Hi there,
Pain under the right rib can be caused by the liver inflammation.
Viral hepatitis for example.
Nausea, vomiting also can be experienced.
Gallbladder problem like gallstones can cause this .
Also intestinal inflammation can cause similar pain.
Since you have IBS this is likely.
Also muscle pain can be a cause if no other symptoms.
Pleae get liver function test and an ultrasound first.
