Top Symptoms of Appendicitis

Pain Sudden

Pain. Sudden pain in the solar plexus area or above the navel is the most typical first symptom of the acute form of appendicitis. An abdominal pain without specific localization is also possible during this period. This stage is characterized by the pain of varying intensity (strong or weak) and changing nature (continuous or intermittent). Further pain shifts to the topographic projection of the appendix. The pain has a constant nature, a moderate intensity that increases during coughing, movements or change of body position in space.
