Customer Question
I am having pain...

I am having pain on my right side below my ribs but above my hip. It started out dull and now it is getting worst...

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It started last night and I thought it was nothing major and 8t has increasingly got worst throughout the day. I try laying down, I've tried to pass gas, drink water, took ibuprofen and Tylenol and a muscle relaxer and nothing is seeming to help. I've had a bowel movement early this morning so I know it don't have to do with being constipated I don't have an appetite, and I feel a lil nauseas

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I have had youth pulups removed when I was 10 but haven't had any issues since then

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.
