RUQ tenderness pain just below the rib cage. Its really hard to pinpoint or rule out where the pain is coming from. Its a tender like pain usually gets worst after a meal or when its not. Sudden movements will trigger it, lifting something or hunching over or crouching will also trigger it. I was also diagnosed with fatty liver about 7-8 months ago. I beat it by exercise, healthy diet lifestyle,but the pain is still there. It was confirmed by a second ultrasound test and showed up 100% negative and my liver fat reduced dramatically with very little signs of fat deposits on my liver. My liver enzymes was also slightly elevated by 10%
The pain was ruled out by rib pain about a year ago when it happen and it wasn't as tender before. Its more of an annoyance rather than a constant thing. It is chronic, it has been going on and on and on. Even on percs doesn't make it go away.
Now my pcp wants me to do a Hida scan to see how my gallbladder is functioning but then my glad bladder shows normal on the ultrasound as well as my other organs they scanned.

I know this is a spine forum and that's is the main reason why I am here. My doctor has probably overlooked it and I do have horrible posture, I am male, 5'4, 30 years old. A bit overweight by 10-15lbs. For many many years I have spent a lot of time on a computer, I'm also a A+ Tech and a pc gamer, I noticed that my right feet flares when I walk and when I stand I always see my left leg straight and my right knee point out forward sorta like a model pose lol!

And when bend down and pick up things, I noticed my lower back spine hurts and also affects my neck. Could it be my posture has cause some pressure tenderness on my right organs perhaps the large intestine? There is no pain on my left side abdomen. I was told to see a chiropractor to see if adjustments will help but they are so darn expensive. But should I give it a shot?
