Had a extremely sharp pain that got worse when I took a breath it's located on my upper right abdomen around my ribs. Pushing on it hurt worse.

Gallbladder: Location suggest like you may have gallbladder disease. This is something that it is important for you to discuss with your physician as soon as possible.
