Hello

I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.
It can be gallstones.
This can become very serious if not addressed.
Go to urgent care now, or the ER.
Get an exam and an ultrasound.
Clot to the lung is possible....needed EKG.
Heart is not likely, but need EKG.
Penetrating ulcer is a more remote possibility.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
