Gastroenterology/Pain in URQ With Back Pain


Hello. For the past two years I have had severe pain in the upper right part of my abdomen. In 2013 I had a perforated bowel because of an ulcer and since I started working I jave noticed some things. First, the pain seems to be only when i have been lifting or moving, second it is sharp between my shoulder blades and in the URQ, sometimes after eating my back will hurt even with no movement, and lastly ibuprofen does not prevent or help the pain.

Dear Carly,

Your pain may have various reasons and do not take it easy. I presume the sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, biliary type. I do not think that taking Ibuprofen after history of the ulcer is a good idea.
It will be unprofessional to give you medical advice without knowing your medical date, age, body composition, medications, eating habits, tests, etc. If you are serious about your condition,
you need professional advice.

Fill up the Biotherapy’s Patient Questionnaire and send it to me by email or fax.
After that, call to my office for a phone consultation. I help many with your situation. It is my everyday job.

Have good health.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment. It includes healing diet, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, healing mineral water, abdominal massage, and cleansing techniques. All these practices are widely used by gastroenterologists all over the world.

I have helped many of my patients with the chronic digestive disorders by using the non-drug, non-knife approach for the 20 years.
