Symptoms of Appendicitis

  • Published on Jul 25, 2016
  • Appendicitis is a serious condition, yet many of us don't know just what to watch for or how it can happen. We meet a doctor who had an up close experience with appendicitis, and learn just what the appendix is.

    So I'm 11 and I had a pain in my right side down like under my tummy but I never had pain around my belly button and I never vomited! But earlier I went pee and like rubbed it and prayed after that it was gone! It don't hurt now! What is this?

    Is it appendicitis, food poisoning, or stomach flu?

    I just called my doctor (I'm sick) and she told me to get to the emergency room right now to get checked for appendicitis, but my mom says I'll be fine- I don't have my drivers license yet so I can't get myself there e.e

    Edit: So it ended up being something else with symptoms of appendicitis (I went the day after that happened) and I'm OK but that was still pretty scary :/

    I had a glass of milk and suddenly strong stomachache. I had chills and the stomachache increased and was fierce. I vomited about 5 times. I released all food and drink. Called 911 and by the time I was in hospital, moaning in pain! That's it. Good luck

    Interesting that there was not one white male doctor featured in this video. I suppose they must have all surprisingly packed up and left the profession. Isn't that interesting...

    Is the Appendix a useless organ? I heard plenty of people that they said it is useless. But, the pain sounds horrible! I gotta stay alert.

      Blood of Bloodclan it’s more common when you’re older but it’s rare for young people like me, I’m 15 so that’s rare

    The appendix's main purpose was to help the body absorb chlorophyll in greens and to break down tough plant material. However, peoples diets drifted away from mainly vegetation to more meat and processed foods, thus rendering the organ pretty much useless

    Had mine removed less than a week ago. I left the hospital the same day I had surgery. I've had no time to rest because I've been too busy filling out forms from work for medical leave and financial forms from the hospital and doctors. I'm uninsured so I can't afford to stay in hospital any longer than necessary. I do feel better so I guess I'll just have to wait until I can get some vacation days to rest. On second thought, I can't afford to take vacation days. Oh well!

    You don’t KNOW what the appendix does???
    How does anyone trust doctors? They’re clearly just practicing and get things right sometimes.
