Thank you for the additional information and for your patience :)

Keeping in view your age, sex and pattern of presentation of symptoms the pain in the area you have mentioned can be a simple muscle cramp, early pain of appendicitis, hernia or gastroenteritis.

All of these pains most commonly improve upon lying down and get worsened upon standing.

However since you have not mentioned any nausea, vomiting or fever and have declared to have no swelling in the area it seem unlikely to be hernia or gastroenteritis.

Considering your issue with constipation it may be a muscle sprain.

However the other most likely cause may be early appendicitis which merits a visit to your doctor on the earliest.

So at this place in time the best plan of action would be to see your doctor, for a physical examination and investigation if needed, on the earliest.

Hope this helped you understand the situation :)
