Diagnose appendicitis before your doctor – injury lawyers in West Wittering

Although appendicitis is relatively easy to treat, and if taken care of quickly will cause no further damage to your body, you need to get it diagnosed as quickly as you possibly can. Appendicitis, left untreated, can cause your appendix to rupture, which can lead to further illness or even death.

When you visit a doctor, they should be able to make the diagnosis quickly, but if you are able to recognise the signs of appendicitis first, then you can let your doctor know that this is what you think it is, making your diagnosis much faster, or even take yourself straight to hospital for the appropriate treatment.

Stomach Pain

Appendicitis begins with stomach pain. This pain will get worse and worse as time goes on, and not seem to get any better at any point. Eventually the pain will be so bad that you will have to see a doctor or go to the hospital, but there are signs of appendicitis from the start.

  • If your stomach is too painful to touch
  • If your stomach feels firm and swollen
  • Inability to stand up straight or walk properly
  • Pain shooting from navel to area above appendix within a day of the pain

Other Symptoms

It is worthwhile paying attention to the other symptoms you are suffering from, as these will let you know whether you are suffering from appendicitis or something more generalised. The other symptoms of appendicitis include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Back pain
  • Fever, but with chills

What To Do

You may not want to see a doctor unless you are sure that you are suffering from appendicitis, and in this case it is simply a waiting game. While you wait for your symptoms to develop one way or another, there are some things you should and shouldn’t do, as they may aggravate your symptoms.

  • Don’t take laxatives
  • Avoid pain medication
  • Eat soft, bland foods which won’t irritate your stomach
  • Rest
