Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and upper back pain right side

heartburn

Whilst the Diarrhoea lasted, I had two forms of pain cramps and pain in the mid to upper right side (under my ribs). The pain was dull with periods of sharp pains that lasted between 5 and 20 minutes. I was also being woken several times at night with a pain just below my sternum and on the right side that prevented me from breathing properly. The only way to slightly relieve it was to pass urine but I would wake a few hours later with the same pain.
Since my two trips to the ER, I have had some extreme pain in my chest and stomache area, and I believe it to be related to some kind of acid reflux, or heartburn, or something like that. The pain is pretty severe at times, and I am afraid to eat. I sometimes stay up for hours with very severe pains that keep me awake. I take Maalox, Mylanta, tums, tylenol, and advil pm to aleviate the pain, but nothing seems to help. I was prescribed Protonix yesterday by the doctor at the clinic.
Starting 3/02, I had constant upper right under rib pain. I went to GI doctor and had upper GI, Ultrasound, liver bloodwork, hydascan done. Nothing showed up. I also had CT of the kidneys, since I have kidney stones that have not moved. One report said "There are 2 calcifications in the right upper quadrant. Ultrasound of this area showed no stone in either the gallbladder or kidney. The significance of this is uncertain. IMPRESSION: Right upper quadrant calcifications.
Shes 13 now, so I have had it for a while.,.. My question is does anyone know WHY my heartburn pain starts in my upper back, right behind my heart area, and then proceeds to a bad burning sensation in my neck and throat...its very painful and is relieved my antacids, although only for a short period of time, which leaves me taking several doses before all is over.
When I told the surgeon about the side pain he said everyone has aches and pains and all my tests came back negative(liver, kidney, gallbladder) since then the pain has grown significantly. I also feel like I've pulled a muscle in my side and I feel pressure all the way to my rectal area. I have a cat scan scheduled for this week, an ob-gyn next week and a gastro in March. What could this be? I also have IC.
Very rarely pancreatitis can present with a right sided upper abdominal pain and not the typical pain in upper abdomen going to the back. This too is easily detected by CT scan and pancreatic enzymes. I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system). It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I am a 40 year old female who is undergoing some SEVERE upper right quadrant pain. Started approx. mid-afternoon, several hours after a light lunch, felt like someone had punched me in my sternum, radiates to the right quandrant to the right scapula area. Had light dinner fearful to eat anything heavy but also fearful that it is being caused by an empty stomach. Took Zantac and Tums, Mylanta with no relief. Up all night in severe pain, no change of position seemed to make it better.
However 8 years ago I started to have these sever pains with which I used divol that seemed to worked if I popped three in my mouth one time. As of one year ago I got this excruciating pain in the same top right hand side of my stomach which is now a bit tender and puffy. I went to the doctor who give me morphine injections to stop the pain. Sometimes when I vomit it helps sometimes I have to go to ER for the pain injections.
Keep me posted as to your check-ups. I have been having pain in the right side below the right rib cage for a while now, sometimes a burning sensation. I have had an abdominal scan and an ulltrasound ab done; also a pelvic ultrasound. Everything comes out normal. The liver has small cysts, but they told me not to worry. I am going for an endoscopy on Feb 6th. It is very frustrating. If someone shares similar symptoms, could you please let me know what, if anything, you have found out?
I am a 22 year old female with a history of good health. For the past few weeks, I have experienced severe pain in my lower right pelvic area just above my hip. I consulted my doctor and he ordered a CT scan which showed a 2cm ovarian cyst on the right ovary. I waited until I started my period to see if the cyst would rupture on it's own, as they normally do. The last day of my period was Saturday and on Sunday I started having severe pain just below my ribs on the right side.
I also had a HIDA scan due to upper right abdominal pain and my ejection fraction was at 52 percent- MRCP was done which looks at the duct work to liver, gallbladder and pancreas- all looked fine.

Did they order in your many blood tests an AFP tumor marker test regarding your liver lesions?
my pain is below right hand rib knawing ache and also upper quadrant going from my side rib cage to my back its pretty unbearable. as i stated in 18/3/02 post a comment i had all tests last year but all they found was a polp or small stone in gallbladder (then it was not visible on 2nd ct scan what was visible was small liver cysts from the ultrasound which they tell me its nothing to worry about. i also have a slling sliding hernia. anybody got any ideas.

I have had pain/burning in my upper left side for most of this year. It started as something that would come on after I ate. I would have "attacks" of strong burning on my upper left side and a sharp pain in one spot on the left next to my ribs. I stopped eating fat, except for very little, and dairy. I eat rice, bread and very bland foods...along with very small meals. This has made the pain less but it is always there...every day.
CT scans, ultrasounds and MRIs all came back neg for stones. Pain varied between dull and intense, and I eventually began suffering from other symptoms including body aches, chronic diarrhea, occasional rashes and iritis. Follow-up w/GI and rheumatologist.
I have acid reflux although the pain is present at times when reflux and heartburn are absent. It's on the right side, under my last rib - usually on my back though lately moves to the side as well as the front, depending. I'm extremely uncomfortable and I'm starting to feel like I'm nuts. I was glad to see that others here share my problem so at least I'm not alone. Any feedback?

I am so concerned. The pain under my ribcage and right side is still there and now seems to be radiating to lower right abdomen and lower back.

I have asked my doctor about taking synthroid (I took it years ago and had no side effect). His answer to me was his wife takes it and its ok. I will address the pain with him but I sure don't want to go through any more changes with taking a different medicine. I feel overwhelmed at the different things that still have to be addressed. Do any of you ever feel that way. The worse is over but there are still lots of things to address. Thanks for your help.
After the course was over my symptoms of pain became worse and I began to have night sweats, tremendous weakness in extremeties, heartburn, and lightheadedness and the pain now radiated down into hip as well.

The extreme pain from the endometriosis has returned and I also have very creepy crawly feelings in my legs,even pain and a lot of charlie horses. I have a pain in my upper back on either side sometimes that is very sharp when I breathe in. Sometimes I even have sharp pain in my chest. It seem like these pains are related to pms because they are close to that time. It seems because of my age my pms has gotten worse,I am much more irritable.
Now, before I had the MRI, I came in to work (I have a computer desk job) and when I sat down I felt a horrible, sharp pain on the left side of my upper back that still aches/burns from time to time. Thinking that I'm not mobile enough and should do more stretching during work, I started doing just that. I began doing neck/shoulder stretches, and 2 days later I had a stiff neck.
Over time it spread to my right groin and up into my right abdomen. The pain subsided in my groin and stayed on in my right side lower abdomen. It was constant and worsened by activity and sitting down. It only seemed to be relieved by laying down--and sometimes not even then. Tests showed now internal organ damage or hernias.
The pain started on the left side as well at the base of my back and right above my butt cheek. That pain has become so severe that I am now having difficulty walking, sleeping or sitting. No amount of repositioning or medications has helped. The closest I come to any relief is sleeping in a papasan chair. I became terrified that this was a heart problem, but have been told repeatedly that it is not. Now the pain has worked it's way across to my other leg as well.
