I am an 18 years old. I have interminent lower right abdominal/ pelvic pain. The pain varies between sharp cramps and pressure. Sometimes my lower right abdominal area also feels cold. The pain increases when bending over, going up or down stairs, walking, running, laying on right side, and during stressful situations The pain decreases when taking warm bathes. This pain as been off and on about a month and it occurs almost everyday. I had my appendix removed. My guesses are IBS or bladder stones.

Welcome to e health forum.

The cause of your symptoms could be due to various conditions including renal stones, intestinal infections or inflammatory conditions like appendicitis, enteritis, or benign functional conditions like irritable bowel syndrome , constipation or indigestion related. In females, ovarian cysts or pelvic infections also can be a possible cause.

UTIs usually can present with abdominal pain, but they are also associated with classic features like burning micturition, fever, etc.

The exact condition needs to be diagnosed with a proper physical and if required imaging studies like sonography or CT scans.

Hence it would be best that you consult with your doctor and seek a proper opinion.
