Brief Answer:
Can be muscular pain.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

A pain in the right side under hip that is going down can be a muscular pain. it seems to be a mechanical back pain, more related to posture while working.

For pain and spasm to go you have to do back exercises to relieve the spasm associated with this. Doing hot fomentation and applying muscle relaxant gel will also be helpful in relieving the spasm.

Correct your posture while sitting. Take frequent breaks during your work.
Lie on a hard bed. Avoid forward bending and lifting heavy weight.
You can take anti-inflammatory drug like Ibuprofen to relieve pain.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow-up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
These are least likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Intra abdominal causes like gas or appendix are least likely causes for such a pain. This is likely to subside with rest and mild pain killers.
Hope my answer is helpful.
