Right upper quadrant pain could indicate disorders in the liver or gall bladder. If the pain is due to a problem from the liver like hepatitis, you should have associated symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Are you an alcoholic? The pain could be from the gall bladder too. It could be if there is a stone in the gall bladder or if its wall is inflamed. It could also indicate an intestinal infection.
For ruling out the possible cause of your pain, you will have to consult a General Physician, who would examine you and advise blood tests for liver function tests and maybe to do an abdominal ultrasonography to rule out hepatic enlargement or any stones in the gall bladder.
