HiCustomer

 

I am happy to help you this evening.

 

It could be your appendix , gallbladder or kidney stone.

 

 

Appendix symptoms,

~ vague abdominal pain that is hard to pinpont

~nausea and vomiting

Gallbladder:

~pain more under right rib and going into back

~ nausea or vomiting

 

Kidney stone

~more pain in lower back

 

Your doctor could order an abdominal ultrasound to check you.

 

He might even order a HIDA scan to check gallbladder function.

 

If you have severe pain go to the ER.

 

Best Wishes to you,

Macy
