Ongoing right upper quadrant abdominal pain accompanied by other symptoms
Patient :Unwell since beginning of April with stabbing abdominal pain and various other symptoms. My doctor has hinted at kidney problems (family history too) but any idea of what it could specifically be?
Symptoms: Upper right quadrant abdominal pains (stabbing feeling, lasts for many hours); pain radiates through to my back; weakness; joint pain mostly in right knee and both ankles, but also some pain in neck (although right knee and left ankle have been injured in past); difficulty sleeping (often too painful to sleep on right side/keeps me awake at night); fatigue; diarrhoea; some difficulty urinating in that urine stream does not start immediately; headaches on right of head (pressure/fullness); fever; hot upper arms and neck (feeling I can only describe as feeling like fresh sunburn?); some unintentional weight loss (although I have cut gluten/wheat/dairy from my diet)
