Appendicitis!

What seems to be an average tummy

ache can turn out to be more severe and become life threating

if we do not pay attention to symptoms.

 It is important to notice the main symptoms of appendicitis.

 It starts with a cramp type abdominal pain in the umbilical area, which increases rapidly in intensity. Within 24 hours of having the pain, the migrates to the inferior right quadrant of the abdomen. After the pain, there might be a manifestation of nausea, vomit and a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.  This pain increases with walking and coughing. 

If you present any of these symptoms, do not waste time, contact your doctor immediately or seek medical attention right away.
