I have had this pain in my RUQ (Right Upper Quadrant) of my abdomen for the last couple of years. Usually, after waking up, it goes away.
Because I know how long my lungs are, I kept thinking it had to be something on my diaphragm. X-rays show nothing.
The only other thing it could be is either my liver or my gall-bladder.
Considering it's a mostly localized area, I'm thinking it is more possible to be the gall-bladder than the liver, although it seems kind of high. I suppose I could have something wrong with just a small portion of my liver, but knowing physiology, it's pretty unlikely.
Most of the time, I wake up with the pain and then it goes away. For the last couple of years, it's been a sporadic thing, maybe once a week to once a month.
It has been a constant nagging pain for the past week, with no relief at all.
I guess it's time to start thinking about those yearly visits to the doctor that we old people have to do. Damn! I don't feel like I'm old enough that I have to start doing that!
Yay, a yearly finger up my ass to check my prostate!
Damnit! I still feel like I'm in my early to mid twenties!
Well, except for this naggin pain in my abdomen.
Oh yeah, and my knees hurt from time to time.
Not to mention my backaches...
