What is epiploic appendagitis like?

In brief: Unexplained pain

The fingerlike fatty appendages can sometimes twist on themselves and constrict the blood supply.
when this happens, one feels very localized pain until the distal portion dies off. They usually require no surgery unless they are mistaken for something else, when they can easily be amputated to make the pain better faster. But surgery is usually not necessary
