Hello dear Olivia , hi

Warm welcome to
I have evaluated your query in details .

* There are so many reasons for this pain as acute intestine colic or else .

* Primary guidelines for better recovery

- first of all relax , avoid panic and agony which will worsen the pain .
- take deep breaths as much as possible .
- prefer light , soft diet .
- tablet dicyclomine or drotaverine will give primary pain relief .
- consult later your doctor for need of ultrasound examination of the
abdomen & pelvis for the final diagnosis .

Hope this will help to clear your doubt .
Wishing you fine recovery .

Regards .
