2. Pain that Gets Worse Rapidly
When the pain moves from the bellybutton to the lower area of the abdomen it can become extremely intense. Many patients describe this abdominal pain as they have never felt before. Appendicitis can cause pain that is severe enough to wake them up from sleeping.
This pain can increase in intensity very quickly, within just a few hours. If you are experiencing severe pain in the lower right-hand side of your abdomen, seek medical attention as soon as possible as it is likely your appendix is inflamed and could burst at any moment.
