Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
A gastric pain usually is located in the centre below the sternum. Occasionally though it can present as right upper quadrant pain too. The symptoms you reported seems to be a gastric related problem - gastritis or ulcer.
Yes, gall bladder
pathology and liver pathology also needs to be ruled out to confirm before truly associating with the aforementioned causes. Ultrasound
scan done several years ago is not conclusive to relate to the current problem. You need to repeat it again to note for liver status, size of gall bladder and whether or not a stone in it (gall bladder). In addition, I also would like to get gastroscopic (upper GI endoscopy) to done.
hardly present with upper abdominal pain
, and so this may not be related.
I would suggest you to consult a gastroenterologist
to streamline the tests and confirm the possibility. In the mean time avoid high spicy diet. Proper and regular diet with destressing measures are useful measures - as far as treatment is concerned.
Hope this answers your query.
