Abdominal pain on right side of body

I have been having pain in my abdomen area on my right side for a few months now. It almost feels like it did when I was pregnant and the baby would push on my side. The only difference is that this pain is persistent and doesn t go away. It is very uncomfortable and wakes me at night sometimes. What are some of the things that can be causing it.

Thanks for writing to us.
Persistent pain on the right side of the abdomen can be due to a liver pathology or a renal problem. Gall bladder problems also cause pqain on right side of abdomen. Other causes can be intestinal dysmotility or a pelvic pathology. To know the exact cause investigations like ultrasound scan are necessary.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
