I'm 52, female, active, exercise 5-6 days a week- run, yoga, pilates, walking.
About 3 years ago, I had sharp stabbing pains in my right rib cage
, lasted about a week, felt like I had the flu. I rode it out- it went away. (Thought- gallbladder might be starting to act up.)
In 2011- December, again- I felt flu like, dizzy, body aches, severe exhaustion and had a burning pain in my right ribs that would go into excruciating spasms- sent me to my knees a few times.
