In brief: Various causes

Your symptoms suggest muscle strain of the abdominal wall muscles, or perhaps a hernia.
Have you been doing any unusual lifting or other exertion that may have cause the strain? If the pain were do to a problem with your internal abdominal organs you would likely have it at other times of the day. If the pain gets worse or persists see your physician for a precise diagnosis.
