The doctor will also do a blood test, urine test and imaging tests to rule out and detect appendicitis.

The common symptoms of appendicitis include.

Pain in your lower right belly or pain near your navel that moves lower. This is usually the first sign of appendicitis.
Loss of appetite.
Nausea and vomiting soon after belly pain begins.
Swollen belly.
Fever of 99-102 F.
Can't pass gas.

Appendicitis begins with pain near the belly button and then moves to the right side.

The pain is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, fever, and chills.
