Signs and symptoms
Appendicitis can cause a variety of symptoms that may change over time. The most common early symptom is an aching pain around your navel that often shifts later to your lower right abdomen. As the inflammation in your appendix spreads to nearby tissues, especially the inner lining (peritoneum) of your abdomen, the pain may become sharper and more severe.
Eventually, the pain tends to settle in your lower right abdomen ¾ near your appendix at what's known as McBurney point. This point is about halfway between your navel and the top of your right pelvic bone. But the location of your pain may vary, depending on your age and the position of your appendix. Young children, especially, may have appendicitis pain in different places.
If you apply gentle pressure to the area that hurts, it will feel tender. As you release the pressure, especially if you do it suddenly, appendicitis pain often will feel worse (rebound tenderness). It will also tend to get worse if you cough, walk or make other jarring movements. This is particularly true if the inflamed appendix is touching the peritoneum — the silk-like membrane that lines the inner abdominal wall and enfolds the intestines. The pain may lessen somewhat if you lie on your side and pull your knees up toward your chest.
In addition to pain, you may have one or more of the following signs and symptoms:
Nausea and sometimes vomiting
Loss of appetite
A low-grade fever that starts after other signs and symptoms appear
An inability to pass gas

What causes lower abdominal or pelvic pain?
All women feel discomfort or pain in the lower abdomen below the navel from time to time, for instance, before or during menstruation.
In many cases it can be difficult to identify the cause of the pain, but noting certain features will help you and your doctor come to a likely diagnosis.
The most common causes are a urinary disorder such as a bladder or kidney problem, a bowel problem or a condition involving the reproductive system - the uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Type of pain arising from the urinary system
Pain from the urinary system can indicate such conditions as cystitis (inflammation of the bladder), inflammation of the collecting system of one or both kidneys (pyelonephritis), kidney stones or uncommonly tumours.
Typical symptoms of infections are a burning sensation when passing urine and a need to empty the bladder more frequently. In addition, pain travelling from the back and around to the front might suggest a kidney infection or kidney stone.
The pain associated with kidney stones may be particularly severe. The presence of blood in the urine raises the possibilities of infection, kidney or bladder stones or even a bladder or kidney tumour. Both benign and malignant tumours can first make themselves noticed in this way. The presence of blood in the urine always requires further investigation and should be reported to your doctor.
The duration of the pain will further help you and your doctor to make the correct diagnosis.
Type of pain arising from conditions of the intestines
The bowel can give rise to a wide variety of symptoms including pain.
Constipation and diarrhoea can be painful in themselves, and the change in bowel habit usually identifies the pain as coming from the bowel. Pain from the bowel is often described as colicky in nature. This means that the pain or discomfort comes in waves with little or no discomfort in between the pain.
Bloating or swelling of the lower abdomen may be present in many intestinal (bowel) conditions including irritable bowel syndrome.
The passing of fresh blood or altered blood (black motions) from the back passage should be reported to your doctor as investigation is usually necessary.
Type of pain arising from conditions of the reproductive organs
Pain might originate from the uterus (womb), Fallopian tubes or ovaries. It is usually felt in the middle of the lower abdomen, above the line of pubic hair as far up as the navel. Occasionally, the pain is more to one side, which is more typical of a pain coming from an ovary.
There might be discomfort or even pain during intercourse (called dyspareunia) felt deep within the pelvis.
Pain originating from the uterus is usually worse at the time of a woman's period (dysmenorrhoea).
Examples of conditions of the reproductive organs giving rise to pain include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, fibroids and problems related to the early stages of pregnancy such as miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.
In any case of sudden, severe, unexplained abdominal pain your doctor should be contacted.
Sorry gave you a novel, but these are a few of the possibilities!!!
A good idea would be to have it looked at by a GP (general practice) doctor; it may be a hernia. It may or may not be serious enough right now, but it sounds like it is and should be watched. Your doctor may recommend a pain killer for night time use if you ask for it. Don't wait to have it checked out though. It might also have something to do with diverticulosis or diverticulitis and your intestines. It often acts up on the left lower quadrant, but can still be a pouch that's formed elsewhere in the intestine. Pain's no fun so go check it out a.s.a.p. If it is a hernia, and surgery is recommended, just be aware that today hernia surgery can be done in many cases, laparoscopely. That means that instead of making a 12-14 inch cut in your abdomen, 3 smaller incisions are made instead and the surgical repair is made through these. There's much less chance of getting infected and the recovery time is also a whole lot quicker with a whole lot less pain.Only a surgeon can tell if you're a candidate for this type of hernia repair though.
Hope this helps.

I'm guessing you're female? Do you have any other symptoms other than the pain? could be fibroids, gas(yes even for 3 days), that particular area could be intestinal but you would have other symptoms(constipation,diarrhea), endometriosis(need other symptoms) Appdendix would be very low on the right sight I mean down by the pubic bone.

It could be your appendix. Don't hesitate! Go to ER. If your appendix bursts then the toxins get into your system and you could die. Don't wait for answers, go find out at the hospital.

jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
to work double on them. The best approach is this:
1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).
2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
an excellent exercise, you can do it in front of your TV: sit on a
stool, and put your toes under something (piece of heavy furniture,
for example). In your hands hold a little dumbbell. Please, make sure
that it is not very heavy, start with one kilo, for example, or you
will damage your back and spine! Slowly move the upper part of your
body back, until it's parallel with the ground. Stop for a second and
move it back to the sitting position. Repeat ten times. Every week add
to the number of repetitions. You will see the results in a week,
guaranteed! You will see or feel under the fat - if you have any - six
pack and muscles. Dumbbells do wonders. Much better than these
crunches - I came up to three hundreds and there was no results AT
ALL. With the dumbbells you will see it in a week.
