Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Upper Right sided pain can be due to various possibilities as:
1)GERD or Reflux Oesophagitis -- It should be relieved by intake of antacids.

2)Gall bladder Stones or even inflammation called Cholelithiasis/ Cholecystitis. They are commonly associated with belching, indigestion.

3)Pancreatitis as it may cause upper abdominal pain which is worse when bending over or sitting. Pancreatic enzymes like serum amylase and lipase are elevated in that case.

4)Another possibility is of any kidney stones but it may present as sharp pain radiating to the back.

5)Hiatal hernia may present as pressure like sensation in the abdomen.

It is difficult to comment regarding the exact cause without clinical examination and investigations.Since other tests have been normal you can request for an Endoscopy and HIDA scan to rule out any ulcer/hernia and gall bladder issue.Kindly visit a Physician for evaluation.

Take care!
