Our expert says:
Speaking of experience: appendix pain starts over the navel and then gradually spreads to the right lower abdomen and it gets progressively worse with time, so much so that you can't walk straight up when you have it. You feel nauseous and feverish and if someone touches your abdomen you jump! Your blood test would show a high white cell count. Ovulation pain (mittelschmerz) can also cause a similar type of pain in the right lower abdomen but tends to be there for a while and then disappears. You won't have fever with mittelschmerz. HOWEVER, an appendix infection is not always predictable, so if the symptoms persist, rather go for a follow up examination
