I'm not sure. I seem to be experiencing fever after eating

Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I'm not sure. I seem to be experiencing fever after eating at times, only not always. And a level 1 or 2 pain near the right rib area also only at times. And recently noticed that I've lost all of my tolerance for reg coffee. I now have to drink decaff, because if I drink reg I get the jitters. Perhaps something is going on in the GI tract or stomach I'm not sure. What do you think I should do?
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: other than that I don't think so Pearl. Thank you.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes most likely.

A viral infection is more likely --may take some time to subside.

Another possibility can be gallbladder inflammation or cholecystitis given the location.

Hence if pain worsens you will need blood tests and abdominal scan.

Please follow a bland diet.

You can try antacids like Maalox liquid as well.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
