Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Dull ache in the right upper quadrant could be due to peptic ulcer disease, gallbladder disease or liver disease. Since CT scan of the abdomen did not show a diseased gallbladder or a diseased liver and since you have a bloated feeling also, I would suggest an upper GI endoscopy be done to rule out peptic ulcer disease.
Check your blood glucose level also to rule out diabetes which can cause gastroparesis with symptoms like abdominal bloating.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
As I have mentioned earlier, it is due to involvement of nerves ( neuropathy).
Diabetes is just one cause of neuropathy. Other causes should be looked in to in your case.
You need a complete neurological examination.
Consult your doctor for this.
I hope that answers your question.

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a 19 year old and I took an MRI for my back because I was having lower back nerve pain from a college soccer injury. But when I got the results back, they said that they found nothing wrong with my lower back but instead, the doctors found a dark shadow in my right kidney. So I took an Ultra sound for it and the dark shawdow was about as big as a quater maybe a little bigger right in the center of the kidney. What does this dark shadow mean?

I have bilateral neuropathy. I have several other conditions, one of which I take gabapentin for. My neurologist recently prescribed tramadol to compliment the gabapentin for dealing with the nerve pain. Despite the fact that I found the tramadol to be effective in reducing the progressive nerve pain, I had to stop due to an adverse reaction. Today my neurologist called in a Rx for fioricet to try instead. I do not suffer from migraines. I cannot find any info online about taking fioricet for neuropathy. Any thoughts on why/how thiscdrug would be effective for dealing with nerve pain in my legs?? Thank you in advance for your time and expertise,Chronic nerve pain sufferer
