I've had heartburn for the last 10 years as a result of medication, once my doctor tried me on prilosec but I didn't like the side effects...seemed kind of dumb to get side effects from a drug to treat side effects of my other drugs...But since I started coming to this forum I decided to make an appt. with a gastroenterologist and make sure I'm not damaging my digestive system.
I have the same upper abdominal ache under left rib but I also feel the pain on upper left abdomen also. I have had every test available except ERCP and everything keeps coming back normal. My doc now is calling it IBS which I do not agree with since I do not have Diarrhea (besides 1 or 2 soft bm every morning) and I do not have constipation. If you every get a diagnosis please post it so that it can help others.

I keep getting a dull ache, just under the ribs, both sides, though moreoften on the right - it's often uncomfortable to lie on my right side.

We are both at the end of our ropes! I have a constant, mild burning pain in my right side, halfway down the ribcage. The pain worsens when that small area makes me nauseous after bowel movements and remains sore for hours, even days. I was having bleeding with bowel movements, but the dr. gave me erythromycin to see if it would help my stomach empty faster. It stopped the bleeding, but the side effects of the medicine made me feel terrible! I do have a recurring low-grade fever of 99.1-100.

My 3 year old daughter has had a off & on stomach ache for just a little over 2 weeks now. I took her to the pediatrician on Friday 7-14-06 & she said she thought it was acid reflux & gave samples of prevacid. She said we should see improvement in 3-4 days & I could also give her pepto if she still hurts later in day after prevacid. We have seen no improvement & last night I had to give her the pepto. I don't feel I should be giving her both of these meds everyday.

I am confident its not my heart. I get some intermitent dis comfort on the right side..just below the right ribs, but sometimes lower. Also, I get an intermitent chest ache just under right breast towards the middle....sometimes a bit of discomfort under right shoulder blade. I seem to have gas, and the other night I had moderate heartburn right in the middle relieved by 150 mg. of zantac. I have had this chest ache and just below the rib discomfort off and on for a year...never gets worse...
