Thank you for the query.

Such pain can also appear with stones present in bile ducts, pancreas inflammation, peptic ulcers. Nausea can be caused by antibiotics prescribed for H.Pylori. Moreover, in this area there is a transverse colon located and sometimes such symptoms can appear due to some lesions in this area. Sometimes urinary tract infection or stones can also gove such symptoms.
I suggest you to have some more tests. Blood work, liver tests (AST,ALT,GGTP,AP), amylase, lipase, urine amylase, urine analysis, FOBT (fecal occult blood test) if you are below 50, or colonoscopy if you are above 50; upper GI endoscopy.

Hope this will help.
