What are the symptoms of appendicitis?
Appendicitis pain usually starts around your navel (belly button) and within a few hours spreads to the lower right-hand side of your abdomen (stomach), just above your appendix. The pain tends to become severe within a few hours. Pressing on the area will be painful. You may feel sick, lose your appetite and find walking or coughing makes the pain worse.
