  • If the pain localizes in one side you should see an M.D. right away in case it is appendix or an ectopic pregnancy.Otherwise it sound like endometriosis, a common complaint when a bit of uterine lining gets into the abdomen. You may also have irritable bowel syndrome which is treatable.None of the above should interfere with normal activity if you get medical attention. I have had them all and am a pretty healthy 80 year old.Good luck
