There are many (many) things that can cause this kind of pain (lots of organs on the right hand side of your body - not to mention all the muscles :)). If you can zero in on a location for that pain you might want to try the Check a Symptom program found on the right hand side of many Health Central pages.  It may give you several options. 

If you're having a pain or symptom that has become chronic and is not getting better over time, however, then its time to see a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck!
