See your doctor: Cause of pain must be diagnosed before it can be treated. Take a laxative if it is due to constipation.

How bad is it?: If severe, go to er asap. Is the pain on the surface or deep in the abdomen? Does it come and go or change with coughing? Does it move? Does it radiate anywhere else? What makes it worse? Activity? Eating? Did u injure yourself? Is it improving or worsening or the same.Other symptoms? Fevers? Chills? Change in bowel movements? If not severe, make an appt with your md.
