Right side adominal pain and swelling, could it because of having kidney stone ?

Hi there for the past 2 years i been getting an annoying pain under my right rib cage, it hurt more after food and uncomfortable to sit down. I got that worried that i went to docs and she said its constipatipon due to stress. Sometimes the pain radiates to my right pelvic area. Ive had blood tests to rule out infection and another doc sent me for a ultra sound as he thought it could be kidney stones , but all came back clear. I have since noticed my right side of stomach to swell. is doesnt hurt to touch and i cant feel any lumps.I find it hard to pass stools most the time but i have no blood when passing. At night i seem to feel a lot of acid in my stomach. I have been to A&E several times and back and forth the docs no end of times and they all say its nothing but its making me tired and feeling ill. I constantly feel tired . I am 23 yr old female and dont drink or smoke. Please can someone answer as its affecting my day to day life now and im really worried.!!!!!!!

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to get an upper GI endoscopy done to rule out gastritis and peptic ulcer. It could explain most of the symptoms. But if you are having fresh blood in stools sometimes it can be commonly due to constipation induced haemorrhoids. Do Yoga, Pranayam to relieve stress. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Eat soft, bland, cool diet like Yoghurt and see improvement. Drink plenty of water. Exercise by brisk walking for 40 minutes a day. Better to get examined by a Surgeon and receive appropriate treatment after required testing.
