I have been having pain in my lower right abdomen and hip area for the last 5 or 6 days. It varies between dull and achy and sharp and it comes and goes. I don't seem to have a very good appetite and after I do eat I also get a little bit of cramping (not sure if it's related). Every once in a while it will feel like the pain moves along my hip bone into the back side of the hip bone too. Any ideas what this could be? I have a doctors apt lined up but it's still over a month away.

Hello and welcome to e health forum. ‎

You seem have severe lower abdominal pain as well as tenderness. Such severe pain usually occurs ‎with conditions like infection or inflammation in the affected area. ‎

Some causes can be PID, pelvic or abdominal abscesses, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, colitis, Urinary infections or a ‎renal stone.

You might consult with your doctor for a examination and tests including a Urinalysis and a ultrasound ‎or a CT scan. This would help to diagnose the cause of the pain. ‎

In the mean time, treatment with medications like Advil or Naprosyn, would be very helpful.‎
