sever upper right quadrant pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

For the last year it seems my body has started to reject food. When I eat I get vertigo within 15 minutes of the first couple bites. I usually vomit and get a sharp pain under my ribs on the right side. It also gets really hard and feels like something is swelling to the point it may explode. I have lost over 50lbs in the last 4 months. My blood test I'm told come out perfect. I'm getting desperate no doctors want to help.

    Hi crystal! Do u keep A journal on what you eat? Cuz I kno if I eat red meat I'm in pain! I been having the stomach pain for almost 20 to 30 years.. It makes me throw up no I'll see you before ago and right in the middle right underneath my ribs it's really hard! In 2011 my stomach got so big it look like I was having twins! I went to Santa Barbara Stanford my local hospitals and for three years the dr. didn't kno want was happening. Went from 126 to 210 in the first year. 2013 a local Dr. When they took my gallbladder out the stones came out and they were plugging up my system pancreas my kidneys my whole system was down. Went back pack into surgery he really didn't explain to me what he did! But it worked. But I'm still having the stomach pain.. I have lost the weight down to145.. Has ur Dr checked everything not  just blood work doesn't seem right ! Good luck sweetie! Lettie smile

      Thank you for u the feed back. As far as food goes my diet is whatever I can manage to choke down. I have very little I can eat. My allergic reactions for food are endless. As far as more tests than just blood work, I can't get any doctor to run any. They strike it up as I'm too young and just mental or want attention. I am down to 124 lbs and weak enought on a daily basis i do not even drive.

    Hi crystalDawn,

    HAve you had an ultrasound scan. It could be that you have gallstones or stones in the bile duct. I know these parts of the digestive system can get inflamed and swell.

    Go to your GP and ask for an ultrasound scan. Under the Patients Charter yo are entitled to a second opinion if you live in wishes...

    hey, i know exactly how you feel ive been the same for the last 6 months nearly, my bloods are ok apart from my gamma gt is raised, ultrasound normal but yet severe pain to the point where i cant get out of bed and nausea and if i eat most things im vomiting, im in the process of getting a second opinion as it ruining my life. Where i live i feel like doctors just dont care, my last clinic appt they just said i didnt look well but to just hang in there! i think ive got a problem with the function of my gallbladder (this can happen with a normal ultrasound, no stones) and eating anything with a fat content makes me feel ten times ive just learnt if i hardly eat i tend to feel better.Ive lost nearly 2 stone since it suddenly started back in the summer, and i rely on a heavy amount of painkillers and anti emtics..which i know will cause my more problems the longer i take them (im only 25), but yet doctors dont care.

    Ive tried to date nortriptiline which i couldnt tolerate due to it making my heart race and currently on gapabentin, which is doing nothing to help! hope you get some answers soon..let me know how you get on.

      I'm so sorry to hear you are going through the same thing. It is something I would not wish on anyone not even an enemy. I hope you get the answers you need and soon, and I hope that someday someone can find a doctor that actually wants to help you get the answers.

    It's horrible that we can't find doctors that care.  You keep looking for a doctor!  don't give up!  There are some out there.  There is nothing wrong with moving on to another doctor.  Just get your records when you go.  also, have you tried a natureopath?  Everytime my Dr. doesn't know what is going on, my Nautureopath hits it right on and helps me.
