Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The description of the symptoms can be detailed to give a more accurate reply.
Can you please answer the following questions?
1) Do you run temperature?
2) Since how long is the pain
3) Are you sexually active? Do you have unprotected intercourse?
4) Do you remember eating stale or rotten food?
5) Do you have this pain constantly at all the times or it comes and goes?
6) Any relation to food intake or passage of urine?
7) Is the pain colicky?
8)Is the pain so severe as to initiate vomiting?
9) Can you pinpoint the origin of pain with your one finger? Please try to describe the point of maximum pain.
10) Any history of constipation?

Pain abdomen which is acute that comes and goes seems to be intraperitoneal in nature. The following are the possibilities
1) Acute Gastrointestinal infection
2) Peptic ulcer disease
3) Gall stones or renal stones
4) Intra abdominal pathology like fatty liver

You should see a doctor if the symptoms do not reduce in 24 hours for proper investigations like ultrasound scan and some blood tests. Till then check if there is an over the counter antispasmodic available with your pharmacist. Take them after taking fluid diet, three times a day. For pain do a hot fomentation and take light easy to digest oil free food.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for your cooperation.
From your symptoms the pain seems to be due to gastroenteritis or pelvic inflammation. You need to have an ultrasound scan to rule out any serious pathology.
Kindly visit your physician for physical examination and proper investigations.
