Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
I went through your post about abdominal pain.
Pain in the right upper quadrant can occur in many conditions.
It can occur if there is hepatitis (liver issue), cholecystitis (gallbladder issue), gastritis/peptic ulcer and pancreatitis ( pancreas issue).
You have given a good information about the nature of the pain.
According to the information given by you, you have an intermittent type of pain that lasts for only a few minutes.
Of the four possible causes I have mentioned above, gastritis/ulcer disease fit in.
I would advise you to take omeprazole for pain relief.
If there is no relief, then a few tests like an upper GI endoscopy, an ultrasound scan of the abdomen are to be done to find the cause.
I hope that answers your question. Would be glad to answer any follow-ups.
Omeprazole is available as an Over the counter drug named Prilosec. Take one tablet per day for 14 days half an hour before a meal.
A few precautionary measures you need to take to prevent it from recurring or getting worse:
1) Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption and carbonated drinks or excessive caffeine
2) Avoid spicy food, deep fried food
3)Avoid foods that cause a lot of gas such as peas, lentils beans, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, bananas, apricots prunes.
4) Avoid staying hungry, make sure you eat at short intervals and maintain a regular eating cycle. Try and have an early dinner.
5)Continue eating rice, vegetable, chicken, fruits, but avoid having them as a spicy preparation.
