DULL PAIN BEHIND LOWER RIB RIGHT SIDE. UPPER ABD. ? PAIN COMES AND GOES.NO OBVIOUS PATTERN
Hello,

Is there any relation to food, have you had any trauma or other medical history, have you had any problems with your liver?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No History, No obvious food correlation, no trauma

When you have pain in the right upper quadrant one must immediately rule out gallstones which can be done with a simple test called an ultrasound. Also your doctor should perform routine liver test to rule out any abnormality in the liver. If these tests are negative or normal then you may consider a trial of Prilosec OTC in the event you may have and inflammation at the end of your stomach which can be located in this area.
