Hello and welcome to e health forum.

From the description of the pain alone, it appears it could be a musculoskeletal disorder or a intestinal spasmodic contractions. More history and a physical examination would be helpful to know the cause of your symptoms.

Tests including a ultrasound of your abdomen, might be nessasary for definitive diagnosis.

If the pain is persistant and intolerable, you might benefit by consulting your doctor for a examination and a proper interventions.

In the mean time, use of pepto bismol might help to control your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
