Hello doctor, I am experiencing random discomfort just below the right ribcage(near about area attached in image). This arises sometime when I sit or had some meal or extensive exercise may be. While walking or standing it reduces to almost 90% or goes away unnoticeable (That's my observation) This random discomfort is from long time say 2years. I had my liver function test during that but all fine. I am confused is this a muscle cramps because it last for short period of time not more than half an hour or goes away unknowingly. Doctor what do you should suggest to get rid of this. Thanks, PATIENT
