Dr. Benjamin Kim answered:

Is there such a thing as acute appendicitis? What r symptoms? I have no fever, occasional nausea, no rebound pain, near constant pain R side, 2 days.

Yes acute appendicit

Fever-adult
Pain, nausea, anorexia, fever, tenderness in right lower abdomen are the classic signs and symptoms. Retrocecal appendicitis may show little of these until late, often after rupture. You should get evaluated, by your primary, the ER or a general surgeon with possible need for CT for persistent pain.

Dr. Jan Rakinic answered:

What are the first warnings or symptoms of appendicitis?

Pain, anorexia

Appendicitis
Classic appendicitis symptoms are: pain that starts near the belly button and is crampy, and then moves to the right lower abdomen and becomes constant; and anorexia (not being hungry). Fever is common, and many have nausea. Most don't have vomiting or change in bowel habits. Symptoms can be atypical if the appendix is located somewhere other than the normal place (in the right lower abdomen).

Dr. Jon C. Krook answered:

what are symptoms of appendicitis?

Abdominal pain

Appendicitis
Abdominal pain that starts in the center of your abdomen and moves down to your right lower quadrant is "classic" for appendicitis. Unfortunately, appendicitis rarely presents classically. Sometimes it is accompanied with a fever and nausea, but not always. You have to have abdominal pain to have appendicitis.

What are the symptoms of appendicitis in babies?

Unlikely

Baby
Appendicitis would be very unusual in an infant, but anything is possible. If your baby has belly pain, swelling, poor feeding, fever and/or vomiting, they need to be examined right away.

What are the symptoms of having appendicitis?

RLQ ABD Pain

Open-uri20130207-29378-xl7ohc
THE "CLASSIC" PT: vague abdominal pain that 'moves' to the right lower abdomen over ~24hrs, becoming CONSTANT, PROGRESSIVELY WORSENING; decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, fever. Studies have shown that only 50% of patients have classic symptoms, making the diagnosis somewhat challenging. CT scans have been very helpful for diagnosis in equivocal cases, but the radiation exposure is not trivial
