Right side: Right sided abdominal burning distress can be due to abdominal muscle irritation/inflammation or strain, gall bladder disease or appendicitis especially if right lower abdominal tenderness is also present. The umbilical hernia is a less likely cause unless it is partially incarcerated. If symptoms persist see your physician or gastroenterologist for evaluation and advice.
