Dear Madam ,

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem , I will like to tell you that it will be difficult to pin point a diagnosis by this history still we can discuss the possibilities.

Since you suffer from sjogrens syndrome there can be AVN of hip if you are taking steroids . But you havent provided the treatment details you are on . There is a possibily of renal stones in theses diseases so a USG Abdomen is needed to rule them out .

Problems of acidity and gas formation generaly cause bloating and pain in upper abdomen (epigastrium) generally and localised pain is very rare .

Consult an expert rheumatologist for this problem and get routine invesigations done for the evaluation of primary disease as well . A physical examination to elicit the exact point of tenderness is essential so that the cause can be localised as from where the pain is arising .

Hope it suffices.

Wish you good health.
