    It's unlikely to be appendicitis unless you have a congenital anomaly of your organ positioning, but there are several possibilities as serious as appendicitis, such as diverticulitis or renal stone. It's difficult to tell you what it may be without knowing your age, medical and surgical histories, and doing a thorough physical exam. I would suggest seeing your physician as early as possible, and reporting to the ER if you spike a fever and develop severe abdominal pain and rigidity.
