Dull and constant pain below rib cage, shaky and nauseated. Is it period pain?

Hi, I have a dull constant pain in my right hand side, directly below my rib age, I have a strong desire to sleep and feel shaky and nauseous. I thought at first it was severe period pain as I am menstruating but it is far too persistent and has been constant for 2 days now. Thanks for any advice. I am seeing my gp tomorrow but wondering if I should go to the emergency room and get an ultrasound done. Thanks.

Thanks for writing your query.

Pain in the right side of upper abdomen is usually due to either liver or gall bladder.

You should get yourself investigated for the following :-
1. Complete Blood Count (CBC)
2. Liver Function Test (LFT)
3. Serum Amylase
5. Serum Lipase
6. Ultrasound upper abdomen

You should avoid spicy and oily foods.
I hope this is helpful to you.
