Brief Answer:
Hello. This may be a gall bladder problem

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Depending on whether the pain is in your upper right quadrant or the lower right quadrant, this could be either a gall bladder problem or appendicitis.

You need to see a doctor right away for an exam, blood work, and a ct scan of the abdomen. You might need surgery either to remove your gall bladder or your appendix.

You should consider this an emergency.
