Hi


RK :

are you online?


Customer:

yes

RK :

welcome to Justanswer!


RK :

I need some more information before I can give my opinion


RK :

how long have you been having right upper quadrant pain?


Customer:

Thank you can you help?

RK :

how long have you been having right upper quadrant pain?


RK :

are you there?


Customer:

2 yre ago l had terrible right side pain felt as though something went in my chest went to docs firstly told me l was astmatic gave me all sorts of inhalers & steriods but made me worse it emerged l was very annemic had iron infusion have gradually re built my strength but live with not being right tests so far show nothing but l can't exercise as l go quite giddy.seem to get ibs now too

RK :

you still have that right upper quadrant pain?


Customer:

yes it feels tight when l work in heat of kitchen it's uncomfortable & walking to school in cold

RK :

what tests have been done so far?


RK :

are you there?


Customer:

colonoscopy,endoscopy.chest x rayfor gall stones.all came back clear. they decided ibs which l think l do now have from mis diagnosis.but l know something has been missed

RK :

what worsens pain and what relieves it?


Customer:

the sunshine really helps on hol l felt free of it and have been ok over the summer but now back with avengence,certain foods make me feel poorly put l can't really out my finger on it

RK :

any medication that provides relief?


Customer:

l'm too frightened to take anything now as they fed me so much rubbish which caused probs l don't take anything!

RK :

does the pain disturb your sleep? what is your hemoglobin level?


Customer:

no l sleep very well now always tired though but my last bloods came up from 4 to normal 10 l think

RK :

10 is not normal. it should be at least 12


RK :

since it is not disturbing your sleep and that all the tests are normal, it looks more like functional abdominal pain


Customer:

ok not sure on that to be exact perhaps l'll check as doc said bloods were fine after infusion

RK :

correct your anemia if hemoglobin is low\


RK :

and you may need medications like amitryptyline which is helpful in functional abdominal pain


Customer:

so was is functional ab pain?

RK :

Functional abdominal pain is one in which tests done t find the cause will be normal and are without any alarm signs and symptoms.


Customer:

ok so am l possibly looking at medication to relax the muscles?

RK :

Yes and you can discuss with your doctor about taking amitryptyline


Customer:

ok thanks

Customer:

these are anti depressents!

RK :

In addition to antidepressant action, it also relieves nerve related pain and functional pain.


Customer:

i ended up in a&e last wek awful right side chest pain&lower right back pain again. all test clear sent back to docs who gave me diazapan of no effect haven't asked for anti depressent as l'm abit frightened too,not sure what to do?

Customer:

are you there?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
