Hi.
Is the pain in your abdomen or more in the groin area? Any lump there?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Abdomen area
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Right hand side just above the belt line on abdomen
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--How long has it been going on?
Any fever, nausea, or change in bowel movements?
And any pain at all in your back?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No fever or nauseaNo change in bowel movementsHurts when lift right leg ie when put socks on it hurts
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. There are a few possibilities here
One would be appendicitis although most of what you've told me isn't consistent with that
Another would be a kidney stone even with no back or flank pain.
A third, more likely than appendicitis would be a gall bladder problem, maybe from gall stones
Since I can't examine you I suggest you see a doctor right away for an exam, blood work, and a ct scan of the abdomen
Let me know if you need any more information please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you think it is please
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I can't be sure without being able to examine you but most likely it's your gall bladder
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could this be a hernia as it feels like it could be this?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That's why I asked about your groin but you said right hand side of your abdomen just above the belt line. An inguinal hernia would cause a problem in your groin and not in your abdomen
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I leave this until Thurs will this be a problem? How urgent is gall bladder issues? The pain hasn't got worse just consistently
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Not so urgent that it can't wait until Thursday
