In brief: Location

Typically, gallbladder pain is in the upper abdomen (middle to right side), and radiates to the back.
Crampy, comes and goes, onset 30' or so after eating. Appendicitis is in the belly button, then migrates to the right lower abdomen. It is progressive and unrelenting. Hope this helps!
