Thanks for writing your query.

It will be helpful if you give more information about-
1. How is your stool at present?
2. Any episode of nausea or vomiting?
3. Are you on any medicines?
4. What is the exact location of your pain - is it more on the right side?
5. What is the colour of your urine - whether dark yellow?

You can take antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg once a day before breakfast.
Cetrizine 10 mg once a day will help in relieving itching.

I would suggest that you should get some investigations done :-
1. Endoscopy.
2. Complete Blood Count(CBC).
3. Liver Function Test(LFT).
4. Blood sugar(Fasting and PP).
5. Ultrasound abdomen.

Treatment of your other symptoms can be planned according to the reports of above investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you. I will be happy to answer your further query, if any.
