Gas pain is usually relieved by over the counter medications,but appendicitis pain it will not.Only surgical intervention can relieve the appendicitis pain.

Appendicitis pain usually starts around umbilicus and then moves towards right lower abdomen near the inguinal region.

GAs pain can be relived by flexing your leg over the abdomen which helps to pass some gas.,but appendicitis pain will increase with time as imflammation increases.

Only doctors can tell you by examining and looking for the tenderness at Mc burneys point whether you have an appendicitis or not.

So if you are in bad pain just see your doctor to rule out appendicitis
