I have read your query.
pain below right side of rib can be due to liver disease.
I hope I was no injury.
I will advise you ultrasound abdomen and pelvis for confirmation.
you may need blood investigation like CBC, LFT and renal function test.
Check your blood sugar levels also.
Pain due to muscle spasm will relive by muscle relaxant and physiotherapy.
Another possibility of pain can be due to duodenum ulcers,endoscopic evaluation will help you.
