4. Press on your abdomen

If it’s too painful even for you to touch, especially in the lower right area, consider going to the emergency room. You may also feel tenderness in your lower abdomen when you press on it.

Look for rebound tenderness. If you press on your lower right abdomen and feel a sharp pain when you quickly release it, then you may have appendicitis.

Note any firmness in your abdomen

When you press on your abdomen, is your finger able to sink in a bit? Alternatively, does your abdomen feel unusually firm and hard? If you notice the latter, you might be bloated, which is another symptom of appendicitis.

5. Try to stand up straight and walk

If you can’t do this without severe pain, you might have appendicitis. While you should seek emergency care immediately, you may be able to ease the pain by lying on your side and curling up into the foetal position.

Appendicitis occurs when your appendix becomes inflamed and fills with pus. Don’t ever delay getting medical attention if you suspect appendicitis. Appendicitis is considered a medical emergency and a ruptured appendix can be fatal.
