I see the GI md in 2 weeks. I was referred to a GI md from my Primary MD because of my persistent elevated liver enzymes. The SGPT has been elevated since March 2007 but now my other 2 are elevated as well. I also have pain under my ribs in the right. It feels much like someone is pressing down on that area and something is lodged there (feels like an ache I guess) I had my gb out in 2001. My primary md did all the hepatitis blood tests and they came out normal. My back has been aching lately and feels in same basic area from middle to right side. Anyone else has these symptoms ?? I look forward to hearing from anyone that can give me info on their experiences.

Thanks

My endocrinologist discovered this and said that I should have my liver evaluated. So I have an appointment with my regular doc later this week. I also have aches in my upper right side. i will post what the doc says. Please keep me informed about your case. Keep your chin up

  • Right upper quad pain can also be associated with Gallbladder issues. Usually a Liver/Gallbladder ultrasound will show most problems. There is also a test called a HIDA (or hepatabiliary) scan which studies the actual function of the gallbladder.
