Hello

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

How long you have this pain?

Customer:

I fist noticed it about 3 weeks ago? I thought it was related to the stomach issue of gastroparesis. I did wake up a couple of times with pain that radiated to the R upper chest area. The pain has been constant for the past 4 days now. I don't take Tyl or NSAIDs. I use a TENS unit for general muscle pain. I have been NPO for 36 hours. The pain woke me up at 03:20 hrs and hasn't changed in character. Thanks.

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

this can be related to gallbladder problem like stones

mysticdoc :

liver problem unlike since you do not have nausea or anorexia.

mysticdoc :

but this should also be checked.

mysticdoc :

an ultrasound of the RUQ will be good for that

mysticdoc :

If that is negative then this can be related to the back problem.

mysticdoc :

gastroparesis unlike as this will again cause nausea, vomiting etc.
