Pain in side under rib cage

I've been getting pain in my right side, just under the ribcage. I've had a GI scope, chest Xray and liver blood test. Alll came back normal. Gaviscon seems to relieve it a little bit, but not completely. Do you know what can be causing it and what I can do to get complete relieve? thanks!

Dear Lizzy
Pain in the right upper abdomen can be due to gall stones, colon problems, liver problems, lower lung infections, abcesses under the diaphragm, or referred pain from a peptic ulcer. Your doctor will have to exclude all possible causes one by one. He will probably also send you for a sonar of the gallbladder.

I have this bulging feeling under my rib cage on the lower right side. It is not really pain full just annoying. When I eat, it seems like it gets bigger/ moves around a little. I now take Lee vo thyroxin for my thyroid. Could this be associated with the feeling I am experiencing? It is most noticeable when I am sitting. Generally when I am up working, I never notice it.
