Mostly pain below the rib cage on the back side is called aa pain in the lumbar region is mostly due to the renal colic. It may be due to decreased renal function which can be caused by any sort of obstruction within the renal parenchyma or in the tract of kidneys that include renal pelvis ureter or urinary bladder. It also can be caused by infection of the urinary tract. You should have investigations for the renal function that includes Renal Function Tests, Ultrasonography Kidney Ureter Bladder that shows the kidneys and tract of kidneys and an Xray Kidney Ureter Bladder. If they show some abnormality than have Renal scan for GFR estimation.
If all the tests are normal pain is muscular in nature that can respond to pain killers such as Diclofenac sodium and muscle relaxants such as Muscuril.

In present situation if you are having sever pain take some pain killers such as Cap. Campex along with combination of gravinate to avoid vommiting.

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms are very characteristic for urinary tract stones or urinary tract infection. With stones the pain starts suddenly, with infection gradually. Burning when urinating and frequent urinating can also appear. It is advisable for you to have urine analysis and abdominal ultrasound to see if there is no ureter obstruction (what can lead to kidneys failure).
Hot baths should bring some relief. You should also increase mineral water intake.

Hope this will help.
