I have noticed pain under right rib cage, which happens usually after I urinate. I have this pain for a week or a little bit more. Thought it does not last for a long time it worries me a lot. I would like to know if that could be some kidney disease. Could it be my right kidney is damaged, and how could I take care of it?
I cannot tell you right diagnosis just with this symptom you said. Your doctor should look you, and perform physical exam, with testing you and complete anamnesis. That is the only way to tell you exactly if that is some kidney problem or something else. There are some other organs under right rib cage, not just right kidney. I would strongly recommend you to see a doctor as soon as it is possible. Until then, I shall say to you something about symptoms for some kidney diseases. Kidney stones, for example, will cause bleeding and pain within the urinary tract. The pain from stones will be sharp and easily localized. Kidney stones do not generally cause increased pain and urinary urgency when recumbent. Urinary tract infections are usually painful regardless of the body's position and may be especially noticeable when lying down. I do not know if you recognized any symptoms with yourself, anyway you need to check that with your doctor.
This may or may not make a difference but lately I've noticed that I seem to get this rash under my skin. It looks like little blood spots. Then they go away.
Hope all goes well.
Did you ever had chance to do liver biopsy? This examn will take a tisse of your liver needed for exact test. There are diverse tests for viral hepatitis, so called hepatitis markers. It could easily be an viral hepatitis B or jaundice.
Here are some of the main (chronic and viral) Hepatitis symptoms:
Ascites (swelling in the stomach area)
Decline in sex drive
Edema (swelling of the hands, feet & legs)
Eye or eyesight problems (blurred vision or dry eyes)
Gray, yellow, white or light colored stools
Hepatalgia (pain or discomfort in liver area)
Inflammation in the joints
Jaundice (yellowing of eyes and/or skin)
Mood changes or swings
Sensitivity to heat or cold
Slow healing and recovery
Excessive weight loss or weight gain
If you have several of symptoms listed above, I suggest you to see a specialist (an gastroenterologist) to determine what's wrong with you!
I hope this will help you!
I had a similar pain around my chest/under my ribcage a few years ago. One doctor thought it could be an inflammation of the chest wall lining, and although he couldn't confirm the diagnosis, he did prescribe an antibiotic which took care of it. Good luck!
