Possible conditions causing this
So abdominal pain is notoriously difficult to diagnose without laboratory studies and imaging studies such as a CT Scan. This being said, I can offer a few thoughts.
The type of pain you are experiencing is termed 'colicky' pain- pain that comes and goes suddenly.
To complicate matters abdominal pain is perceived differently than pain in other areas of the body because of the way the nerves to the abdomen are wired.
Based on your symptoms the cause could literally be anything from a hernia to problems with the ovaries to an intestinal problem.
