See a doctor: Cannot tell here without a physical exam. Cannot tell what you may have - viral illness, kidney stone, urinary infection, appendicitis, muscle strain, etc. Needs a medical evaluatuon.

Appendicitis: Possible. Appendicitis can be associated with pain in right lower quadrant. Sometimes fevers nausea. The pain worsens with time. If it started saturday then you would be ready to rupture and in severe pain by now. So you would need to go to er. It could also be constipation, kidney stone, etc... If you are not better seek out a doctor. Appendicitis is treated by general surgeon in hospital.
