Can be appendix inflammation.

Hello,Thanks for the query.
The classic symptoms of appendicitis include Dull pain near the navel or the upper or lower abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen; this is usually thefirst sign Loss of appetite. Nausea or vomiting fever chills may soon after abdominal pain begins.
Intially you should go for an ultrasound abdomen to rule out appendicitis.
A stool test should be done to see anh protozoal or bacterial infection.
However initially inflammation of appendix should be ruled out,
