In brief: RUQ discomfort
Your pain may originate on either side of the diaphragm to produce your symptoms.
Cough (dry or productive, with blood?), pleurisy, fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Do the symptoms "refer"elsewhere (to back, shoulders, chest, neck, jaw, arms)? Recent trauma, herniations? What is your age, gender, do you smoke, have heart/lung issues, stones?

In brief: Yes among others
Would depend on when the attacks come, how long they last, etc.
Pulmonary issues (lungs) can also be considered. Get it checked. An ultrasound, chest xray and liver testing would be a good start.
