Appendicitis Symptoms

Your appendix is an unused organ in your lower abdomen. It is an organ that may at one time have had a use but currently there is no known use of the appendix. Unfortunately, if your appendix becomes inflamed then you will begin suffering from appendicitis symptoms and need to seek medical advice as soon as possible.

Early on, you will begin to experience appendicitis symptoms that are very mild. The most recognizable symptom will be an aching pain near your navel. As your appendicitis progresses, it begins to shift to lower right abdomen. During his time the inflammation will be spreading to nearby tissues and the pain will become stronger and sharper.

The pain will eventually settle in your lower abdomen, near where your appendix is located. This point is located halfway between your upper right pelvic bone and your navel. This point is know as the McBurney point and pain in this area is the leading symptom that you have appendicitis and that you need surgery to remove it.

You may also experience other appendicitis symptoms along with the pain. They are important to pay attention to, especially in children who may not be able to communicate the pain location properly. These appendicitis symptoms include abdominal swelling, diarrhea and constipation. There may be a loss of appetite accompanied by a low grade fever. Likewise, appendicitis sufferers may experience a lack of ability to pass gas to relieve any of the other appendicitis symptoms.

It's important to seek out medical treatment if you suspect appendicitis or if you or your family member is suffering from these appendicitis symptoms. Prompt medical treatment is essential in all appendicitis cases.
