I Woke Up With A Sharp Pain On My Right Side And I Still Have The Pain. Now What Does This Mean.

It was like 8:00A.M. and i had a sharp pain on my right side and i still have the pain on my right side. It is like close to my hip bone.

Answer

Sharp pain on your right side can be from something as simple as indigestion, gas or constipation or it could be due to something more serious such as appendicitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, kidney stones, etc., etc.

If you have bloody stools, are vomiting, are running a high fever or are in serious pain see a doctor immediately. More moderate flu-like symptoms and milder pains are not as urgent a matter but you'll have to see a doctor to find out what's going on. Good luck!
