Disease prevention and treatment

Right sided abdominal pain: Viral hepatitis b a possible cause.

Pain in the upper abdomen can often be attributed to temporary problems such as indigestion or gas. Persistent or severe upper abdominal pain that does not resolve within a day or two may be a symptom of a serious medical condition.

Hepatitis B is a viral disease marked by a slow, simmering inflammation of the liver. It can be mild and last for a few weeks or chronic, leading to serious liver disease and even death. Symptoms may begin one to three months after infection, but liver scarring and damage can take years to accrue.

How Does Hepatitis B Cause Stomach Pain? Bile is stored in the gallbladder. When bile production is thwarted, inflammation of the gallbladder may occur, causing pain and cramping typically in the upper right abdomen. The liver also produces a protein called albumin. When production of albumin is impaired, there can be a build-up of fluid or ascites in the stomach, causing pain.

Symptoms of hepatitis B, whether acute or chronic, should always be brought to the attention of a health care provider.CLICK TO SEE CURE.
