Greetings, How long the symptoms are present? How frequently the pain is coming? Can you elaborate the precise site of pain, any radiation to other place & if so, where? Is there any aggravating or relieving factor or any relation to food? How is urine? Is there any area of tenderness? Are there other related symptoms? Was any test taken?

Thank you for the input. The pain at lower right side of abdomen can come from appendicitis (if not operated already). The pain level can vary. Urinary infection, or stone can cause pain here. Colitis or inflammation of intestines can cause pain. Sometimes pinched nerve or muscle cramps can cause it. I would advise to get her an examination by doctor who can run tests like urine & blood analysis. An ultrasound may also be needed if doctor feels necessary after clinical examination. You can give her tylenol to get some relief. Any query, please feel free to ask. It will be my privilege to assist you. Regards.
