In brief: RUQ ABD PAIN

First of all, it is important to distinguish pain that is emanating from the abdominal wall/muscles versus the intra-abdominal organs.
If it is the latter, the gallbladder, liver, and colon are probably the top 3 organs responsible for pain in that area. Bottom line: as much as we would like to help, nothing can replace a face-to-face examination from a doctor to get to the bottom of this.
