Having Pains At The Right Side Of The Abdomen? - See Potential Causes

A lot of people sometimes complain of having pains at the right side of their abdominal cavity without knowing what would have been the cause of it.

We will be evaluating the six most possible cause of having such pains in this article. 

Meanwhile, you need to get your problem evaluated by a doctor who would be able to tell you what causes these pains which can wax and wane with time.

Abdominal pain could mean a number of things. As there are a lot of vital organs that are there in the abdominal cavity.

Depending on where the pain happens it could be attributed to a number of different ailments. If you are feeling a nagging pain on the right side of the abdomen it could mean the following:

  • Appendicitis
This is the most common cause of pain in the right side of the abdomen. If your appendix becomes inflamed, it causes appendicitis. It is important to know the signs of appendicitis, because it can be very serious if left untreated. 

Apart from the pains, an inflamed appendicitis can lead to nausea, vomiting, loss of Appetite, bloating, fever. 

Appendicitis could cause your appendix to burst, if left untreated which could be fatal. Treatment could include antibiotics or an appendectomy, which is surgery to remove your appendix.

  • Constipation
Pain due to constipation can arise on the right side of the abdomen. The other accompanying symptoms could be having fewer than three bowel movements in a week, producing stools that are hard or have lumps, a blocked feeling in your rectum among others. 

Constipation can be treated with over the counter medication. But if it becomes chronic then the cause of constipation needs to be evaluated. Once the cause is treated the pain will subside by its own.

  • Stomach Ulcer
An ulcer can develop on the lining of the stomach esophagus or small intestine if it gets damaged due to acids in the stomach. Possible treatments for stomach ulcers could include antacids or antibiotics depending on the diagnosis.

  • Gallstones
Small, hard deposits of digestive fluid in the gallbladder called gallstones can give rise to pain in the right side of the abdomen. Common signs of gallstones include pain in the back, cramping, nausea, vomiting and indigestion.

Note that these are just some of the potential causes of pain in the right side of your abdomen. Talk to your doctor to get a proper diagnosis and plan a treatment to feel better.
