Brief Answer:
Can be gall bladder pathology.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

Most likely the pain is due to pathology of gallbladder.
It can be due to-
Acute cholecystitis - which is inflammation of the gallbladder that develops over hours, usually because a gallstone obstructs the cystic duct. Symptoms include right upper quadrant pain and tenderness with pain on same side of shoulder.
Or it can be due to Acute cholecystitis which is istone in gallbladder.

Suggestion-
Go for a Ultrasound abdomen initially to find out the exact cause.

Hope i was helpful.

Regards!
