back to when you first noticed any symptoms. If you can remember stomach
pain, but the pain not being centralized in any location, this is
common in early appendicitis conditions. The pain starts generally
all over the stomach and eventually centralizes to a position on your
lower right abdomen.
appendicitis is associated with a fever and vomiting, although these
are not necessary.
A person can have appendicitis without fever and vomiting, only pain
in the lower right abdomen.
isn't constant, but if you press halfway between the hip bone and
belly button on a suspected appendicitis patient and they feel pain
when you release, that is very indicative of appendicitis.
typically begins with a vague pain in the middle of the abdomen often
near the navel or "belly button" (umbilicus). The pain slowly
moves to the right lower abdomen (toward the right hip) over the next
24 hours. In the classic description, abdominal pain is accompanied
with nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and fever. All of these symptoms,
however, occur in fewer than half of people who develop appendicitis.
More commonly, people with appendicitis have any combination of these
of appendicitis may take 4-48 hours to develop. During this time,
someone developing appendicitis may have varying degrees of loss of
appetite, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Some may have constipation,
diarrhea, or there may be no change in bowel habits.
symptoms are often hard to separate from other conditions including
gastroenteritis (an inflammation of the stomach and intestines). Many
people admitted to the hospital for suspected appendicitis leave the
hospital with a diagnosis of gastroenteritis; true appendicitis is
often mis-diagnosed as gastroenteritis initially
