  • I know it feels like a knife is stabbing you in the side. Hopefully, yours is not appendicitis. It hurts even more when you try to move.

  • Lie down and began "walking" your fingers from the ride side just under the ribs down to the right hip bone. If you come to a place that is painful and makes you pull up in pain, that's prob. appendicitis,so you would need to see a doctor asap.

    Be sure and always check your children for this the same way, when they run a fever and you can't find an obvious reason. Also, for kids, while they are lying down and you've checked their abdomen, pull their head forward. If their neck is stiff and painful to bend the neck forward, (along with fever), you would want to contact a doctor asap for meningitis. Just a few things my doctor taught me. :)
