is there anyway a thickened and irritated cecum can cause pain and swelling of the left side of my back?

Not likely: Inflammation in the cecum can cause pain low on the right side of your back but not likely the left. However, a thickened cecum can be a sign of crohn's disease (among other things) which can also have arthritis symptoms like back pain.
