Exam needed: Persistent right sided abdominal pain and/or tenderness should be checked by your physician as soon as appendicitis is still the most common cause of such symptoms.

RLQ pain: As an er dr in a female i think of 2 more emergent things up front. Appendicitis which could include decr appetite and nausea. Or pelvic inflammatory disease/pregnancy in fallopian tube, intermittent ovarian torsion, or ovarian cyst. If you aren't pregnant it isn't an ectopic pregnancy, torsion is typically severe and can cause nausea, if you aren't at risk of stds it isn't pid, cyst is likely.

Appendicitis: Although there are many things that can cause abdominal pain, anyone with right lower abdominal pain needs to be evaluated for appendicitis right away. Your doctor, or er doctor will evaluate you, do blood work, and possibly a ct scan. It's not something that can wait.
