thank you.
have you any aggravating factor like after taking meal or relieved after defecation or in empty stomach?
any history of passage of loose stool ?
the pain may be due to chronic calculus cholecystitis,ch.pancreatitis,diverticulitis,PUD,non ulcer dyspepsia or some form of malabsorption.
you may take pantoprazole 20 mg 12 hourly.
if it is progressing then go for an USG or consult a gastroenterologist.

pain in upper abdomen in upright posture localized in right half at 74 in a diabetic definitely calls for attention .get an ultra sound scan of abdomen done .there could be a mass under the diaphragm , in liver. possibility of fatty liver also needs to be ruled out. gall bladder pathology should also be considered .
