Lower right abdominal pain, severe gas, cramps. Causes for discomfort?

I had an episode of lower right abdominal pain yesterday morning that was so severe I nearly fainted. It felt like horrible gas. After I defecated (normal stool ) I felt better. This morning it happened again, but was not as severe. A few moments ago I woke up with another episode of pain. This time it was severe. The pain is not sharp, but again feels like really bad gas. It was almost as if I was cramping because the pain would subside a bit then get worse. This lasted for about 10 minutes. Now I am sitting up and I feel fine. What could be causing my discomfort?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You are having horrible abdominal pain daily in the morning since 2 days. You are getting the pain intermetently any smooth muscle pain is spasmodic in nature and will be like this.
The cause in the right lower abdomen could be due to urinary tract infection, stones in the urinary tract, or infection of the ascending colon etc. Due to severe pain you may feel the defecation sensation and passage of stools.
If it repeats you consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. In the mean while you can use anti spasmodic tablets for temporary relief .
Wishing for a quick relief .
Best regards.
