Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Appendicitis:
Anyone with symptoms needs to see a doctor
- Pain in the right side of the abdomen. The pain usually begins near
the navel and moves down and to the right. The pain becomes worse when
moving, taking deep breaths, coughing, sneezing, and being touched in
- Inability to pass gas.
- Low fever that begins after other symptoms.
- Abdominal swelling.
Not everyone has all symptoms. It is important that people with
symptoms of appendicitis not take laxatives or enemas to relieve
constipation because these medicines could cause the appendix to burst.
People also should not take pain medicine because it can mask symptoms
that the doctor needs to know about.
