how old are you?

pain below your right ribs can be from gastritis inflammation of your distal stomach or even duodenal stomach ulcers

eating fatty foods, alcohol, spicy foods, tomato sauces, fried foods, oily foods, big meals can cause excessive stomach acid and this can lead to gastritis and duodenal ulcers.

severe constipation can cause pain in the right side sometimes

gastritis can frequently cause nausea.

sometimes a viral infection called viral gastritis can cause nausea and upset stomach and lack of appetite.

medications like maalox, mylanta, zantac, tagamet can help decrease stomach acid often
