? Hernia: based on your description you might have a hernia which is a bulging due to weekend abdominal muscle fibers. This is most common in people who have had surgery, but could also appear randomly. Even though it does not bother you, I would suggest having a health care professional take a look. Good luck. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: In that area are the liver, gall bladder, part of the stomach, small intestine, etc... If symptoms are bothersome, recurrent, or unusual, a primary care doctor can evaluate and do an exam to help get a diagnosis. Sometimes it is a common stomach flu starting up, but it can also be other medical disorders... So, a doctor's exam may be important to do. ...Read more

You have already mad: You have already made a long list of what is wrong(as per your report). But i can assure you that young people rarely have so many things wrong all at once.
