There are many causes for abdominal pain in women, including diverticulitis, ovarian torsion, pelvic inflammatory disease, kidney stones, appendicitis, salpingitis. You should go to the ER and get an abdominal ultrasound/CT scan.

Hi, it could be rupture of corpus luteum or ectopic gestation. Is your menstruation regular? When is your last time menstruation? If it continues, go to the ER ASAP.

You should go to the hospital right away!

OMG! How could you endure the pain for 24 hours! For me, I always get abdominal pain and discomfort after taking antibiotics pills. Have you taken some medications yesterday?

The abdomen involves not only the digestive tract but other vital organs including the large intestine, stomach, appendix, kidneys, liver, and gallbladder.

Abdominal pain is a common symptom that can be caused by something as simple as a stomach virus or as serious as a ruptured aortic aneurysm. Don't take any chances if something doesn't seem right or feels "different" than your usual tummy ache. Get it checked.
Most pain in the abdomen won't be severe and will usually resolve with little treatment. An upset stomach, for example, can cause pain for an hour or two until your digestion normalizes. Similarly, abdominal cramping may be related to bloating and gas, while a generalized pain that is uncomfortable but not particularly severe is most often due to indigestion.

Many of these conditions can easily be treated with over-the-counter antacids or other medications.

On the other hand, an abdominal pain that is localized on a certain spot may be the sign of a problem with one of your organs.As with your stomach, the pain may be transient, but if it is sharp, persistent, or worsening, it is usually a good idea to have it checked out.Such as:Pain accompanied by bloating that lasts for more than two days
Pain accompanied by unexplained weight loss
Pain accompanied by diarrhea that lasts for more than five days
Pain accompanied by fever
Pain accompanied by a burning or painful sensation when urinating.
