Hello and thank you for your post on e health forum.

The symptoms of appendicitis are situated mostly on the right lower abdomen, and are associated with fever, nausea, etc.

In case you feel that you do have similar symptoms , you should consult a doctor who can get essential blood tests and a CT scan to confirm the diagnosis and then initiate the necessary treatment.

I hope this helps.
