Pain in right abdomen-not gallstones

Please help, I have had recurring pain in my upper right abdomen for about 10 years. I have had numerous scopes &  scans &  all that can be found is a enlarged liver which I am told cannot be causing the pain. 3 weeks ago I landed up in Trauma with extreme pain, I once again had a sonar &  was referred to a Surgeon. Had scopes, top &  bottom, CT scan &  nuclear scan &  still nothing could be found that could be causing the pain. On Saturday night I woke up with pain &  vomiting. I eventually inserted a supp which eased the pain. The Surgeon suggested the pain could be coming from my back, is this possible or what else could it be. A reply would be appreciated. Thank-you

Hallo Annette
One can get referred pain that may come from the back from a nerve that is pinched or from a trigger point in a muscle.
