Hello and welcome to E health Forum.

From the history provided, it seems that your abdominal pain in the right upper quadrant could be due to gall stone disease. Gallstones, Gall bladder infections and liver disorders (hepatitis) are the most common conditions that present with pain in the right upper abdomen. Colitis can also be a cause.

It would be highly recommended to consult your doctor who can examine you and order a few blood tests and a ultrasound of the abdomen, which can help in proper diagnosis and treatment of your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
