Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Right upper abdominal pain with meals is commonly caused by the gallbladder disease.
Gall stone can cause obstruction to bile flow which occurs with meals to facilitate digestion.
Another possibility can be the ulcer disease which can also cause black stools from bleeding.
Lastly this can be acute pancreatitis as well.
Inflammation of pancreas can cause severe symptoms with food.
Given the possibility of gallbladder and pancreas problem, you should consider going to the ER for further evaluation.
Avoid any solid foods for now.
Drink plenty of fluids, clear liquids as tolerated.
Definitely avoid any fat reach food for now.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
