The most common causes of right side pain where you are describing would be liver or gallbladder. Have you had your gallbladder checked? Are you a big drinker? Healthy weight? If you drink alot or are overweight, sometimes the liver can swell from fatty tissue and press up against your ribs.
All my blood tests, ultrasound, and other tests always come back fine too. Let me know if you go to the doctor and find anything out. I am waiting to see a GI specialist myself.
The liver can accumulate fatty tissue like other parts of our body, and if it gets too swollen it can press up against the ribs and nerves in our abdomen which causes the pain. We can't actually feel the liver itself, but we can feel the surrounding areas.
i have exactly the same symptoms and have experienced these for 2 years plus. I too have had multiple scans, abdo and pelvis MRI, ultrasound and CT as I have other health issues but Drs can not give me a diagnosis. I am due to see my consultant again this coming week so I was going to ask again what this might be. I know I have Gastritis so maybe it could all be related.
