Hello. Thank you for posting.

There are many reasons for feeling pain on the right side of your upper body. Common causes of pain under the right rib cage are gallstones or gallbladder infection, kidney stones, liver disease, appendicitis or gas. Pains in your chest could be connected with pneumonia, injury to a rib or chest muscle or inflammation in your breastbone. Although not all types of pain under your right ribs are life-threatening, you should have a doctor check out an unexplained pain, especially in the chest.
