Upper Right Quadrant Pain

What could cause pain upper right quadrant area about .5 inches above belly button? Pain is intermittent, gnawing sharp and burning at times other times dull then subsides for a while. Some months before could feel a funny tight sensation when stretching in the area also.
Recent sudden onset of the pain that goes from sharp to dull ache. It seems to be gradually worsening when it returns. Not relieved by eating or drinking. I also have indigestion and taking antacids which helped a little pain is a dull burning ache. Diagnosed with gastritis few years back through endoscopy everything else was normal.

Have you considered maybe it is your gallbladder? Your symptoms sound exactly like this. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1121646/  Biliary colic and gallstones resemble the symptoms you mention. Same place, same pattern of pain/discomfort.   Here's another article with some ideas about what to do. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320442  Basically, cut down on calories, fat, carbs.  Sigh (no fun!).
