Hello

Dr Jones :

Welcome to justanswer.

Customer:

hi

Dr Jones :

You symptoms are not typical of one condition but cause which can present like this are kidney stone and sometimes inflammation of gall bladder can cause pain in this region.

Dr Jones :

Kidney stone can cause pain in this region radiating to lower back and thigh at times.

Dr Jones :

All cases of such abdominal pain need clinical evaluation and ultrasound of the abdomen.

Customer:

I had my gall bladder removed last summer after I saw a doctor about this same abdomenal pain but the pain has gotten worse in the last month

Dr Jones :

Ultrasound can help to determine the cause of pain and help to plan treatment.

Dr Jones :

So clinical evaluation and ultrasound are desired investigation in your case.

Dr Jones :

Please ask if ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Customer:

The pain is worse when sitting and better when laying down

Dr Jones :

Then I would consider possibility of renal stone is foremost cause.

Customer:

You don't think that my RA meds have damaged my liver?

Dr Jones :

Pain radiating to back is common symptom seen in obstructed kidney stones

Dr Jones :

But liver damage wont cause pain radiating lower back.

Dr Jones :

Pain would be located to right upper quantrant.

Customer:

OK, that is actually a relief... I will see my local physician

Dr Jones :

And ultrasound will also help to see if there are any liver changes.

Dr Jones :

So you will get both kidneys and liver evalauted.

Customer:

The fatigue is what is bothering me the most... it is constant and extreme

Dr Jones :

Fatigue can be part of RA and its medicines.

Dr Jones :

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards
