Moving can be exceedingly painful. While the condition is painful in itself, and while the pain intensifies as the condition progresses, the pain while the body is at rest is very much less intense than the pain when a person attempts to move. Sitting in a moving vehicle that jerks as it moves along the road can create flashes of agony centered on the appendix, and throbbing through the entire abdomen. Even the action of moving the limbs or walking will intensify the pain. A relatively intense movement, such as sneezing, will result in minutes of intense agony. However, it is observed that the pain tends to reduce to the levels usual to the infection when the body is at rest again.
