Abdominal discomfort: This discomfort may be muscular or be due to an inflammatory process within the abdomen. Possibilities include appendicitis, right and/or left sided diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel disease. Is there any tenderness on pressing portions of the abdomen? Any bowel or digestive disturbances? If symptoms persist, you will need to be examined by a physician and if symptoms are severe,go to the ER.
