Regular Abdomen Pain

about once per month i get this severe pain in the upper right side of my abdomen. nothing seems to help it so i just have to wait for the pain to subside, which usually takes about 5-8 hours. The pain is bad enough that i can't sleep and usually just spend the night walking around because that seems to dull the pain a little bit. At first I thought that it would be from eating spicy foods and at first after cutting them out of my diet it worked, but lately the pain has returned. I don't want to go to a doctor and pay a large bill for something that could be easily fixed but I am starting to get worried because the pain gets worse each time it happens

   It could any of the following or even something else. My suggestion is see your MD

           Pneumonia (bacterial or viral) of the lower lobe of the right lung.
           Pleurisy or pleuritis (inflammation of the lung membrane) from infection, trauma, e
           Enlarged liver due to heart failure, hepatitis, fatty liver, lymphoma, leukemia, etc.
           Liver cancer or metastases of other cancer into the liver.
           Gallbladder inflammation, mostly due to gallstones.  
           Inflammation or blockage of the biliary tree (cystic, or common bile duct).  
           Gallbladder and biliary cancer are rare.
           Duodenal ulcer
           Strained muscle  
           Pyelonephritis (infection of the right kidney).  
           Kidney/uretheral stones
           Abscess under diaphragm
