Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As per your description, it looks like Right sided Ureteric stone or Appendicitis. As the pain is radiating, it goes more in favour of Ureteric stone.
Please consult a Doctor if possible and get an Ultrasound abdomen which gives a clue.
As OTC medicines have not worked, diagnosis should be confirmed after consultation only.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
