Doctor :  
severe upper right side abdominal pain, gripping, with periods of very heightened severity, may spread to the back or right arm, and may be crushing.
Doctor :  
There may be associated vomiting, and pain typically lasts a few hours.
User :   Can the pain be because of gas

Doctor :  
upper right side abdominal pain can also be due to right kidney stones
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
gastric complaints can be a part of any of these other causes
Doctor :  
so the other characteristics of the pain needs to be looked upon, to arrive to a probable diagnosis
Doctor :  
and thereby appropriate treatment
User :   so what you suggest
User :   should i get USG done or something like that
Doctor :  
even constipation and right lower abdominal hernia can cause right lower abdomen pain
Doctor :  
yes, an ultrasound will be helpful to find the cause
User :   I am not having constipation
User :   also just as my history i did had the Right side hernia which i got operated in my childhood
Doctor :  
i will suggest you to get an physical examination done too along with the ultrasound examination.
User :   is there any possibility of it being croppig up again
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
usually it does not repeat
Doctor :  
but yes, if the abdominal muscles are weak again, then it may crop up
Doctor :  
and if the hernia gets caught in the tummy, then the pain starts
Doctor :  
This will usually present as a swelling in the groin or upper thigh on the right in this case, with lower right abdominal pain. or the swelling will be in the abdominal wall
User :   So should I go for physical check up right now or can i wait for few days since my parents are doctor i can always go to them in lucknow and then get checked from specialist in my native place
Doctor :  
There may be vomiting and bloating in the tummy to even outright abdominal distension with associated gas problem and nausea
Doctor :  
it will depend on the severity of your problem
Doctor :  
if the pain is severe, then you should get it checked immediately
Doctor :  
if it is not severe, then you can wait and see
Doctor :  
and in the meantime avoid spicy food
Doctor :  
drink lots of water
Doctor :  
and continue taking antacids like Aciloc RD which you are already taking
User :   sure doctor

for the pain take Tab Euspas one tablet, two times a day after food
