What would cause upper right quadrant pain?
There are many causes of right quadrant pain. The most common cause is gallbladder disease. Other causes would include liver disease, pancreatic problems or kidney problems. To determine the cause your doctor will take a history and perform a physical exam. At that point he will make recommendations for further testing to confirm his diagnosis.
What do I need to know about caring for somebody with physical pain?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
It is important to remember living with physical pain is uncomfortable and family and friends affected may need your help. Depending on the cause of the physical pain, this may include assisting with daily duties, helping with medications or doctor visits, or offering psychological support in times of need. Encouraging the person to attend a support group may be helpful, especially if the person suffers chronic pain. You may also have to help find psychological counseling if signs of depression begin to appear.
What is bad muscle pain?
Rick Olderman, Physical Therapy, answeredAvoidance of good pain -- ignoring your body's signals -- often leads to "bad" pain. Bad muscle pain is difficult to describe because everyone experiences it differently. It can be sharp or dull, nagging or acute. It is the pain you are trying to eliminate, the pain of injury or dysfunction. It is something you feel that you instinctively know shouldn't be happening.
You should only feel fatigue in the muscles you are targeting. During a biceps curl, for example, if you feel pain at the shoulder or elbow joints while performing the curl, then you know you're experiencing bad pain. The biceps muscles are located between the shoulder and elbow joints. If you feel pain above or below the biceps muscles, it is likely that you are lifting too heavy a load or allowing your elbows to move too much. The habits that cause bad pain ultimately compromise your efforts, leading to tissue vulnerability and weakness -- and more pain.
