What causes pain in the mid to lower right side of the body?

I have acid reflux and barretts the past 6 months, however, I ve been experiencing pain in my mid to lower right side that radiates around the same area in my back. Also, a year ago, I was taking one 150 mg ranitidine, but last month,the gerd became constant and I now take ranitidine twice a day. Any thoughts on what could be causing the pain on my right side?

It may be due to severe gastritis arising out of acid reflux.

As of now, you can take antacids like omeprazole or pantoprazole for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult a gastroenterologist and plan for an endoscopy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Respected Sir, My wife,Mrs. Madhumita Banerjee,aged approximately 26 years,is bedded,feeling severe pain in lower parts of the body.Details of the case is furnished below: History:1.Went through severe jaundice on March 09 2.During cesarean delivery of child,was applied spinal anaesthesia on January 11 3.Had a fall from a running bike on October 11,which didn t result in any immediate after effect. CASE HISTORY: Symptoms started showing up one and a half month earlier,when she felt unbearable pain in right side of waist.Mainly she was having problems while trying to move after rest.General physician suggested COMBIFLAME,what she continued for almost 3 weeks,but it was not any good except for some temporary reliefs. Having some medical suggestions,with a Lumbo Fractal Digital X ray report(which was absolutely fine),we moved on to an Orthopaedic.He advised her Lenox Plus ,which reduced the pain of the right waist,but the pain shifted to the thigh area(from groin to upper thigh). On intimating the doctor,she was prescribed Zerodol MR .It reduced the pain to some extent,but the left ankle showed signs of swelling and black patches.Then she started taking Altraday(1 tablet per day) as per medical expert s advice. As now,the left feet and right knee are showing clear signs of swelling,she is feeling unbearable pain in those areas along with in hip joint.The pain has got no burning feelings and grows unbearable as she tries to move from rest. Meanwhile,as per medical advice,a blood culture is done,which is showing only haemoglobin(10%) and ESR(38),fluctuating out of normal limits.Complete USG of lower abdomen is also perfect as per latest reports received. Your diagnosis and advice in this critical situation will be of great help.Please mention if any more tests need to be done for better scope of diagnosis in future.
