5. Inability to Pass Gas
Because appendicitis is caused by an obstruction in the digestive tract, it can also make a person unable to pass gas. This can result in a feeling of bloating, as the gas is trapped inside the stomach. This can also cause swelling in the stomach because of gas buildup, leading to discomfort or even severe pain.
Appendicitis is a treatable condition. In fact, most people who had appendicitis do not experience any serious problems or side effects afterward. However, it is important to seek treatment before appendicitis gets worse.
If left untreated or ignored, appendicitis can cause serious or even fatal health complications. So as soon as you notice any of the possible symptoms of appendicitis, be sure to check in with your doctor.
