I am really worried. First I haven't had a period in 16 months.
I have had this deep ache/ almost feels like knuckles pressed in my upper right side up under my breast. I don't know what it is. The only thing there is my liver. So now I am worried about liver damage/fatty liver/tumors/cysts/cancer. You see were this is leading? I really hate Google.
I though it was my right breast before. I don't drink alcohol. I don't drink caffeine. I am really overweight. I try and watch my fat intake and I am struggling to lose weight. I went to the ER because of right breast pain, now I wonder if it was under the breast instead. They did a chest xray and a CBC blood test and an EKG all was ok they said. That ache actually making my shoulder ache. My right upper back aches a little now because of that ache.
It isn't gallbladder because I am familiar with that issue. This is much higher. I had it before, but couldn't tell if it was my breast the rib area as the ache/pressure then was in the crease of the underside of my breast. This is definitely by upper right chest/rib area high.
I think my eyes look a bit jaundice, but my color blind husband doesn't think so. UGH.
Of course it is Friday night. I would go to the ER, but I am sure it is busy. I cannot sleep from this.
Anyone else have this issue? I took a 800 mg ibuprofen tablet (Motrin) earlier but it has had no effect. Another sleepless night worrying about my liver or what this could be. My only options are to wait for a Dr appt or go to ER or maybe Urgent Care tomorrow. I hate going in and be "The Girl who cried Pain" After awhile they stop taking me seriously. "Sure you have a pain".
I really don't think I am going to live through my 50's. It is so depressing. I know if I drop 50 lbs I would feel generally better. It is very difficult in menopause for me to lose even a pound. So very depressed and then add worry to that...
