In brief: Appendicits
Evaluating abdominal pain is like solving a mystery.
There are usually many different possibilities, which can be narrowed down by asking the right questions, doing a careful examination, performing simple blood tests+/- radiology tests. Constant rlq abdominal pain needs to be approached as "appendicitis until proven otherwise" due to the risks of no treatment. Please go to an er asap.

In brief: Some possibilities
If one has very uncomfortable tummy pain, and is normally in good health, plus is not pregnant, the possibilities include: appendicitis (usually has fever), gall stones, kidney stone (very painful), constipation (crampy), stomach flu, etc.
.. Most people with "sharp pain", meaning more than mild pain, need a doctor's evaluation to be sure it is not appendicitis, which would need surgery.
