Hi doctor,

I am 23 years old. I am experiencing gastric issues, ulcers in the stomach, hiatal hernia, cysts in my kidneys for the past few days. I have bad stomach pain at night and it hurts around the belly button and at the lower portion of the appendix. Can I have appendicitis? I started to have stomach issues for two months.

I went to the emergency for having repeated episodes of bad stomach aches. I had it after taking hot spicy food and NSAIDs. I took a CT scan of my abdomen and found that I have ulcers and multiple cysts in both my kidneys. I did an EGD procedure at the hospital and found out that I have gastritis and a medium-sized Hiatal hernia.



Welcome to

Your complaints can be due to peptic ulcer disease and hiatus hernia. Both of them can co-exist at times. Also get yourself checked for H.Pylori (helicobacter pylori) infection, which can be the cause of having peptic ulcer disease. A course of antibiotics can alleviate your symptoms if the cause is due to H.Pylori. In the absence of fever, the chances of having appendicitis are less. I strongly suggest you visit a physician or surgeon and get yourself evaluated. Your physician can suggest you to do a USG (ultrasound scan) or CT (computed tomography) scan.
