Hello!

How long have you had these episodes of pain and vomiting ?

Has this pain been recurring ?

Have you had ongoing nausea ?

I think some possible sources of right side pain + nausea / vomiting may include liver inflammation / gallstones / other gallbladder disease / ulcer disease -- especially duodenal ulcer

The more intense your pain -- longer lasting or severe symptoms then the more urgently you should seek further medical evaluation

I hope that this is a helpful start for you ..

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns or discussion

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

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.
