    First of all, if you have any indication that your appendix burst, there is no way, and there should be no reason to try and make the pain go away! Dont take aspirin, dont do anything but go to the doctor! Appendicitis is an infection of the appendix and if left untreated could be fatal!Now usually there is only one sign of a ruptured appendix, a sharp or gradual severe pain in the abdomen! In most cases the pain will cause near immobility – in which you will have a lot of trouble moving around! Some people have higher thresholds of pain, so if you notice a consistent pain in your side that stays longer than a cramp would, you should probably have it checked out!Good news though! The appendix has no known function to the body, so a surgeon can pop it right out of you, and since around 1 in 15 people get appendicitis, its a pretty common procedure!
