How tp differentiate between gallbladder and liver pain?

See an MD

Liver
Labs, imaging, a good history and physical will help your MD differentiate between a Hepatic (liver) cause for your symptoms and a Biliary (gallbladder) cause for your symptoms. The treatments are obviously different.

How can you differentiate between gallbladder and liver pain?

Tough to tell some

Liver
time. Gallstone pain is typically right upper quadrant and epigastric, following large or fatty meal, lasting 4-6 hours, with radiation to tip of right scapula. Liver pain is typically constant and located in right upper abdomen and lower chest. But usually patients don't have typical symptoms, and these are textbook symptoms. Consult your doctor, because it is difficult to tell the difference

How can you determine the difference between muscle or cartilidge pain vs liver or gallbladder pain? Have heard can feel liver pain under ribs ?

A good history

Gall_bladder
There are some different nuances with each type of pain. If you speak with your doctor, between a good history and a physical exam, your doctor can usually figure it out. An ultrasound or some blood tests may be helpful as well.

What causes liver pain?

Swelling

Pain
The most common cause of a painful liver is swelling causing stretching of the capsule, or outer portion of the liver. Many times "liver pain" is really pain in the belly from another cause. You should talk to your doctor to be sure.

Can coffee give liver pain?

Shouldn't . . .

Liver
Coffee shouldn't affect your liver (unless you're mixing it w/Irish whiskey or some other alcohol). If you're mixing a lot of cream into your coffee, the fat in the cream may be aggravating your gallbladder. Best way to figure out what's causing "liver pain" is to stop the coffee for a while & see how you feel. Then start it again & see if it comes back. Perhaps you have gastritis? Go see your doc

Not sure what u mean

Liver pain??? Don't know what that means. If it is inflammatory, NSAIDs would work well. This needs to be assessed by a physician (PCP/GI) and they can help u further

Will back problems cause liver pain?

Unlikely. Maybe meds

Liver
Back pain from work is unlikely to cause liver pain. If you are taking medications for pain they could have an impact on liver pain or gall bladder. Any medication that causes hepatic impairment. See your doctor.
