Sorry opt out was pressed by mistake.

This can be a gastritis again for which you can take omeprazole but there are other differential diagnosis which include inflammation of the gall bladder called cholecystitis and the muscular spasm is another possibility. This needs a thorough examination for exact diagnosis though. Meanwhile i would recommend you to take omeprazole and tylenol to see the response. It should get better with omeprazole in case of gastritis.
