Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I am sorry you are having these pains.

how old are you?

constipation, hernia of your bowels, kidney stone, long term gall bladder inflammation can cause pain on the right side

what is your height and weight? being overweight or having prior abdominal surgery can increase risks for abdominal hernias.

you may benefit from a better more supportive mattress possibly

I am 47, 5'6, 158lbs. I have a new mattress. This stabbing pain often radiates toward my back. It comes and goes constantly. Sometimes involving vomiting and nausea depending on pain level.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Also my past surgeries are a hysterectomy, tubal ligation, and ovarian cyct removal. 2009, 2000 , 1997 respectively.

you could have scar tissue in your abdomen causing this pain and vomiting and nausea.

you need to work on avoiding constipation

adding more fiber, fruits and vegetables, metamucil, laxatives, prunes, colace stool softeners can help fight constipation.

prior abdominal surgeries can increase adhesions and scar tissue in your abdomen

this can be cut out by another surgery called lysis of adhesions

a general surgeon can do this surgery for you.

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.
