Hello. Back in September 2007 I started having several abdominal pain in the upper-right quadrant of my abodomin. I waited about 4 months before I went to the doctor. They did MRIs, upper GI, and ultrasound. I was informed that my liver was inflammed and so was the lining of my stomach but they did not know what was wrong. There was a benign mass in my liver but was advised that I probably had this since birth (cluster of blood vessels). So, I'm not worried about that. I then went to a naturopathic doctor who was able to assist with relieving the pain, bloating and nauseousness. However, a month later I am now having the same symptoms all over again. I wake up in the middle of the night and my abdomen feels as if it is going to explode. I can't lay on my left side or my stomach. It hurts. I am not quit sure if I actually have a problem with my liver or my gall bladder or some thing else. The pain moves around the abdomen (referred pain????) but it is primarily in the upper-right quadrant. Any ideas? Should I go back to the gastroenterologist or just let it be? Thanks!

  • So I am assuming they have ruled out a gall bladder problem? That can be very painful. Actually I have been suffering from a pain in the upper right side, just under the rib cage and they just diagnosed it as a 60-70%blockage in my superior mesentery artery. Almost just like a blockage to the heart but in the intestinal region that I have to have angioplasty on. I am told this is not a common thing but wanted to pass along my story as I have had every test you have and then some with no resolution until now.
