I have all kinds of pains under over and in my ribs. When your liver swells, it presses up under your rib cage and even pops out underneath it. It is connected to your gall bladder over on that side, so gallbladder pain can feel that way. Pain in the right shoulder, just under the shoulder blade is liver pain too. It wouldn't hurt to have your liver enzymes tested to see if your meds might be making your enzymes go up or something. Sometimes that happens. I think I passed a gallstone recently and I had a lot of pinching pain on the right as you describe. Hopefully it will go away. I have a lot of gi pain all over due to diverticulitis and irritable bowel, even kind of high up. There's not much they can do so I just learn to live with it. I hope you feel better soon.
