May 22, 2005
hi dr I have been feeling this strange pain in my right rib cage, particularly on the back ribs that lie on the right side and seem quite jaundiced at times. is this hepatitis??? Its been going on for a couple of months now along with some abdominal distress, have had multiple sex partners (january through march). please help I'm scared!!
Response from Dr. McGovern
Jaundice that comes and goes is very unusual. Please go to your physician for a thorough physical examination and evaluation. You also need to let him or her know that you have had multiple sex partners so you can get appropriate testing.
Please save me from a trip to Europe, urgent!!!second time!!
urgent treatment required or not
