Cause for sharp pain in the stomach?

I have got a dull kind of sharp pain in the lower right of my stomach, kind of near to my belly button. I have had it before but quite a while ago, and I can t remember if I have had the feeling more than once, I haven t told anyone about it before, because it usually doesn t stay long.

Thanks for your query.
Your telling more of symptoms wold have helped me to think about a diagnosis.
As per your history of a pain at a spot is more indicative of appendicitis unless proved otherwise.

I would advise you to get a course of an antibiotic and see the results. You should get a relief within 48 hours.
If there is no relief the best way is to get an ultrasonography and if required a CT scan of abdomen. And treatment according to the report.
