Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

The lower right side under my right rib is hurting a lot. I feel there is pressure while napping. It is a dull pain, and there is a lot of pressure. I have been vomiting and having a lot of anxiety. Please help. I cannot keep going through this, as it hurts a lot.

I found out two years ago that I have an acute kidney disease on the right side.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

From what you mentioned, most probably, you have gall bladder inflammation which may be due to stone.

Is it your first time experiencing such pain?

I suggest tablet Ibuprofen 600 mg for the pain. Also, perform CBC (complete blood count) and ultrasonography to confirm the diagnosis. If the fever and vomiting increase, I suggest you consult your specialist doctor, discuss with them, and take the medicines with their consent.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
