How can you tell when a 4 year old child has the stomach flu or the dreaded appendicitis?

In brief: You cannot

If you suspect that a 4 yr old may have appendicitis they should be examined by a doctor. If they are having abdominal pain, the abdomen is tender, they are vomiting, cannot lie still, then these are suggestive symptoms that an exam would be beneficial.
