Abdominal pain what : Get plain Xray of abdomen. If still with pain get CT abdomen. But more likely it is related to your menstrual cycle. Fever or nausea and vomiting with abdominal pain is more specific for acute appendicitis. However it is not improbable to have an appi during your menses. Seek immediate medical attention if pain has not resolved.
