Stomach pain under left rib and right back

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain under left rib and right back


The hospital told me it was due to the constipation but a couple weeks ago I'd started moving my bowels everyday again but the pain is still there as well as pain in my upper back and by my left shoulder blade, the bottom of it and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left armpit, sometimes the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> radiates into the chest and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> but rarely. The pain is sometimes dull, and then changes to a small sharp pain and then to a very sharp sore pain. It's always there so it seems and it worries me.
For the past 8 days I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span>. Gets worse when I eat, walk around, or take a deep breath. Ruled out Gallbladder. Have had vomiting, nausia, sweats and unbelievable pain after eating anything. Sitting up for long periods of time hurts, need to lean back to give more room to the area. I am not overweight, my diet is not fatty, do not drink. Have a very busy life, work, kids, grandkids, ect. 48 years old. No heartburn or not much.
At the same time, I experience some numbness in my right arm and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right breast and shoulder blade. I have had a sonogram for my gullbladder and the test came back good. I recently had a colonoscopy and that too, came out good. I sometimes have stomach distension and constipation is a daily thing.

The organs that are on the left side would be the s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>mach and the spleen. Gall bladder disease may present with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the midline, some would even have symptoms such as vomiting, as the stomach may be affected as well. An evaluation of the gallbladder would be among the things to do, and it seems that nothing suspicious came up with yours. Was the lump itself included in the ultrasound? Chances are, the ultrasound may only have been for liver, the gallbladder, and their connections.
I had troube breathing then and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> cage. I seemed to feel better for quite some time but over the last few months the breathing difficulty and pain is back with vengence.

Upon my last visit to a new GI doctor - he said thatI had air in my stomach and put me on some medication and told me to stay of pop and dairy.

My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> radiates up by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> cage to the center and then through to the back and up under the right shoulder blade.

My symptoms included right upper and lower abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> which radiated to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. A week later, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> has subsided a lot but I'm still left with this weird pressure and fullness below my right rib. It almost feels likes my skin is pushing through my rib and when I bend over or sit, it feels blocked and full in that area. I went to the doctor they were concerned about my gall bladder. I had an ultrasound of my gallbladder, liver, pancreas and kidney.
Same thing mostly here, although I've had it for about 8 months.

No insurance here, so a doc is pretty much out of the question for now. sometimes when lying down i can feel it throb or "pulsing" too.
Hi I recently picked up a four gallon water and i suddenly had a severe lower back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I got a massage and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is mild. On Monday I wake up and I have severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> cage. If I stand still and turne left it feels very painful and I am not sure if it is a muscle. But something does get pulled when I do that. I am not sure if it is a muscle or an organ. It hurts a little when I walk and I can bearly put my socks on. Any clue on what studies or what type of doctor shold I visit??
Also, I have found that I produce dark urine now and have severe lower left and right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that acetaminophen seems to help. I am not ignoring it, though, just taking a breather from all the doctors. I will go back to see a doctor (not sure who, yet) but you can be guaranteed I will return!!!! Please do not loose faith, keep pushing and advocating for yourself.
I too had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and pressure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> right ribcage and into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> and over time felt like a swollen organ, a pinching for over 2 years. After hydrascans, ct scans and sonograms that came back normal, I switched primary care provider to an NP that had pain management background. She knew exactly what the problem was. There is a muscle that runs from your back to your front and is attached to the underside of your rib cage.

I recently was diagnosed with Diverticulosis and IBS. I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my lower right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> cage and around my lower right ovary area. The pain is further complicated due to a pinched disk in my lower back found when I was admitted to the hospital for four days of tests recurrence of these problems has gone on for one year last october and finally got to the point I couldn't handle anymore.
I've been getting monthly osteopathic treatment for years now, and they did think there is sensitivity in the lowest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> joint which could explain the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. But they say it's hard to manipulate, and countless attempts to shift the pain have had little lasting benefit, leaving me doubting if this is really the cause. I will say that when rolling on my back (for exercises) there is some sensitivity somewhere below my right/lower back area, but this is not conclusive.
i took antibiotics for them for a while . now my symptoms are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> full force. i also have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> too. i have extreme pain in my back but i have three herniated disk so that could be that causing that. lately i am experiencing sore throat and lots of headaces. it seems im falling apart. one other thing i have like fatty coming through my left rib also . can someone help please?
I felt again like I was coming down with the flu, had been suffering with vertigo, trouble swallowing, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right ribs. After trip to ER- seeing 9 doctors total including 3 neurologists- after various mri's on head and neck and thoracic spine, various X-rays of esophagus, etc.- it's been 8 months of tests and doctors- and they all tell me they don't know what is wrong with me.

Emergency room visit resulted in two apparent partial blockages in left ureter, probable cause. Referred to urology and told to restrict fluid intake. CT scan showed the blockages and nuclear renal scan ordered to measure flow and determine if resection needed or do repair through ureter. Due to lack of nuclear product, the test was not available for 8 weeks.

A few weeks later same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> front/back left side rib cage.

About a month after the GERD diagnosis I developed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on my left flank. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is maybe 3 inches above my bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rib</span> but it is difficult to pinpoint an exact location with one finger. It sometimes moves from flank to the left center under ribs. The pain is always there and is not affected by movement, breathing, eating, or bowel movements. It seems to be a bit worse when lying down and it invariably wakes me up at night.
