Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have fever/ cough/ breathlessness along with pain?
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
you should go for chest x ray on preliminary basis.
If all these symptoms are present then there is possibility of pneumonia; you have to take complete antibiotic course along with muscle relaxants and analgesics.
If all these symptoms are absent, then there is chances of muscle relaxants.
You should take complete antibiotic course.
Take care,

i think you should go for an ultrasound for confirmation ,it looks like gastritis with gall bladder inflammation.
you should avoid heavy ,oily food.
you can take medicine like omeprazole 20 mg twice daily with any antispas medicine like
dicyclomine 10 mg thrice daily
