Hello,

Thanks for your query.

Discomfort in right upper abdomen (near liver) can be due to reasons like:-

1-Hepatitis(that is jaundice),
2-Cholecystitis(inflammation or infection of gall bladder),
3-Duodenitis or duodenal ulcer,
4-Gastritis,

To understand it better please write back with few details:-

a-Since how long do you have this discomfort?
b-Does the pain increase or decrease after food?
c-Do you have dark yellow colored urine?
d-Is the discomfort continuous or intermittent?

Kindly write back to be able to help you better.

Awaiting your reply.

Thanks for the reply sir,

a-Since how long do you have this discomfort?

I am having this pain for the past 5- days.

b-Does the pain increase or decrease after food?

No, the pain does not increase or decrease after food.

c-Do you have dark yellow colored urine?

No dark coloured urine have been observed so far.

d-Is the discomfort continuous or intermittent?

the discomfort is not continious it just comes and goes.

Additionally, I have been eating a lot for the past last month, due to which my belly(stomach) has come out and I have gained few kilos, Is this could be a reason for this discomfort?

Hello;

Thanks for providing your details.

From your details I guess there should not be any major issue to be worried about.

I feel it could be related to:-
- increased diet, excessive intake of food especially fatty food or sweet food,
- Increased belly and probably lack of exercise,
- Gaseous distention of abdomen.

I would suggest you to:-
1- Cut down on your excess food intake especially fats, sweets, etc.
2- Start on exercise like brisk walking and aerobics,
3- Avoid intake of carbonated drinks, caffeine / alcohol.

If the discomfort does not get better in a week you should consult a doctor and get examined and if needed investigated for any liver related issue.

Hope this answer is helpful to you.

Wishing you good health.
