In brief: Doctor to 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. Having gas may or may not be related to the discomfort (lactose intolerance will cause gas). A hernia can also be the problem.
