    sorry to hear that you're going through this. I've been experiencing upper abdominal discomfort (dull ache) for three months now especially in the RUQ. also, there's occasional heartburn and headaches and I used to have nausea in the beginning but not anymore

    I've been on PPI's ever since and there's no improvement. I've been scheduled for an ultrasound soon. I'll update here if that helps!!

      not always but there are some times when the upper abdominal discomfort radiates towards the right side of my back. there are so many symptoms and it feels like something crazy is going on with my system. the pain and discomfort, belching, indigestion, heartburn. it's annoying lol

      • constant upper abdominal discomfort especially in the right upper quadrant and centre
      • burping more than normal
      • occasional heartburn
      • feeling bloated everytime i eat or drink
      • slight ache in the neck and left ear and cheek sometimes

    Have you had any luck tracking down a diagnosis. I have very similar symptoms and have been through most of the same testing plus a HIDA scan with nothing found so far.

    Do you have any dizziness or lightheadedness with these symptoms?

    Is there any specific food or drink that triggers an increase in discomfort?
