Painless but very uncomfortable pressure under the right ribcage

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have these symptoms for few months already. I have visited my doctor, she sent me to ultrasound but all they found was a fatty liver.

There's this pressure under the right ribcage. It doesn't hurt, it's just very uncomfortable. It almost feels like there's something which shouldn't be there or something missing. Sometimes it's better but in the last few days it's getting worse and worse.

It helps me to arch my back, hold my hand and push on the spot or just laying in bed on the side that's uncomfortable. I also feel vibrations down in my abdomen and loud rumbling in my stomach.

I often have diarrhea and stomach sickness too.

What could this be? I don't know what to do.
