See your MD: There are many causes of abdominal discomfort, most are benign, such as gastroenteritis, colic or gastritis. On occasion this can be due to other reasons such as stones, kidney or gallstones; or from inflammation, such as pancreatitis. Infections such as appendicitis, diverticulitis, urinary tract infections can occur. Gynecologic reasons can give pain, rarely malignant masses can cause pain.

Abdominal pain: Without more information about the pain (location, quality, timing, associated symptoms, etc) and your personal past medical/surgical history, it's hard to say exactly. However, if you're having "severe" abdominal pain, especially with fevers, nausea, or vomiting, you should see a doctor very soon.
Dr. Kyon Hood

See a doctor: Abdominal pain can be caused by way too many things to advise you on what to do for your present condition. You need to see your doctor who will take a complete history and perform a physical exam before recommending any diagnostic and/or treatment plans.

Abdominal pain.: Pain in general is a sign of something wrong. Abdominal pain specifically can be a sign of something severe, such as gallbladder or ulcer problems, or mild, such as gas pains. The problem is that the description of the pain alone is not enough to sort it out. You should be seen ASAP. If the pain is that severe, go to the ER. Call 911 if you can't drive and have no one to take you. Good luck.
