Severe pain in lower stomach area when I cough

I am going to visit a GP tomorrow if the situation doesn't improve, but does anyone have any pointers as to what may be wrong with me. All of last week I was confined to bed/infront of a fire because of a viral chest infection, eg headache, intense feelings of coldness, wakin up with my bed clothes/ night clothes covered in sweat etc. They symptoms have all but gone, still feel slightly chilly, have a slightly sniffy nose, and a cough that comes from the chest. All food and drink tastes different, and I have lost my appetite. All this I guess is the results of what I had last week.
However when I cough I get an intense pain in my lower stomach abdomen region, between my belly button, and pubic area and about 3*4 inchs to the right. It also hurts slightly when I stretch, but the pain is almost unbearable when I cough. The only relieve I can seem to get is when I put my head between my knees and cough, this deadens the pain considerably. Is this just a simple muscle strain, maybe a reaction after not eating anything for 4 days, or is it something more serious.

Re: Severe pain in lower stomach area when I cough

when you mentioned that it was in the lower right hand side, my first thought was that it could be the appendix. but it doesn't sound like that's it. if it were the appendix it wouldn't affect you only when you cough.

it could be just an injured abdominal muscle. it's good that you will get it checked out though, better safe than sorry.

i too am suffering from abdominal discomforts, and have seen four doctors, but according to them i am fine.
