It's not the appendix if the pain is on the left side as the appendix is located in the lower RIGHT side (quadrant) of the abdomen.
It could be any number of things from cramping due to dehydration (since he's feverish), low potassium levels (causes cramping), to an intestinal obstruction.
Take a look at the following chart and see if any of the signsand symptoms fit your child, then call your doctor.
