9 Symptoms of Appendicitis
Appendicitis pain often occurs in the lower-right side of the abdomen. The first sign, however, is typically discomfort near the belly button, which then moves to the lower abdomen.
Some people, including children and pregnant women, may experience pain in different areas of their abdomen or on their side.
The pain also will get worse if you move your legs or abdomen; cough or sneeze; or are jarredduring a bumpy car ride, for instance.
