Possible Gallbladder problem
Mar 30, 2004

Over the course of the past 2 years I've been experiencing an odd sensation. After I eat or drink anything (water included) I get a strange and sometimes painful vibrating feeling in the upper right quadrant of my abs just beside my xiphoid process. At times you can actually see the skin moving! Sometimes the area feels numb and other times there is acute pain. My doctor doesn't seem too concerned so I haven't put too much thought into it. However, my boyfriend prodded me into asking you for help. Is this something to be concerned about or not? Thanks for any insight.

Response from Dr. Henry

Can you provide some details regarding your HIV situation and HIV medications so that I can comment further about what might be going on. KH
