Yes, ask the doctor: If the pain has been there for some time, you should ask your doctor. It could be nothing or it could be a sign of any number of conditions including rib problems, lung, gall bladder, kidney or other problems. It is worth checking if it has been there for more than a few days. ...Read more

Not interpretable: You have not mentioned the duration of symptoms. Shingles can present like this before rashes appear. Referred pain from the spine or a pinched nerve in the back or rib cage can also cause such pain. You need to see your pcp urgently. ...Read more

Several things: It could be your gall bladder, liver problem, a kidney stone or infection, a rib muscle sprain / strain or a infection / inflammation in the right lung or lining of the right lung. If you have nausea, loose bowels then more likely gall bladder. If you have cough or breathing problems, then the lungs may be culprit. Blood in the urine or urinary frequency suggests the kidney stone. See a doc! ...Read more

Exam needed: This discomfort could be arising in the intercostal muscle or nerve of the rib cage,a rib,the liver,gall bladder or right lung base. An examination by a physician is indicated and appropriate tests will be ordered. I don't think that we can attribute this discomfort to your taking methamphetamine which I feel would cause more generalized symptoms. ...Read more
