In brief: Appendicitis

No actually not! appendicitis is an acute progressive condition that ends up in surgery or death.
While there may be a condition of chronic appendicitis its hard to prove. The possibilities of the symptoms you listed can be everything from gastritis to gallstones to gastroenteritis. This should prompt you to see a doctor when you can!
