Exam needed: Persistent pain in the right lower abdomen, especially if there's associated tenderness, is characteristic of acute appendicitis which is the commonest cause of persistent abdominal pain. I recommend getting examined by a physician in the hospital emergency room where prompt attention and testing are available.
