General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Such a pain in abdomen that has persisted with other symptoms of weakness, pain on pressure indicate for the following;
Take your daughter to the Doctor or ER for clinical evaluation, examination and investigations of blood, urine and stool. Ultrasonography of abdomen and CT scan if needed. All these will lead to a proper diagnosis and thus will help for a proper management.

If the cause is medical, like gastroenteritis, a course of an antibiotic, Metronidazole, probiotics, symptomatic and supportive management will help for the cure. If the cause is surgical, like appendicitis, diverticulitis and so on, then there is a need for surgery, Further, a surgical opinion will help to decide and get implemented.

I hope this answer helps in decision making.

Take care.

With regards.

I was fine this morning and had breakfast however right after lunch I felt a tiny sharp pain in my lower right side abdomen almost right below the belly button. I wear a belt to work which made it worse and I felt bloating. I also got my period yesterday. Anyhow I started feeling more tight around my lower abdomen towards 2 pm. I took off my belt at work and walked home. On the walk home I felt my back as if it was being pulled apart and my legs started to feel weaker. I got home and felt a little chilly and jumped in bed I tried to close mg eyes and sleep. I slept very little but I rested. Now I notice as I lay on my back that when I breath in fully a feel a pain in my right lower and abdomen and when I put pressure on it with my hand I feel pain again. Not severe but enought to worry me as its something that s never happened before? What are your thoughts on this?

Hi i am a 33 yr old female, 5ft 10 in height and weigh 12 stone. I am generally of good health up until approx 3 years ago when i had an abnormal smear cin 3 but had it removed and since then have been fine. I have suffered for a long length of time with pain in my lower abdomen which Drs have put down to ovulation pains. I have recently had bloods taken for inflammation, blood count, liver function and these all came back normal except blood count which receiptionist stated came back as if i was suffering from mild viral infection and i have to go back in a months time for a check. I have been for an ultra sound today and my ovaries appeared fine however when scanning mu kidneys the lady took some time on the right side and i observed her measuring what looked like a white shadow and saw a few dark spots. She did not tell me anything re kidneys and stated that they would be in touch within a week. I am really worried now and thinking allsorts especially kidney cancer??? I do not spoke and never have, I have never had high blood pressure i am very active and have a good veggie diet with lots of proteins by only down side is i do drink a bit of wine.
