The Most Common Symptoms Leading Up to Appendicitis


2. Appendicitis Pain

The most commonly attributed symptom of appendicitis is sharp pain in the lower right abdomen, or pain that begins at the belly button and shifts to the lower right abdomen, in the general area where the organ is located (a small sac that protrudes from the large intestine).

Appendicitis pain is typically constant, meaning it doesn’t come in and out or go away completely. It often causes patients to double over in pain and is typically described by patients as being “jabbed with a knife.”
