Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Any urinary or bowel complaints?
Does the pain radiate anywhere ?
Any known medical problem or medicines you are taking?
Thanks for the information
It does seems like a kidney pain, The location below the rib cage most likely suggest a kidney pain although kidney pain are felt most commonly in posterior abdomen as compared to anterior . At time if there is a kidney stone and it pass from kidney downwards a pin in anterior abdomen can be felt and actually is very severe. As you have taken paracetamol without much relief I would suggest you to see the doctor for an evaluation and further medicines as required to control your pain. You might need some tests like an ultrasound/CT Scan and blood work to establish the exact cause of this pain.
Feel free to ask if any more question
