Why do we get referred pain?

I was reading about this the other day and understand the difference between visceral and somatic innervation, but don't understand how this theory with dermatomes relates to periumbical somatic referral in appendicitis. Why is a whole dermatome not affected?

What does it feel like to have Appendicitis?

This may be of little interest, or may already have been done, but I wondered if anyone on here would be willing to describe their own appendicitis? We all know the classic textbook history, but patients don't read textbooks, and they also don't use medical, precise language. OHCM suggests a lifetime incidence of 6%, so Meducation must have a few doctors or medical students who can accurately describe the pain of appendicitis. How did you feel? What associated symptoms did you have? Let's see what we get!

Ultrasound for Pediatric Appendicitis - HQMedEd.com

Appendicitis is the most frequent surgical emergency in children, peaking in incidence at 9-12 years of age.  Left untreated, obstruction of this recess can lead to perforation in 36 hours with increased morbidity.  Because delayed diagnosis may impart long term consequences, it is also one of the most frequently successful malpractice claims against emergency physicians (Ma 2008).

Why we do what we do: Ultrasound for appendicitis

Why we do what we do has returned – this time focusing on the use of ultrasound in appendicitis, which has become the test de rigeur these days in most Pediatric Emergency Departments. I won’t belabor the point on how important it is to correctly diagnose appendicitis. It peaks between ages 9-12, and can lead to perforation within 36-72 hours. Missed appendicitis is also one of the biggest causes of filed malpractice claims.
