Hi there.
It does appear as if there is some mass obstructing the region or irritatig the diaphragm on that side. Perhaps your best bet would be to get an upper abdominal ultrasound study done & pinpoint the said problem & address it therafter.
Cheers & do hope this will have pointed you in the direction to take & wish all well with you & great health always!
