Back pain, stomach pain, burping

I am presently on holiday in the UK so hesitant to go to the doctor. For the past week I have been getting back aches, slightly below the shoulder area. These aches gradually increase during the day and become more twinges that catch me. As the day progresses too, I start getting some stomach pain, particularly on the right side, just under the ribs, with some burping. I also feel bloated at the end of the day. Once I go to bed, I sleep well and neither the back or stomach really bother me during the night, though I still get some minor back ache if I wake up or move too much. Any ideas please as to how I can deal with this for the next few days until I return home and see a doctor?
