Have had pressure under upper right rib cage long time.

Customer Question

Have had pressure under upper right rib cage for a long time. However in recent weeks it has become painful after drinking coffee. I sometimes experience diarrhea. After awhile pain goes away. Nothing else seems to aggravate me. I get very sweaty when I get this pain. Appetite, sleep are fine.

Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. Do you get this discomfort or pressure behind the breast bone as well? Do you get this problem after fatty meals as well? Does this feel like burning? Regards
