammation? How the heck does a blood test show that?! So she said to have the ultrasound just to check my gallbladder.

Inflammation would show up as white blood cells being elevated (I think - high school biology teacher, not medical person lol)

How did you go with the ultrasound? Hope you are feeling much better.

The guy who did the ultrasound said it all seems ok. He wasn't very forthcoming with information though lol I rang to see if the doctor had looked at the ultrasound but apparently they haven't got any results yet. So I have to ring tomorrow to see. I'm hoping if there's anything there I can get copies of everything and take them to my normal gp to talk it through but I'd say it will pass.
And thank you very much for asking ☺️
