what causes abdominal pain?

I am having abdominal pains that are not constant and range from a throbbing to a sharp stabbing pain. It's usually in my right side, above my hip and closer to my bellybuttong, but is also low on the left side. For the past two days, I have also had a fluttering feeling near my bellybuttong. I initially believed it all to be menstrual cramps, but it has continued even past my menstration.

Hi.
hank s for your query and god history you have provided.
This looks to be colitis and a 5 day course of an antibiotic , metronidazole and anti-spasmodic tablets will cure you.
If there is no relief consult a Gastroenterologist to get a clinical examination and investigations.
Proper treatment will cure this.
