Dr. P. Jyoti :

Hello would you like to chat on this? Please type into your message box and press 'enter' or 'reply' to send the message so that we can have a live chat.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hello do you have any other symptoms like fever, nausea, etc?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hello

Customer:

no other symptoms, just pain

Dr. P. Jyoti :

do you have any other symptoms like fever, nausea, etc

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

pain in this region can be due to many causes

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the most common is a simple muscular pain, because of your position in sleep, etc

Customer:

my water intake has been low for the past few days

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this can usually be healed by simple stretching exercises and by heat application

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the three conditions which can also cause this are:

Dr. P. Jyoti :

gall bladder, pancreatitis and renal stones

Dr. P. Jyoti :

all these three can also cause a pain in this area

Dr. P. Jyoti :

gall bladder stones can cause pain which is increased in breathing in

Dr. P. Jyoti :

pancreatitis can also cause this pain, but this is least likely among these three

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the third possibility which is an important possibility for you is renal stones

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this can also cause a pain in this region

Customer:

If I do a cleanse, can I pass any possible stones?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

no that would not happen

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you need to see your doctor for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you need to get an ultrasound done which can diagnose these conditions

Customer:

thank you

Dr. P. Jyoti :

see your doctor for this and discuss these three possibilities

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask about doing an ultrasound for them

Dr. P. Jyoti :

meanwhile do gentle stretching exercises and also use a hot water bottle

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will help with the pain
