Customer Question
How can I tell...

How can I tell if I have an appendicitis?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Only a pain in my lower right side.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I noticed it about three hours ago. Nothing seems to make it better or worse. It's just a constant, low level pain.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of. Well, maybe, I am lactose intolerant and I ate a a lot of cheese and milk products recently.

Although the best diagnosis can be made on ultrasound but you can suspect appendicitis if the pain starts around umbilicus and moves to right lower quadrant, it has rebound tenderness that means if you press and release your right lower abdomen quickly then the pain increases on release, pain also increases when you lift your leg and bring your thigh towards your abdomen. These are simple tests you can do yourself to have an idea plus you feel nauseated as well. However if the pain is severe then it is better to get it examined by your doctor.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
