What causes a sharp pain in my upper right abdomen?
I have a very sharp pain in my upper right abdomen that comes and goes. When I touch it there is not lump or swelling but it's very sensitive. When I twist to the right and hold it in that position it hurts so much that I have to stop and reposition myself. I've had this pain for a couple of months now and it also radiates to my lower back and sometimes my right leg. I have no clue what this can be?
Hi welcome to HCM Right upper quadrant pain which radiating to the back is highly suggestive of gall bladder related ( gall stones) pain Other possibilities are renal colic or liver abcess But in renal colic, pain during urination and in liver abcess, fever and sometimes jaundice also accompany ( which you are not mentioned) An ultrasound abdomen will give more information
