Pain under right ribs towards back. Hot, cold flashes. Urine dark, smelly. What could it be?

I ve had pain under my right rib, towards my back. Slight (but not annoying) pain in my centre chest . I ve been like this for nearly a week now but for the last 4 days I ve been throwing up (dark brown what looks like coffee or tobacco) not much but also been off food for the last 3 days so assume it s to do with not having anything in my stomach . I could be too cold and shiver with my teeth clattering and soon after be extremely hot and sweating. I have a bad pain in the back of my head and the right side close to the temple, I can touch my chest with my chin . My urine has been dark with a bad odour. I went to the doctors and he told me I had a urinery infection but could possibly be bleeding from the stomach. He didn t seem too bothered like most doctors I see these days, faster you re in, faster you re out. I ve been feeling like this for a few days and really want to get rid of it ASAP but need proper advice. Thanks. I m a 22 year old female 5 5, 8st 9lb Mild drinker, mild smoker

Hello dkelly900
Welcome to HCM
Pain under right rib referring to back, expectoration of red or brown colored sputum, dark urine etc. may be due to a variety of causes like-
- it may be presenting feature of Tuberculosis, as red colored sputum, chest pain may be presenting symptom. It may be sign of Pneumonitis due to any infection. So get your blood checked for infection and ESR.
- it may be due to hepatitis due to alcohol induced which may be complicated to gastric bleeding, but as you are not a heavy drinker there are less chances. gall stones may be possibility.
So best is to visit a good doctor and take your expert opinion.
thanks take care
