Get sharp pains on the right of chest intermittently. Cause and measures to handle it?

Hi, I keep getting sharp servier pains on the right side of my chest now and again, just below my rib cage. Now the pain tends to last a good 10 minutes but has lasted 20 to 30 minutes at times. Now when I do get the pains, there are times I end up dropping to the floor as they are excruciating. What could be the cause of the pains and which is the best way to handle it?

General Surgeon 's  Response
As the pain is below your rib cage on the right side,liver and Gall bladder diseases have to be ruled out.
Ultrasound abdomen will diagnose them,particularly Gall stones.
Till then,please take Anti inflammatory drug along with PPI like Rabeprazole . You also add Smooth muscle relaxant like Dicyclomine.
If you come back after Ultrasound report,i will clarify further.
Wish you good health
