There are MANY causes of SEVERE RIGHT sided pain where you describe. Gallbladder disease (cholecystitis and/or stone) may be the cause OR kidney infection/abcess/stone is another possiblity. A simple ultrasound and blood tests can help with the diagnosis. If the pain 'wraps to the stomach' then pancreatitis or ulcer are other possiblities so it is time to GET SEEN. Hope you are better soon!

You are young so chances of serious heart conditions are lower. This could be indigestion, gas, asthma, or a virus in the ribcage. If you are in that much pain though, you should get checked out.

Found a lump on rib cage 8 months ago.now 3. Painful when agitated, didn't hurt for 5 months until last week when I pulled my left side muscle.

Please get checked

by your doc. A lump can be serious and when treated properly can lower your anxiety. Ambiguity generates anxiety. Peace and good health.
