I have been having pain in the lower right side of my back and towards the side of my abdomen. It all started when I had a stomach ache, which faded but I have had some constipation lately. I went to the doctor he checked, he applied pressure to my appendix area and the area my gallbladder was in and there really was no pain so he said he thinks it may just be a muscle, Its still hurting though and I still have the constipation as well as gas I think because I haven't really been able to release it. the pain on my side is about right below my rib cage towards my back more so than my front though, Any ideas of what this might be?
