Periton irritation: Inner layer of the abdominal wall so called peritoneum somehow get irritated in that area due to different reasons such as appendicitis, diverticulitis , PID, endometriosis . See an urgent care doctor for a physical exam, including pelvic examination and possibly use imaging studies and laboratory tests to properly diagnose your condition.
