Brief Answer:
Can be due to many causes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The symptoms of lower abdomen pain,more on standing could be due to one of the following conditions:-
1. Tubo Ovarian cyst
2. Any pelvic infection related to the intestines or colon (Enteritis Or Colitis).
3. Urinary tract infection - may have associated dysuria and frequency.
4. Renal calculus.
5. Muscular pain.
You might benefit by visiting the Emergency Room so that you can be evaluated with a panel of blood tests and a ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis OR a CT scan to diagnose the underlying condition and initiate necessary interventions for proper treatment.
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:
Can be renal stone or ovarian cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The pain can be due to ovarian pathology or a renal calculus. As the pain is persistent for four days it is best to get an ultrasound scan done to find out the cause.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
