Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Conditions that can present with right sided lower chest or upper abdominal pain can be due to the following conditions :-

‎1. Hepatitis, or ‎
‎2. gall bladder inflammation (Cholecystitis ) OR gall stones (Cholelithiasis). ‎
3. Pneumonia of the Lower lobes of the Right lung.
4. Musculoskeletal pain
‎5. Inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, appendicitis, colitis, etc. ‎
‎6. Right sided renal stones. ‎

Since the pain is of very severe nature, you might benefit by getting tested for the above conditions ‎‎by tests including -a complete hemogram, Chest X ray, urinalysis, blood tests (liver function tests), A liver ultrasound or a abdominal CT ‎scan. ‎

Hence for a proper diagnosis and specific treatment, you might consult your primary care physician, who will guide you accordingly.

In the mean time you can try medications like Advil, which can help to control the pain.

I hope this helps.
