Had a niggling pain in lower right abdomen all day, but seems to be getting stronger. Pain intensified when just went to toilet. Feel a bit sicky and headachey also. Possible uti?

UTI definitely possible, I think.

I went to the Drs with this sort of pain, convinced it was something sinister, and it turned out to be constipation blush

Which probably shows I'm not a medical expert, so don't listen to me!

Appendicitis? Don't ignore worsening pain, see someone.

could be gall stones? Sure is fine, but get it checked.

Appendicitis pain gets worse on the rebound rather than when applying pressure. So push in where you feel sore, if that makes it worse it is probably not appendicitis, but if you feel it gets worse as soon as you remove the pressure you might want to get it looked at.

UTI is probably more likely, if you start to feel any worse perhaps give out of hours a call. Hope you feel better soon.
