Chronic pain in right side.

Patient: I’ve been having chronic pain in my right side for over a year. The pain occurs maybe once or twice a month and lasts 3-6 hours but is very uncomfortable. However, most of the time it is tolerable. On a very occasions it has hurt really badly. Sometimes these episodes are accompanied by constipation, burping and bloating. I have been diagnosed with acid reflux as well. What could be causing this?
