In brief: It hurts!!

Sometimes the pain from an inflamed appendix can start around your naval.
The pain usually worsens over time and moves to mcburney's point which is in the right lower quadrant of your abdomen. Usually the area is tender when touched or when pressure is released. Things which are jolting like walking or coughing can increase the pain. You likely don’t feel like eating. Keep reading >>>.

As appendicitis progresses you could experience nausea, vomiting, loose bowel movements, constipation, a fever or chills.
