HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR APPENDICITIS
Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, a finger-shaped pouch that projects from your colon on the lower right side of your abdomen. The appendix doesn't seem to have a specific purpose.
Appendicitis causes pain in your lower right abdomen. However, in most people, pain begins around the navel and then moves. As inflammation worsens, appendicitis pain typically increases and eventually becomes severe.
Although anyone can develop appendicitis, most often it occurs in people between the ages of 10 and 30.
Causes- A blockage in the lining of the appendix that results in infection is the likely cause of appendicitis. The bacteria multiply rapidly, causing the appendix to become inflamed, swollen and filled with pus. If not treated promptly, the appendix can rupture
Symptoms- Signs and symptoms of appendicitis may include:-Sudden pain that begins on the right side of the lower abdomen, Sudden pain that begins around your navel and often shifts to your lower right abdomen, Pain that worsens if you cough, walk or make other jarring movements, Nausea and vomiting, Loss of appetite, Low-grade fever that may worsen as the illness progresses, Constipation or diarrhea, Abdominal bloating
The site of your pain may vary, depending on your age and the position of your appendix. When you're pregnant, the pain may seem to come from your upper abdomen because your appendix is higher during pregnancy.
