Why would I feel pain around the lower abdomen on the right side along with weakness in the legs?

I ve had what I thought was the flu but along with those symptoms I ve had a burning type pain in my right ovary area then today I had a shaky trembling all over the body. My legs were really wobbly and weak all of a sudden. That lasted at least 10 min.

Hi,

Noted your history of having pain in right lower abdomen and weakness in legs that lasted for 10 minutes.
The commonest causes can be related to the following:
Appendicitis
Right ovarian and tubal problems.
Colitis.
Enteritis.
These things can occur due to bacterial or viral infections.
Hence I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Consult a Doctor for an actual examination as this gives a lot of information on clinical basis.
To be supported by investigations of blood, urine and stool.
Ultrasonography of abdomen to be confirmed by CT scan of abdomen.
Any problems with intestine cause electrolyte imbalance and thus gives weakness as you have had.
Take plenty of fluids.
Electrolyte solution may help with weakness.
A course of an antibiotic and supportive medications may be needed as per the final findings.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T Chandrakant,
General Surgeon
