I am a 16 year old girl, I have abdominal pain in the lower right area and sometimes severe pain (sharp pain) and sometimes below my belly button. I can't really describe my pain, it makes me dizzy though and sometimes I'm enable to walk straight. I'm concerned with this pain since I've been having it for quiet a while now, hope you can help me..

Abdominal Pain Answer A44268
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The abdominal pain and symptoms that you describe could indicate underlying problems like PID, infections, pelvic adhesions, worsening or rupture of ovarian cysts, torsion in ovarian cysts (if cysts are big), endometriosis, endometrial cyst rupture, ectopic pregnancy (if you are sexually active and pregnant), etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Observe the symptoms for any further worsening or recurrence. If the symptoms have been persistent, or if they have kept worsening/not improving, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the symptoms and the worsening dysmenorrhea that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
