In brief: Suspect 4 appendix

This sounds suspicious for appendicitis or cholecystitis (gall bladder) or nephritis (kidney).

In brief: Don't wait

Go see a doctor and find out.
Especially if it is getting worse, not better, or if you have any nausea/vomiting. We'd rather tell you it's nothing than have you stay home with a bad appendix.

Get to a Dr. or ER asap and be evaluated.
