In general: In general appendicitis usually does not have diarrhea (although I have seen it before) and has intense abd pain typically in the right lower abdomen. Sounds like virus to me as that is most common. It is important to stay very hydrated and if you are nauseated to get anti nausea medications and be evaluated. There are other poss diagnosis like diverticulitis (but usual has temp left side pain)
