I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

Your present symptoms of upper right side abdominal pain, low grade temperature and past history suggest it to be a gall bladder attack (gall bladder inflammation / cholecystitis / Gall bladder stone). The attacks at different time may be different in intensity and severity. You should go to your doctor or urgent care clinic / emergency room for the evaluation. You would need an ultrasound, a CT scan, a chest x-ray (occasionally a pneumonia may have same symptoms, so that need to be ruled out) and blood work.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
