Pain on righthand near midrif

Dr Bets, I have a very sharp pain at odd times on the right hand side of my body near the midrif. It feels as though I am grabbed by a hand on that area, and I have had it while lying down at night and while active. I have to keep quite still for it to subside and it lasts only a short time. I am a rather overweight lady with a big tummy, but otherwise I am quite healthy with normal blood pressure. I also get a sharp stingy sensation at other times around the midrif, which I think is in the colon area. I can only describe it feeling as if stung by an insect or something pricking sharply on the inside with an almost itchy feeling! What on earth can this be?
