Pain in Upper Right Abdomen

I have hurting in my right side. They have done all kinds of tests and cannot find what’s wrong. The hurting is at the top of my right side below right breast.

Not knowing any other symptoms or your lifestyle, I really don’t know.

It could possibly be a gall bladder problem, in which case bitter herbs like dandelion root help to liquify the bile to avoid the formation of stones. Since you have been examined, and they have not found stones, this should be a safe remedy. For people who have pain in this area without having been examined by a doctor, it can be dangerous, since liquifying the bile to promote movement of stone could cause an existing stone to become stuck in the bile duct. If it is a gall bladder problem, you should avoid all fatty foods, all dairy products and sugar.
