Hi, over the past two months I have been experiencing right side abdominal discomfort.
Patient :Hi, over the past two months I have been experiencing right side abdominal discomfort. It started out with a sharp pain in my back, along the upper right handside of the spine. That pain eased but the abdominal pain intesified. The pain only comes when I'm lay down at night, I might feel the odd pain during the day but I'm mostly uncountable in bed, I've been sleeping on my left side to get some sleep. The pain in below the right rib cage and above the belly button. I would describe the pain as a pulling feeling, a swelling or bloating sensation.
Hello, & Welcome to ATD
Your pain is in a region where pain is mostly due to renal pathology i.e. kidney disease.
Polycystic kidney disease
Do you have a history of renal stones?
Any history of renal diseases in paternal or maternal family?
History of repeated or current urinary infection?
Episodes of burning sensation while urinating?
You are required to undergo an abdominal examination to determine of there is an abdominal mass or not & confirm its origin in case of abdominal lump.
It's good to have a second opinion and consult but the clinical examination especially in your case, is irreplaceable.
Feel free to discuss further.
