Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Upper right abdominal pain is usually caused by gallbladder issues. As gallbladder and liver move when breathing, coughing or laughing, you may get pain when laughing. Most common gallbladder issue are gallstones. The pain usually radiates to the back. Nausea can be present occasionally.
If the pain is more in the rib area, rib nerve irritation can be also the reason.

I suggest you to consult your doctor and have abdominal ultrasound done at first. If nothing will be found, please consult orthopedist.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

39 asian female, menses Nov 6-12, abdominal pain LLQ goes away when supine, tender to touch, no fever, ate (stupidly) at Burger King Mon evening. Onset next morning, vomiting. No diarrhea. Some bloating, + flatulence and last BM Monday. At Disney world for the week. Seem to walk ok, occasional cramping. Nothing that brings me to my knees. Back pain because I am walking in flip flops, perhaps? Have one day left (today) and headed home tomorrow morning. Warrant an ER visit? Pain tolerable with Motrin.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
