Am having alot of upper right abdominal pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and referred pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> to my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> and back and chest. The dr has given me levsin which helps quite a bit with the abdominal pain but not with the constant pressure or the referred pain. Is there any treatment that will help with the referred pain?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> following surgery is caused by the CO2 gas they use in the abdominal cavity to see the organs more clearly. Much of the gas gets trapped after they complete surgery and it can take several weeks for the body to rid itself of it. Sometimes the pain reaches the shoulder.
Same here, had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> with my dermoids (both ovaries). Must be another symptom. What we women have to go through. It is amazing at what two little organs can do!!! My prayers are with you.
I woke up one morning with a stiff neck and with more studying, I found the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> to be behind my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade. I have tried many things. My doctor gave me some muscle relaxers in an attempt to make the muscle relieve it's tension. Also I have used a muscle stimulant on's a device that stimulates the muscle with electrical impulses that "work" the muscle. Tried about everything, but to no avail.
I had my gall bladder removed over a year ago, and still have the right upper abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, which kind of radiates to my back and up my chest. Seems to involve my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> and arm also... I have been to the doctor and nothing can be found....I'm not sure what to do at this point...any suggestions?
im having right abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for weeks..for some time i had fever with shivering esp at nigh..d pain is tolerable but its reoccuring,like d feeling when you have it appendicitis?i have hiatal hernia,is it connected to what im feeling right now?
One year ago, I started having chest pains/upper abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al and right sided mid area pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that would go to the right back and up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades and under the right rib cage. I also have burning pain and my stomach is distended and at times get nauseated. I have seen 2 doctors plus a pulmonologist. upper GI Barium showed a sliding hiatal hernia and a possible stricture. Had Endoscopy and revelaed Grade 2 Esophagitis. Nexium 40mg x 2 a day. No help.
This time after a few days went by, I was getting up from doing something, and something happened in my neck and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> area. I had the most excusiating pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my neck, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> and arm. I began getting these sharp stabbing pains down my right arm and also the right side of my chest and shoulder area. The pain was like no pain i've ever felt. It laid me up for about 4 days, just laying on the couch. I never went to the doctor due to insurace reasons.
I had my gallbladder out 5 years ago because of some discomfort and gallstones shown on an ultrasound. About 5 hours after I awoke from surgery, I experienced an awful pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> just below my sternum and I could not breath or talk and spent the next 3-5 hours in debilitating pain with vomiting. The surgeon just told me that I had a rough night. Anyways, I spent the next couple of years having these sporadic attacks of pain lasting around 5 hrs. on average.
Some people have commented that they have had their gallbladders removed and still get upper right quadrant pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> point pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. This for me started 5 years after my gall bladder removal- I have severe pain (7-10 out of 10 daily untreated by pain meds). I had an operation that removed severe adhesion, left me 1200 out of pocket even after pribate health etc.
I have been having pain in my upper right abdomen (under my ribs) for a few weeks now. It is often sharp pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that also radiates to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>, right arm, and back, especially between my should blades. The pain is always in the exact same spots, never moves lower or to the left. When my dr presses on that area, it is painful enough to bring tears to my eyes. I also often have nausea with the pain, but never vomited.
Now it has been 2 months and what was an area that I could put pressure on with one finger has become a whole hand plus more and is a constant searing pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. The pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> also migrates into my back and under my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade. I have seen my family doctor as well as emergency room doctors. Urine tests have been done and there is no infection there. I used to be able to sit or lay down to alleviate the pain but sitting no longer helps and now I must lay on my right side to get relief.
The second consequence is related to the lower GI tract, where diarrhea and colicky lower abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> may result.[2] This article mainly addresses the general issues of PCS. PCS reportedly affects about 10-15% of patients. in this author's experience, PCS has occurred in 14% of patients.
I've been reading all of these posts regarding "upper abdominal pain", specifically the ones mentioning pain under the right ribs. I've been trying to find a cause of my pain, which is similar to all of yours, except I can't say that what I have is PAin. It's more of an ache, a dull kind of annoyance more than anything. It gets a little worse at times, but it's never as bad as all of yours seems to be.
upper right quadrant pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> can be caused by the liver and gallbladder. Obtaining an abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al ultrasound would be a reasonable initial test, along with blood tests looking at the liver enzymes. If negative, you can consider an upper GI series or upper endoscopy - which can look for various causes of dyspepsia such as GERD, an ulcer or inflammation of the upper digestive tract. I would also consider blood tests looking for the bacteria H Pylori - which is associated with ulcers or inflammation.
My SOD pressure was 120 and a sphincterotomy was performed and a temp stint was put in. I had a wierd pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> for 4 days and now my RUQ pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> has returned. Has anyone had a sphincteotomy that didn't work? If you did, what was your next step? Thanks so much for your help! I know how frustrating this can be.
always tender to the<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my chest. mid back, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades..all tests normal for gallbladder...but i still seem to think that its my gallbladder....but the thing of it is that when this all started...i started to experience what seems like panic attacks...has anyone experienced panic attacks....had their gallbladder out...and the attacks were gone?????? thanx for any info.
I have pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al area, sometimes around my navel and sometimes around my upper abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al area, it almost feels like it is right under my ribcage. It also hurts in my back sometimes lower, upper and middle of back. It also feels uncomfortable at times when I take a deep breath. Its not really pain but it feels full, its very weird. I was diagnosed with gastritis last year, but this is not the same pain. I am so worried that have something serious, and have not been able to sleep.
but annoying) My pain is in lower back that somehow I feel the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> has something to do with the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al area connected through the muscles above my knees like having a menstrual cramps but not exactly as that painful. and they are not happening @ the same time just like you, lower back pain wakes me up early in the morning and it is gone after half/hr. I get up. My abdominal pain happens I think several hrs. after a meal but not each meal.
I'm a 35 year old female. I have been having a problem with lower right abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, that sometimes radiates to the lower right back, a lot of gas and bloating. I have been seen different doctors for this problem and I have had several tests performed, including blood tests (normal), urinalysis (normal), stool (normal), abdominal ultrasound (normal). Two years ago I had laparoscopic surgery where some ovarian cysts were removed. After the surgery, I still had the same pain.
For about the past year, I have been having infrequent upper abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that recently has been followed with intense vomiting. The pain comes out of nowhere, and has started at random times throughout the day. The pain and pressure grow with intensity until I vomit, and then the pain is gone. I have tried taking some deep breaths, but that does not seem to help. The vomiting is so intense that the capillaries above my eyelids burst, leaving me with red "freckles.
I am a 26 year old female that had a brain tumor removed april 3, 2008, and then a vp shunt put in mid may. I have had severe intermittent abdom<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>al pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> since the shunt surgery that sometimes increases when I inhale deeply. in addition I feel spasming in my colon which I have never felt before. I have been to several doctors, including the neurosurgeon who implanted the shunt, and he said he had never heard of pain associated with a shunt, and suggested I see a gastrointestinal specialist.
I am a 50 year old woman with pain/pressure in the upper stomach (at the very top of the stomach area) and also pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>/pressure between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades. My Dr started me on a type of prilosec saying it was most likely acid reflux. I've been on this for a few weeks with no relief. I also get no relief from rolaids, tums etc... The pain/pressure is worse after I eat (it doesn't matter what I eat or how little I eat, always the same).

The pain sharpens after meals that are particularly fatty or greasy. I've also experienced nausea (though no vomiting) & constipation (though my GP claims that my pain killers are the cause of that).
