Health Tip: Take Appendicitis Symptoms Seriously

Health Tip: Take Appendicitis Symptoms Seriously

07/15/11

(HealthDay News) -- While the appendix doesn't appear to have a real job in the body, it quickly becomes a concern when inflammation of the organ -- known as appendicitis -- sets in.

The Cleveland Clinic mentions these warning signs of appendicitis:

  • Vomiting and nausea.
  • Pain in the lower-right area of the abdomen that becomes worse when touched.
  • Soreness just above the belly button that may extend to the lower-right area of the belly.
  • Aforementioned pain that worsens when coughing, sneezing, moving around or taking a deep breath.
  • Running a mild fever.
  • Having diarrhea, constipation or being unable to pass gas.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Abdominal swelling.
