Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been seen for this?
Any tests done?
Do you have any other medical problems?
On any medications for anything?
no and no tests
Is it tender to touch?
Does it hurt to breathe deeply?
yes its worse as the day goes on
Is the pain continuous or intermittent (comes and goes)?
its there all the time hurst when you take sharpe intake breathe
Is the pain superficial or a little deeper?
I personally think that you should have an ultrasound to have a look at your liver and your gallbladder.
I would like to rule out gallstones.
Another thing that I would like to rule out is kidney stones.
So an ultrasound is necessary to rule out these problems.
I would recommend that you should be seen for this by your GP and these tests done to rule out these conditions.
Meanwhile for the pain I would recommend that you should take something like over the counter ibuprofen 400 mg 'as required'.
If the pain is severe at anytime I would recommend visiting the emergency.
is this possible private and if so what would be the costs
yes it is possible private.
Ultrasound is usually a cheap test.
No too expensive.
Prices vary from one location to another.
But generally speaking should not be expensive anywhere in the world.
thank you for your advise
