Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Pain in different areas and different times may be intestinal colic...
There is liver and gall bladder under the rib cage on the right side...
Lower down, it may from ureter, bladder, ovary, uterus and so on...
It is better to get examined and investigated - urine, stool, blood tests and ultrasound are generally done as a routine / to exclude most routine problems...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

For how long have you had these pains? Did they start today? The pain is better or worse when you eat? It could be menstrual cramps or a stomach condition. Per your description it should not be something serious. Please answer my questions so I can assess the situation in a better way. I hope you get better soon.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do you have a burning sensation in the epigastric region?
How is your appetite?
Is there any weight loss recently?
Are you passing stool normally?
Do you have burning urination?

First you should be examined to identify the cause of the pain. Further management depends on the cause.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
