Question: Right abdomen press with a fluttering sensation
Answered by Dr. Charles S Narasi 2 hours later
Hello, xxxxxxx,
I gather from your short history, that you are experiencing
pressure sensation on the right side of your abdomen.
This could mean a lot of different things. First of all, the
duration of this (How long have you had this ), any radiaiton
the pain, like travelling to the back or shoulder, if there is any
nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, fever, chills etc.
Does the pain come on before or after meals , and if this
happens once every few weeks or months, any loss of weight
or loss of appetite, any change in the color of the stool, any
family history of gallbladder disease or bowel cancer, we need
all these to correctly assess the situation.
The right upper quadrant is in the viscinity of gallbladder, liver.
the part of the large bowel that is close to the liver called the
"Hepatic Flexure", lower part of the right lung and rib cage
along with nerves and chest wall muscle.
If you have had any complete blood work done, including
complete blood count, metabolic panel that includes kidney,
liver, thyroid, lipid levels, electrolytes, protein levels etc.
A chest x-ray, sonogram of the gallbladder and liver may be
In addition to all of these, if you are on any medications we
should know. Any allergy to particular food or drink and
also if you have excess gas problem like belching or passing
Trapped gas in the Hepatic Flexure can give sometimes severe
pain or pressure with relief after expelling gas.
Hope, I have given you suggestions on how to figure out the
problem with additional information.
I wish you well.

I have been having stomach pain for over 5 weeks now. I have had severe nausea, diarrhea, bloating, constant gas, and i feel like my stomach is constantly churning. Its horribly painful. What do you think is wrong? What kind of doctor shOuld i see? (im a 16 year old girl)

Hi, I am a 17 year old girl who for the past almost 10 months has been dealing with constant gas, belching and minor bloating. I've went to my doctor who has suggested things such as activia, laxatives and the gas relief pill but nothing has seemed to have an effect. The gas starts in the morning when i wake up and continues throughout the day. Sometimes i can go to make a bowel movement and the gas will stop but only until i eat something else. My bowel movements are also difficult for me to have and the stool is hard and small. I can eat virtually anything and it gives me gas. The gas doesn't have an odor to it, it's like it's just air. Sometimes my stomach and the area between my lower abdomen and leg on both the left and right sides just growl like crazy, sometimes even causing discomfort a bit. Because of this issue i have been stressed and i've had severe anxiety, i get nervous just being around anyone for fear of flatulence and it's driven my self esteem to an all time low. At times my nerves seem to cause gas too. I'm going to a College Campus live-in in 2 weeks and i need this problem to be gone or atleast controllable by then. Please help! :(

I went for tests, colonoscopy, endoscopy, and I was told that I have diverticulosis and to watch my diet. 2 months later, same symptoms and I do watch what I eat. The pain goes into my back and between shoulder blades. I was tested for gallbladder, but was told that s not the problem. Your thoughts?
