I am having lower right abdominal pain its lasted about a week. The pain only occurs when my bladder is empty. After I drink a little bit it goes away. I am exhausted, weak, and trembling; no fever has occured. It is a dull crampy pain, I also am urinating more often and I am bloated. What could be going on?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of urine infection or a UTI. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and urine analysis done. Get started on treatment as indicated. Drink plenty of water. Get your partner also treated simultaneously.
If pregnancy is suspected, you should consider waiting and watching for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
