Brief Answer:
Tenderness in abdomen should be investigated asap.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Sudden pain in abdomen that wakes you up must be severe enough. This added on by the continuation of tenderness on abdomen is suggestive that you should be clinically evaluated by a Doctor, preferably a General Surgeon asap.
Hence I would advise you to rush to the ER so that a proper clinical examination and additional investigations like X-ray of the abdomen in standing position, ultrasonography, CT scan of abdomen, tests of blood, urine and stool can help further in confirming the diagnosis.
Tenderness in abdomen is a sign that indicate a possible reason that may need urgent medical or surgical attendance and intervention if needed.

This is not to scare you but to get the proper diagnosis as soon as possible.
If nothing serious is found, you are relieved of the stress and if something is diagnosed a proper management can cure you well. Late diagnosis a a lost opportunity.

Please get all this done and give me the feedback.
It is better not to try anything at home and do not take anything orally till diagnosis is confirmed or till your Doctor.Nurse advises you so.
