I am a 45 yr old female haveing left upper quadrant dull pain on and off for about 2 hours now what could this be?

Hard to say!: There is no sure way to diagnose the source of abdominal pain because the nerves there are not too smart. They don't say "Hey, this is your liver & I'm hurting! (or kidney, gall bladder, or stomach) Nerves are smarter elsewhere (When you hit your finger, your little finger does tell you it is very upset and hurt! You have specific finger pain, not vague arm pain. If worsens, fever, vomiting: ER ...Read more

GB taken 7mo ago. Resumed weight lifting 10wks ago. Dull pain in gb area for 3 wks midupper right quadrant. Had U/sound all ok no hernia. Is it normal?

Which type of GB: surgery did you have, open or laprascopic? As long as you have been cleared of anything else more serious, such as a hernia as you said, infection, hematoma or anything else, then you may be feeling muscle or myofascial pain related to disruption from the surgery and this could last up to two years post surgery unless it is permanent. Find someone who does good myofascial work, see if it helps! ...Read more

Dull pain in left and right lower abdominal quadrant. What can I take to relieve the pain. It is not serious with no other side effects.

Depends: I am glad this seems not to be serious to you. One suggestion can be using over the counter meds like acetaminophen, or ibuprofen: however, both of these meds may cause problems or may not be a good choice depending on your medical history. Such pain can be from benign things like constipation, but more serious problems can also start this way. Especially at age 81, if the pain continues, be seen. ...Read more

I have a dull pain that comes and goes in my right upper quadrent under my rib cage I had x rays done at ER it's not my gull bladder or a blood clot?

Pain in the side!: Ruq pain can come from a variety of different sources. Gall bladder is a common source however but one of many possibilities. Xray surely isn't going to decipher if the pain is gallbladder related. Ultimately you would need to get an ultrasound of your gallbladder. Other things that can cause RUQ pain include, pleurisity, trauma, hepatitis, musculoskeletal. ...Read more

I have sharp aching grabbing paun in my left upper quadrant what can this be?

Not usually serious: If "paun" is "pain" then the answer is a host of things, which can range from simple things such as a strained muscle or a rib fracture on the left lower chest wall, to more serious disorders like peptic ulcer disease or diverticulitis.

Upper right quadrant ache around to backn fullness comes and goes. Sometimes no pain forweeks. Lots of burping and bubbles. Abdom ultrasound negative?

Get a HIDA scan: Your brief description of symptoms are quite typical for gallbladder disease. This is common even in the case of a normal sonogram. I usually order a hida scan with cck to check its function. (google hida w/ cck). There are occasional patients with all normal tests but they still have gb disease and get relief with removal. See a general surgeon. ...Read more
