Customer Question

Hi Dr Sara, I have had another question I wanted to consult with you on. I have had h pylori in December, been treated for it in January. Had endoscopy, monometry, ph level testing as well as abdominal ultrasound and blood tests, all came back normal. I still experience pain in my upper right quadrant. The doctors aren't sure what it can be. Can you please advise what can this be? And how do I get rid of this pain?

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
Since when are you having this pain?
Do you have any other symptom? nausea,vomiting, fever?

What does aggravate the pain?
What treatment was advised?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Previously I was on omeprozole but now they said I had no acid reflux so shouldn't take it. And they didn't suggest any treatment since my results are all normal. I do feel nauseas but I don't have any vomiting. I do have a stool that is on Bristol chart -4-5 little sticky brown. No fever. Usually the pain is the same dull or sometimes stubbing a little but nothing actually aggregates it as such. I have had this pain since December.

Thank you for the information.
The pain on the right upper quadrant can be from a few causes.
Inflammation of the liver, gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right side below the rib cage.
But ultrasound was normal.
Sometimes peptic ulcer pain can also be felt on the right side.
Your tests came back normal in this regard.
Other causes can be there.
It can come from muscular pain when it aggravates with movement or deep respiration.
Sometimes pleural inflammation pain can be referred here which can increase in deep respiration.
Pinched nerve in the back or spine can cause referred pain here.
Sometimes, colonic spasm can be there.
As doctor did not find any specific & serious issue, you can wait & watch.
Acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help in muscular pain.
If the pain gets worse then you may need other tests like CT/MRI, liver enzymes etc.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
