Pelvic pain, indigestion. X-ray showed ovarian follicles. Any ideas?

Hello, I went to emergency last Saturday because of piercing pains in the lower right pelvic area. Also I had terrible indigestion for 5 days. The Hospital did some x-rays to say my appendix is fine( I thought it was my appendix) he said there were some follicles on my ovaries but no need for surgery. Now almost a week later the indigestion is back and I have sharp pains under my right lower rib cage? I was juicing for 3 days when these pains began. Please if you have any ideas could someone help? Thank you for your time.

Hi.Pain due to appendicitis will be in the lower part of abdomen on right side. I think Follicles in the ovaries are seen in Ultrasound abdomen.Pain under the right lower rib cage may be due to Gastritis/Stomach ulcer.Please avoid spicy food.take regular diet.Consult a Gastroenterologist for upper GI endoscopy if your pain is not relieved by Proton pump inhibitors.Take care
