Stomach Pain

I have pain in my right side of the stomach sometimes. I have also got

pain when I eat something. Is this because of any abdominal

problem? Please give me a medical advice.

Tharanath , Mahi

Right sided abdominal pain can be due to various causes pertaining to liver, gall bladder and bile duct system located on the right side of abdomen. Organs located in other regions also may give rise to right sided pain, for example a peptic ulcer or pancreatitis. Very rarely appendix, a vestigial organ located in the lower abdomen may give rise to upper abdominal pain.

The additional information which you have given other than location is related to food intake. Pancreatitis, peptic ulcer may get precipitated following food intake.

There are various other aspects of pain which need to be considered like whether pain occurs in the night, associated with nausea, vomiting fever etc.

The Investigations would include basic blood work, liver function tests and Serum Amylase levels. Baseline scanning to be ordered would be ultra sonogram.

In nutshell, the information given by you is sketchy and not sufficient to arrive at a diagnosis. Certainly you need to consult a Gastroenterologist, give him more details of symptoms. Before embarking on investigations, a clinical examination also needs to be carried out.

¤ Underage drinking is a risk that attracts many adolescents and teens. When young people try alcohol, they often don’t realize about the damaging effects of drinking on their lives, their families, and their communities. Besides being illegal, underage drinking is a widespread public health problem that poses many risks. According to statistics, in 2009 alone, about 10.4 million young people between the age 12 and 20, drank more than “just a few sips” of alcohol.
