More info?: Is it sharp or achy? How long does it last? Anything make it better? Any fevers? Does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery ? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Did you injure yourself? Pulled muscle etc? Has anyone done any studies? Need a bit more info? Possible causes: gallbladder? Pneumonia? Ge issues? Muscle strain? Kidney?
