An organ with not much purpose sure can cause a lot of pain. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, one in 500 people comes down with appendicitis each year. “The pain is centered in the right, lower part of the abdomen. It’s associated with a slight fever, nausea and loss of appetite,” says Dr. Philip Schoenfeld. Other stomach problems tend to get better and go away—appendicitis doesn’t. If the pain continues for longer than six to 12 hours, or if you experience recurrent or acute severe belly pain, contact a physician—pronto! Appendicitis is nothing to mess with—it can cause the appendix to rupture or result in an infection. Surgery is necessary, but appendectomies are common.

I had appendicitis when i was 8. now im 16. my mom thought it was the stomache flu so i was home for a week but it didnt go away so i was taken to the emergency room,and i was there for week. The scar shouldnt be that big, but mine is because my appendix was going up into my rib cage so they had to cut my stomach more. Oh and after it hurts to walk but you should definetly walk, the nurses made me walk everyday

I am worried I might have appendicitis. 2 days ago I wasn't really hungry (I still am not) and after eating lunch I started to feel nauseous but it passed. Now I have a ache in my lower right abdomen. It isn't too bad but it becomes more prominent if I stand up and when I walk. It is not severely painful though. I am slightly gassy and my stomach does not hurt when I apply pressure to that area. The pain was bad last night after I had some popcorn at the movies. I have a sensitive stomach and movie popcorn upsets it, but this pain was like I wanted to bend over in pain. After waking up this morning though, it didn't hurt nearly as bad. What do you think? Thanks!

I'm paranoid about it too. Everytime I feel a little ting pain at all in my stomache or whatever I get freaked out and press on my stomach to make sure it doesn't hurt. I wouldn't be if I hadn't like bruised my left hip in Jan and thought it was my appendix but then I found out it's on the right and now I'm paranoid !!! Grr ugh!!
