I have been sick for a few months. It started with pain in the upper right stomach that wraps to the side and back around. I had a scan which ruled out gallbladder problems. I am getting weaker and feel nauseous. I get bloated with little food. When I am having an attack, pressing the area makes me feel like I will throw up. These symptoms become worse after eating, but attacks can come even when I haven't eaten. I do not eat fatty food. I feel like I am running with a low grade infection. All forms of hepatitis and H. pylori have been rule out. What is it?
Your symptoms could indicate a wide variety of gastrointestinal issues. I recommend that you consult a physician to help form a diagnosis of your condition. Knowing the answers to the following questions will help your physician form an accurate diagnosis:
- When do you have pain?
- Exactly where is the pain is located?
- What type of pain (such as aching, stabbing, throbbing or cramping)?
- How long does the pain lasts?
- What triggers the pain?
- What helps relieve the pain?
- How does the pain impact your life (such as limiting activities or missing work)?
