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 is good for possible liver pain?

An evaluation

Liver
There are a number of potential causes to pain in the right upper portion of the abdomen that could have nothing to do with the liver. With the information you're giving, you could have an ulcer, gallstones, a bowel obstruction, kidney stones, Crohn's disease, or something more serious like heart failure, pneumonia. In this case there really is no substitute for direct physical contact.
