Question: Upper Right Adomen Pain


 Eichas05 - Wed Apr 27, 2005 9:06 am

Hi -
I have been having upper right adomen pain on and off for a couple of months. It will come and last 1-4 days and then I will be ok for a couple of weeks and this cycle repeats. Lately the pain is more intense. The pain is similar to the pain you get if you drink a lot of water and then go for a run. But the pain does not go away, it is just constent for a long period of time. My initial thoughts is it has to do with my gallbladder, because the days when it hurts the pain is more intense after I eat. I do not have any back pain, nausea, or gas. Please help

User avatar Hi Eichas05,
Do you experience pain after eating certain foods, for example, high concentrations of fat? If so this would certainly indicate possible gallbladder dysfunction. I would suggest an evaluation to identify the causative factor.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
