Welcome to healthcare magic.

As you mentioned you have problem of abdominal tightness at right side that may be because of liver problem or other reasons.
Ultrasonograph is helpful for further diagnosis.
Consult a gastroenterologist for further diagnosis.
Detail history and investigation give exact idea about problems.
Start a treatment as per reason behind it..

I hope this will help you.
Get well soon..
Thank you.
