Lower Right Side Abdominal Sharp Pain
My 15 year old daughter has right sided lower abdominal pain. It's sharp and she's been awake most of the night. She feels sick and has diaorrhea?
Doctor can evaluate: Lower right abdominal discomfort can be from many things. For pain there, appendicitis is always a concern (pain usually worsens over time, with fever coming on). If one is constipated for several days, stool can back up all the way to the right side, and cause discomfort or pain. Gallstones and kidney stones can also cause pain. One's primary care doctor or an Emergency Room doctor can check. ...Read more

The right lower side of my abdomen hurt really bad today. It's more like a stinging, sharp pain. It's brought on by nothing. What is it?
Mittleschmerz: Twenties female with sudden onset of unilateral lower abdominal pain absent fever and feeling ill likely released egg mid-cycle and having transient peritoneal irritation. This is normal. With fever and pain aroused by palpation halfway between umbilicus and front of hip then appendicitis needs to be considered.

I have been having a sharp pain in the lower right side of my abdomin. I was told that I might have abdominal wall pain. What exactlly is this?
Muscular Pain: The abdominal wall consists of multiple muscle layers. Like anywhere on the body, a pulled muscle can cause significant, lingering pain. Since we use our core muscles for most activities, it can be difficult to rest these muscles. Pain from the abdominal wall can be difficult to distinguish from "internal" abdominal organ pain; muscular pain tends to be unrelated to food & worsened by activity. ...Read more

I have a severe sharp pain in the lower left side of my abdomen, just behind or maybe in my rib cage. Is there something I can do at home to fix this?
No short answer:
I hope it is a muscular strain and can be helped by heatseveral times a day. In the rib cage would be more in the mid to upper abdomen. I do not like it being a severe sharp pain, if it is other than brief you should seek medical attention.
It could be diverticulitis (an infected pocket in the intestine) and it may be ruptured. ...Read more

When: Ther is not much on your left side like your appendix is on the right side. You are a bit young for serious diverticulitis but it could happen and that is on the left.

I've been recently been having pain in my lower abdomen area on the right side. It would hurt slightly throughout the day and sometimes would give me a sharp pain for a sec or two. Would you have any guesses on what it could be.
Difficult to say: The lower right side of your abdomen is where the end of your small intestine sits (your terminal ileum) and where your appendix is located. But without any other symptoms, it's unlikely to be either Crohn's disease or appendicitis. Your doctor may want to evaluate by obtaining some more history, a careful physical exam, and select blood tests. ...Read more

It is very unlikely that you are pregnant since it has been 4 weeks, you have had a period in that time, and you used protection.
Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area and right upper quadrant of the abdomen.
- stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down
- pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back
- liver/gallbladder - hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant
- intestinal - duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area
- kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs.
- gyne - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant.
And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on! So, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain.
Reasons to go to the er are:
- high fever
- bloody stool
- bright green or bloody vomit
- severe or worsening pain
- difficulty breathing. ...Read more
Go see a doctor: Depending on what makes the pain better or worse, when the pain comes, if it's sharp or dull, if it's associated with food or not, there are many different causes of abdominal pain. One of the most common causes of right lower abdominal pain is the appendix which requires emergent surgery. You would need an exam and possibly other testing to make the diagnosis. ...Read more
I have a sharp pain on my lower right side abdomen. It is not constant, but rather frequent for 2 days now. Even sharper when I breathe in.
An emergency!: When lower abdomen hurts when you breathe in, it is likely that you are developing peritonitis in that area. This can be cause by an appendix about to burst, or by an enlarging cyst on your right ovary. The former is an emergency, the latter can be serious, or just caused by an egg popping out of your ovary halfway between periods. Only medical evaluation can help tell the difference! Good luck! ...Read more
Started feeling bubbling under right ribs to the side front and back. Also an occasional sharp pain that comes and goes in lower right abdomen.
Fodmapa: bubbling is gas (air) taken in either from swallowing or from fermentation of sugars in the diet. The stomach and large intestine overlap in the vicinity you are referring to. Google low FODMAP diet (fermentable Oligo-Di-Monosaccharides and polyols). The most well known is lactose. Colon bacteria ferment the sugars and create gas and fluid. Gas distends the colon (sigmoid) and causes pain. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst on my right side that is 1.3cm big but why do I have a severe sharp pain in my lower right abdomen?
Doubt cyst is cause: A 1.3cm ovarian cyst is usually a normal finding. Small cysts are part of your normal menstrual cycle. They form as part of ovulation. Doctors who don't know why you have pain will sometimes tell you that your pain is from a small cyst like this but this is rarely true. I don't know why you have pain but I doubt it is coming from this cyst. Best wishes! ...Read more

You need an exam!: Without an exam, it would be foolish to try to diagnose this. Especially if these are new, acute events - take yourself to your doctor, urgent care or an ER. If they've been around for awhile, it's still very worthwhile to have an examination and find the right treatment if possible. I hope it goes well! ...Read more
