I'm in my mid 30's and began experiencing abdominal pain on my upper right abdomen right below the rib cage for 3-4 months now. I first got checked by a gastro physician after a few weeks of pain, and the they took blood and did ultrasound. They stated nothing looks out of norm and gave me gastro meds. I took some and it didn't help, so I stopped. A little over a month later I began to worry since the pain never left. I went to see a primary physician. They took urine, blood, and another MRI. Urine came back with a little infection perhaps from urinary retention, blood along with std check was fine since there was urine infection, and mri came back fine but they mentioned they were a little darker colored. They told me to try changing my diet perhaps it may be fatty liver. I do occasionally drink and smoke cigarettes when I drink, but have limited that since this happened. However, I do vape daily. Any help or advise would be most appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Your workup is clear except for slight UTI. Treatment for that is easy and manageable. Stay hydrated, use antispasmodics for abdominal pain. Use fiber diet, fresh fruits and vegetables. Hope for the best. Visit our IBS health center for further information.

Take care
