How can I tell appendicitis from another condition?

Sometimes it can be difficult to diagnose appendicitis, as the symptoms may vary. Usually nausea and vomiting occur before pain. A CT scan is useful in diagnosing appendicitis from other medical conditions. If you have pain on the lower right-hand side of your abdomen (stomach) and you feel sick, seek medical advice to make sure you do not have appendicitis.
