hello,
you have mentioned it happened after going to beach.have u met any truma or injury or any kind of insect bite. if its due to injury then you can take some analgesic tab like diclofenac 50 mg bd(please ensure that u r not allergic to diclofenac).you can give heat therapy to that area. again you have to meet a orthopedician.he will cmpletely examine that area and give u medications.ther may be some other pathology.

Gallstone problems Hi! I found out last year that I have gallstones and suffer from acid reflux. The doctor I went to put me on dicyclomine for the acid reflux but nothing for the gallstones.They only bother me once in a blue moon but when they do, it get s pretty bad. What are some things that I can do to prevent being in pain until I can have surgery to get them removed? Are there any over-the-counter meds I can take for the pain? I m 22, about 5 1, female, and weight about 200 lbs. I take pepogest to help with acid reflux but I need something for the gallstones. I heard you can pass them but as far as I know, I haven t passed any yet. What can I do about? Help please?!? Thank you

I have a 4 cm gallstone. Should it be taken out if I don t have many of the usual symptoms. I am 65 and my dr. says that I have probably had it a long time. I don t hurt when I eat a fatty meal or a big meal. Right now I keep having a pain just about the area of my right bottom rib cage. It has been there for about 4 months. I weigh 150 pounds and am female.
