Brief Answer:
Gallbladder stones or infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service. I read your query and here is my advice.

I think this sore and tenderness below rib cage may be related to gallbladder stones or inflammation.
I think you should do a total blood count and blood chemistry especially liver chemistry.
Also an ultrasound is advisable to check gallbladder.
