• Abdominal pain is something that we all feel from time to time. It can be caused by something as simple as gas or be an indicator of a much more serious condition.

    Gas Buildup

    The pain in your abdomen could be just gas that needs to pass. Consider if you ate something that might have made you gassy.


    When was your last bowel movement? You could be constipated and depending on how long it has been, it could get painful.


    Your appendix is located in your lower right abdomen, so if the pain is moderate to severe and doesn't go away after a few hours, take care. If you have a fever with the abdominal pain, head to your doctor or the emergency room.

    Ovarian Cysts

    If you are female, lower right-sided pain could mean ovarian cysts. This pain can be moderate and achy or suddenly sharp and stabbing if the cyst ruptures.

    Other Female Conditions

    There are a host of other conditions that could cause this located pain, especially if you are pregnant. Keep your doctor informed of any pain during your pregnancy.

    Other Illnesses

    Some of the other illnesses that cause abdominal pain are: colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, Crohn's disease or colon polyps, just to name a few. Some of these are very serious, so listen to your body and see a doctor if the pain doesn't go away.
