Hello there...I can understand your concern. Such abdominal pain could be due to many reasons like gastritis, pancreatitis, kidney stones, cholecystitis, gall stones, pelvic inflammatory disease, hepatitis. You will require detailed clinical examination and further investigations including ultrasound abdomen and pelvis. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
