Brief Answer:
You should be investigated thoroughly.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I can understand your concern,

Most of these symptoms that you have mentioned could be due to Hyperthyroidism, increased Thyroid hormone levels. Estimation of fT3, fT4 and TSH levels will confirm the diagnosis.

For right upper quadrant pain, you should get an Ultrasound abdomen to exclude any liver lesions. Some adhesions at the Surgery site of Cholecystectomy may also cause pain there.

Please discuss these with your doctor and get investigated accordingly.

Hope I've answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will clarify further.

Wish you good health.
Regards

Hi, I workout 3-4 sometimes 5 days a week, really depends, but my workouts are of weight lifting, one day arms and cardio, another legs and cardio, and another day circuts and cardio, and on other days when available some light 30 min jogging. But I have noticed my stomach is getting way bigger, and I am getting very uncomfortable about it and I am not sure why. I dont eat that bad all the time, and I try to eat few snacks so I dont have to have a huge meal and that way I can keep my metabolism running. there are some days were I eat a little more due to times of classes, so missing meals, and then workout times. Is there any way you can help me and tell me why my stomach is getting much bigger even though I am working out and doing ab workouts as well?

Since then the pain is there and severe only when I stand or walk and feels like it radiated straight threw to my back. I have no pain when I am sitting or lying flat on my back. I have no other symptoms or concerns regarding this, the diet is going well.

Bloating increases as the day progress and towards night, it is unbearable. I am working as a teacher and am constantly on my toes. I am careful about my food and have almost stopped eating rice and have switched to wheat ( chappati, rawa, lapshi etc) I walk for more than half and hour and do all the household chores myself. I have included lot of steamed cauliflower and salad with raw cabbage and other veggies. My meat intake is very limited yet my weight from the middle refuses to go, I am not losing weight nor inches. I hate to go shopping because the figure in the mirror depresses me as I do not get the clothes of my choice. I have now started maintaing a food diary so that I can monitor what goes inside me. Please Help me to get a desireable and healthy weight.

Hi, I was just getting a bit paranoid because I found out my cat had worms a few weeks ago. I got him treated and he is now worm-free. I was just wondering if I could have gotten them? I haven t noticed weight loss , nor have I really been paying attention. I have been constipated, followed by periods of loose excretion . I also have these really itchy lumps on my arms and legs. Now, I understand that they could be fleas, but I have treated my house so many times, and have given the cat baths. There have been no signs of fleas in the house since the worms were exterminated. I have noticed that I m not as hungry as I usually am and actually tend to be nauseous.
