Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I thank you for posting your query here and I am definitely going to help you out..

Please note..

1. I am hoping, you are talking about abdomen.
If yes, then pain in the right lower abdomen is most commonly due to inflamed appendix. Called appendicitis.

2. But, there are various causes for pain in that area..

3. If you are diagnosed with Chrons disease, then again pain could be non specific due to inflammation or other disease process going on there..

4. Would suggest that you get an Ultrasound Abdomen and Pelvis.
This will help.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care,
Dr. Manjunath Metri
