upset stomach

Dear Doc,

I have this mild discomfort on the bottom right of my rib cage....I get quiet bloated occasionally and feel lightheaded and get a headache. Often I too feel like a pulling sensation on my right - almost a tightness.

My stool is yellow in colour and hence I know something is just not gelling. Please could you help with a diagnosis as I try to eat as healthy as possible. And what I can do to ease and correct the problem.

Many thanks for the attention.

Dear JC
I would recommend that you have a medical examination as soon as possible because these kinds of symptoms could indicate liver disease that requires medical treatment. Once we have a diagnosis we can see how to change your diet.
Hope the dr can assist to pinpoint what is causing your symptoms.
Best regards

Hi Doc,

Went to the doctor yesterday and had an abdominal ultrasound done but everything came back ok.

I forgot to mention that I feel somewhat constipated and irregular and passing of constant wind.

Can you help?

Many thanks,
