Pain in right side
I have a pain in the right hand side which is in line with my belly button but at the furthest point on the side. Its like a dull pain and is worse when I am sitting. It doesn't feel like I have pulled a muscle and I haven't done anything strenuous lately.
If you could explain what the likely cause is I would be grateful. Its more uncomfortable than painful.
I have a family history of diabetes but tests prove I am clear. I have no history of any other illness except perhaps I have had chronic fatigue for a number of years. I suspect lyme disease but tests have always proved inconclusive.
Lyme disease often have a protean manifestion and should not cause the type of symptom you've described. Can you tell us more about this dull ache on the right sid eof your abdomen? For how long has it been there? You said sitting up makes it worse. What about direct pressure to teh site? Does it spread to any where else? Does the pain come in waves? Do you feel sick with it? Any fever? What about any constipation or diarrhoea? Does eating have any relationship with the pain?
Please always rememeber that it is often best to seek urgent medical attention if you have new onset pain that is making you unwell and for which you have no clear explanation.
