Had bloating, discomfort in stomach radiating to lower back. feeling pricking sensation under the right ribs. Suggestions?

Hi, Last week I had bloating , and discomfort in my stomach area (mostly all over). This discomfort would move around to my lower back area. That is better after my doctor let me sample medicine for acid in the stomach. Now, I m feeling a pins/needles sensation directly below my right ribs. I guess it could kind of remind me of a burning sensation. What should I do?

Thanks for posting your query.
There may be possibility of gastroenteritis or peptic ulcer disease.
Presence of bloating along with pain all over the abdomen suggest gastroenteritis.
While presence of pins & needle like sensation below ribs suggest possibility of peptic ulcer disease.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take proper medicine for faster recovery.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
