Heaviness in upper abdomen. Ultrasound, liver profile, renal profile normal. What could this be?

Hi, I am 30 male and about 2 years back I started experiencing mild heaviness/pressure sensation in my upper right abdomen(center and towards right). I have had abdominal ultra sound done last year and about a week back as well and both ultra sounds were absolutely normal. Also my liver and renal profile done last year were normal. I often experience acid re flux . My physician say there is nothing serious but I want to permanently get rid of this sensation.

Hello, sumkohli,
I was just answering your concerns and I donn't know what happened !
But , I was saying I was glad to hear that your ultrsound and blood
tests for liver and kidneys were normal. I am not sure if you were
placed on any treatment for acid reflux. If you have tried any over
the counter medications like Omeprazole once or twice a day, you
will find out quickly if that controls your symptoms. If you have not,
I recommend that you do this first. Also, I am not sure if you have
problems with your bowel movements. If you have have more
constipation and gas, this could be giving you the symptoms also.
You may need to take stool softeners and drink more fluids.
Make sure that your diet has more fiber , like fruits and vegetables.
Whole grain creals will be good for you.
At the minimum, go ahead and get a n upper GI series X-rays to
look for hiatus hernia.
Wish you well.
