Following are the possibilities of the diagnosis;

1) Gall bladder inflammation or stone.

2) Kidney stone or kidney infection.

3) Liver infection / hepatitis.

These are not uncommon in intravenous drug users.

You may need an ultrasound and blood work for the evaluation.

You may take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the relief.

Plenty of fluids and Probiotics too would help.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

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.
