Hello I'm Dr Chip

Any fever or nausea with this?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No

OK

Most likely this is a gall bladder problem and you may have gallstones

You need to see your doctor for an exam, blood work and an ultrasound of the abdomen to check it out

Please let me know if you need any more information
