The pain has gotten so bad a couple times that I thought it was appendicitis. I had a sonogram done but it came back clear.

Answer

Lower right side by your hip can be your appendix. Acute appendicitis is very painful and comes with a fever. It could be that that's where you feel the constipation but I definitely think it's worth going in to see someone.

The bigger issue you might want to see someone about is the constipation if it is frequent or chronic.
