Tenderness in lower right abdomen/hip area

Hi,

First i am 24 years old, 157lbs and 5'9. I began excersizing recently and after a week or so I am experiencing this dull/tender discomfort in my lower right abdomen. It feels like a muscle (hip flexor) perhaps, but just feels like I have something present there (like a ball of air, or just a ball, or a stone). I have this weird feeling there, especially when I sit - this discomfort does radiate to my lower back if I sit for too long. When I am walking I don't feel anything at all. I have no other symptoms, just this mild discomfort...no sharp pains, no cramps, no vomitting, fever or diarrhea and my bowel movements are the same...

I've had this appear a long time ago (4-5 years), I went to a doctor who had done a Contrast CT scan on me and told me I had nothing there and voila the discomfort went away after a few days.

Now its back.. question is.. did I just simply pull a muscle? is it something abdomen related? I really don't want to do another contrast CT scan as i had nightmares after it. Also I had an endoscopy done which revealed that I have small gastritis and perhaps an ulcer.

Thank you very much.
