Pain in the lower abdomen after eating nuts. No fever. History of ovaries removed

Approximately 1/2 hour later I developed sharp intense pain in my lower right quadrant o my stomach appromately 1inch lower than my navel. The intense sharp pain has subsided however I am still experiencing pain and tenderness when I press on the area and it still feels like comes in waves just much less intense. Any clues! No fever , no flu symptoms

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! The first thing I will think with your symptoms and signs mentioned is an attack of appendicitis if there is no history of its removal earlier. For this, you have to consult an surgeon and get clinically examined who may suggest you a few routine investigations along with an ultrasound abdomen.
The next possibility is food poisoning. You may get to have loose stools/vomiting if the infection is severe.
Next possibility is a pelvic inflammation. For this you have to get yourself examined by your gynaecologist.
The ultrasound will rule out if there is any calculi in your urinary tract which may also give rise to such symptoms.
A diagnostic laparoscopy is an option if everything else fails to diagnose the problem.
Please consult your doctor and get investigated. Good luck.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This can be caused by nuts because it can irritate colon or make hard stool and cramps. Also you can be allergic. SO just avoid food that makes your feel worse. ALso it can be gallbladder or stomach attac unrelated to nuts. If your symptoms persist you should visit gastroenterologist for endoscopic tests.
WIsh you good health.
