This can be caused by abdominal muscle pain from over use; abdominal visceral pain from appendicitis, constipation, gas, ovarian cyst, or tumor; dissecting abdominal aneurysm; a disorder of the lumbar spine; or a bladder infection. Persistent pain is an indication to see a health care provider for a more thorough history & exam. ...Read more

The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain.

It may not be serious (i can't know your frame of reference at age 16), but when pain is as severe as you report, don't delay in telling your parent, seeking medical evaluation, & getting treated. ...Read more
