Causes Tightness In The Right Chest When Lying Down And Right Lower Abdominal Pain?
Hello dokI want to ask about my illness. I had already been treated and had a CT scan at the RSPI. And the results are normal. It’s just during the SGPT and SGOT tests. My SGPT is high at 95. Is the tightness in my right upper chest when lying down because of fatty liver? Or is there something else? Because according to the SPD doctor I had to go to a gastro doctor. So far, I urinated normally. Normal stool. It’s just that the upper right chest is tight when going to sleep. And the lower right abdomen hurts a little when pressed. And this right upper abdomen hurts too. And translucent to the right shoulder blade. I am tired of seeking treatment but nothing has changed.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Complaints that you experience with abdominal pain and feeling shortness when going to sleep can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Stomach acid disease
Enlarged liver, for example due to a viral infection
And it could also be other causes depending on the results of the examination. As for the high SGPT test results, the number 95 is indeed high considering that normally it should be in the range of 7-56 IU / l. But usually the number that really means is 2-3 times higher than the normal number. So indeed the results of these tests are still not enough to know your diagnosis.
Regarding your condition, what needs to be understood also is that some diseases do not show obvious symptoms, so they cannot be detected immediately in 1-2 examinations. There are even conditions where the patient must pass several examinations by different specialists before the diagnosis and the best treatment is found. If you have not experienced any changes, we suspect that the condition you are experiencing is not unique so your doctor has difficulty determining the actual condition you are experiencing, or another possibility is that the treatment cannot be instant, and must go through treatment for some time first.
Our advice, check yourself with a specialist gastrologist as recommended by your internal medicine doctor to find out the tendency of the disease and the best treatment. Only this time, ask clearly what is the estimated disease, what are the results of the examination, why are the results of other tests normal, how is the hope of recovery and what are the future treatment plans. These questions are more appropriate to ask the doctor who treats you because they check you straight away. Feel free to ask everything that you feel is inappropriate because it is your right.
Meanwhile, avoid consuming spicy, sour, and greasy foods, don't eat too much at one time, consume warm water, and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
