Please Help!
I have this uncomfortable feeling underneath my righthand ribs. Whenever I have eaten or have drunk something I have this feeling. In the evening when I go and sleep I find it difficult to lie on either side. It feels as if everything is swollen and my organs are pressing against each other. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Joe
Could be a liver or galbladder problem - I would advise a liverfunction test and maybe a sonar to exclude stones or chronic infection.
