Welcome to health care magic!

I have gone through your question and it is almost clear that you do have antral gastritis, as you have pain on right side n middle back. You have told that it still continue to pain even after repeated medicines. There is no information on other blood tests or ultrasound abdomen or medicines you had tried.

Had I been your treating doctor I would go for a course to treat you for H Pyroli infection, which is common cause for chronic gastritis. Along with that you will be helped by taking some proton pump inhibitors like Esmoperazole twice a day for few days.
I would recommend that you get an ultrasound abdomen and if possible an endoscopy of stomach and upper duodenum, as you may have a duodenal ulcer, which has a similar presentation. duodenal ulcers are commonly missed, and they may occur along with gastritis causing chronicity.

Apart from medicines, you should follow
- simple, preffrably bland diet for some weeks
- eat small frequent meals which include some non spicy/non oily stuff
- avoid/ stop tea, coffee
- go for more of fruits and salads
- if you have burning, you can take sips of slightly cold milk on and off, it neutralises the acid in stomach

I really understand that you are tired of taking medicine but I want to ensure you that it is a fully treatable condition.
Please do the investigations ( at least you will be free of the fear that you have anything major). and see a gastroenterologist, I'm sure you will become fine.

I hope that answer helps you.
Feel free to ask more queries.
