Liver "deficiency"?: In chinese medicine, symptoms at this time of day are associated with energy moving from the lung to the liver. Are the symptoms on the right side where the liver is? This type of thinking is taken seriously by those who practice alternative medicine; I am a lapsed acupuncturist who has seen it work. Failing a good "medical" explanation you might try an herbalist/acupuncturist liver tonification. ...Read more

I'm obese and I'm experiencing sharp located pain in my middle abdomen while eating or walking, gastroscopy was ok 1 year ago, can it be muscolar? Thx
Not clear : there are many structures in your abdomen that we have to consider more.. It could be your gallbladder, it could be your pancreas and could be stomach, could be the duodenum, it could be many of these structures. Need to see a gastroenterologist and clarify these issues. Muscle pain can be a cause of abdominal pain but that has to be evaluated. You can discuss this with your physician and a gastr ...Read more
I've had pain under my right rib for months, I've been careen for gall stones I had a gastroscopy to check for ulcers and both negative ?
GB may be cause: I presume no gall stones because of negative ultrasound exam. However gall bladder dysfunction does not necessarily require presence of gall stones. HIDA exam with cck will evaluate gb function. Dyskinesia of gall bladder can cause symptoms without presence of gall stones. Sometimes abnormalities of liver and pancreas have to be excluded. Probably need further workup for other causes. ...Read more

I've just had a gastroscopy for coeliac. Showed gastritis. Bloated and severe stitch pain in side. Sometimes pain / burning under ribs. Please help!
Gastritis: Celiac disease is not diagnosed by gastroscopy since it involves the small intestines and not the upper GI tract. You problem appears to be from inflammation in the stomach which may be associated with H pylori infection, NSAIDs intake etc. It is best for you to consult your doctor or see a GI specialist to get a more focused diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
I had a gastroscopy 19 months ago and diagnosed with GERD. Now I feel mild burning pain in the chest and upper abdominal. Do I need gastroscopy again?
I have a gastroscopy in two weeks. But my stomach pain/burning is so painful and getting worse. Its constant. Is it ok to wait?
Abdominal pain: If there are any dramatic changes in your pain quality, severity or development of new associated symptoms (i.e. Nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, painful swallowing, blood in stools, black stools, etc) then you should have your exam sooner. Otherwise its probably ok to wait assuming you were evaluated by a health professional already. ...Read more
