What causes pain in my upper right side of my abdomen?
i m having pain in upper right side of the abdomen. I have kidney stones in both the kidneys and most of the time get the ureter pain that extends to the extreme lower. I do have pain in the back under and below the ribs too coz of sciatica and lumbar sprain which caused painful numbness in my outer right thigh.
Upper right sided pain abdomen is usually caused by problems in gall bladder or liver or Rt lower lung or chest wall. I would suggest an XRay chest to rule out any lung or pleural lesions and also an Ultrasound abdomen to rule out gall bladder stones or infection. Details about the pain would be helpful to guide the management. Medication should not be commenced till cause of pain is known, especially when you would be on medication for kidney stones and sciatica.
