The most common symptom of appendicitis is pain in the abdomen. The pain usually begins in your belly button and then moves to the right lower side of the abdomen. This pain will begin suddenly and then get worse over a matter of hours typically, and will occur before any of the other symptoms. Other notable symptoms that you'll have, or could have, include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea, a low grade fever, and that feeling of needing to move the bowels to relieve all this discomfort. the symptoms differ for each person and can mimic the symptoms of other conditions. And therefore it can sometimes be difficult to initially diagnose the appendicitis examples of other conditions that can mimic appendicitis include abdominal adhesions, inflammatory bowel disease, gastroenteritis, intestinal obstruction, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
