What should you do if your lower right abdomen hurts? Well, in any case if it hurts – there is a problem. But, you should be at least prepared to what to expect, right? And that is something we are going to talk about today.

There are many health problems connected with abdominal pain, the trick is to figure out what it is – not to make it worse. For example, if pain comes from the right side, that may mean either there is some issue with your lady parts or it is appendicitis. But, if it hurts somewhere within your rib cage that may be caused by some problems with liver, diaphragm or bowels.

Another important factor is the way you feel the pain. If it is sharp and unexpected then you should wait no longer and call the ambulance – better safe than sick.

When you feel pain in your lower abdomen, it may also mean that you have hepatitis. But in that case it hurts more than usual right after you eat.
