Do you need to be tested for HPylori? Do you have a bed board? Have you made some lifestyle changes like diet and exercise to curb the ulcer? Have long have you been taking Prilosec? Do you need an EGD? Doctor can helo guide the treatment..

In brief: It may

Depending on where your ulcer is, it may cause pain in the RUQ, and even a gatric ulcer in the LUQ may cause "referred pain" to the other side.
Be sure to follow-up with your Dr. and definitively, an EGD (a scope of the upper intestine) would diagnose exactly where you have an ulcer if any at all. Best wishes.
