Avatar_f_tn 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>pain is still there as well as background-color: #dae8f4'>pain in my upper back and by my background-color: #dae8f4'>left shoulder blade, the bottom background-color: #dae8f4'>of it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> armpit, sometimes the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> radiates into the chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib but rarely. The background-color: #dae8f4'>pain is sometimes dull, and then changes to a small sharp background-color: #dae8f4'>pain and then to a very sharp sore background-color: #dae8f4'>pain. It's always there so it seems and it worries me.
1524673_tn?1327845100 For the past 8 days I have had <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib. Gets worse when I eat, walk around, or take a deep breath. Ruled out Gallbladder. Have had vomiting, nausia, sweats and unbelievable background-color: #dae8f4'>pain after eating anything. Sitting up for long periods background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
Avatar_f_tn At the same time, I experience some numbness in my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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. I feel that if I could release gas that my tummy would feel better. My menstrual cycles are wacked out. I have seen a chiropractor, thinking that I might have a pinched nerve.
Avatar_f_tn The organs that are on the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>side would be the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the spleen. Gall bladder disease may present with <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-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 background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
Avatar_n_tn I had troube breathing then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> rib cage. I seemed to feel better for quite some time but over the last few months the breathing difficulty and background-color: #dae8f4'>pain is back with vengence. I have had 2 upper GI's and 1 lower colon check done over the last 3 years with nothing found. 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of pop and dairy.
Avatar_n_tn I too have had chronic <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib cage. My <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> radiates up by rib cage to the center <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then through to the back and up background-color: #dae8f4'>under the background-color: #dae8f4'>right shoulder blade. I had my gallbladder out 07/23/02. I had pancreatitis at the time and was hospitalized for six days for them to get the pancreatitis background-color: #dae8f4'>under control before they could remove my gallbladder. I have had the background-color: #dae8f4'>pain (to varying degrees) ever since I had the surgery.
554720_tn?1278501326 Bad background-color: #dae8f4'>pain in upper background-color: #dae8f4'>right background-color: #dae8f4'>side.. severe, better when i lay down started sudden.
Avatar_n_tn Dear fowl, I have the same <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib cage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> goes to background-color: #dae8f4'>under my arm pit and to the back. I get the background-color: #dae8f4'>pain mostly during the mor ning when I get out background-color: #dae8f4'>of bed, It's like some is pressed or moved to cause the background-color: #dae8f4'>pain.I went to the doctor and I was diaognised with H-Pylori.This is a micro-organism ( bacteria) that lives and hides in the blood and usually attacks the stomach lining or lower aesophagus.
Avatar_n_tn The background-color: #dae8f4'>pain, which takes turns being located in my mid/top <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> abdomen, directly <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my lower rib cage, lower <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>side background-color: #dae8f4'>of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> shoulder, seems to subbackground-color: #dae8f4'>side when I first get up in the morning. I comes back, usually in the abdominal area during the day, then is agonizing background-color: #dae8f4'>under the ribs and back later. Nearly two years ago my heart started fluttering and skipping beats.
Avatar_f_tn Here are my symptoms, background-color: #dae8f4'>of late - <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> lower <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> rib area <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> lower <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib area (not as frequent or as intense) background-color: #dae8f4'>pain in the center (maybe where my stomach is?) background-color: #dae8f4'>pain in my background-color: #dae8f4'>right front collarbone background-color: #dae8f4'>pain in my upper middle back (between my shoulder blades) Cloudy urine (may not be related) Stinky gas and a lot background-color: #dae8f4'>of it (could be a change in diet??
Avatar_f_tn My symptoms included <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lower abdominal <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> which radiated to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. A week later, the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> has subbackground-color: #dae8f4'>sided a lot but I'm still background-color: #dae8f4'>left with this weird pressure and fullness below my background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of my gallbladder, liver, pancreas and kidney.
Avatar_n_tn Same thing mostly here, although I've had it for about 8 months. Dull <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>side <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> rib cage, but can also flare up around the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> more. i get alot background-color: #dae8f4'>of gas that isn't normal. I burp from drinking water...heh...sometimes even when not consuming anything for hours. stomach gets sour from everything but soup. i live on pepcid AC. No insurance here, so a doc is pretty much out background-color: #dae8f4'>of the question for now. sometimes when lying down i can feel it throb or "pulsing" too.
Avatar_n_tn Hi I recently picked up a four gallon water and i suddenly had a severe lower back <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I got a massage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is mild. On Monday I wake up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have severe <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the rib cage. If I stand still and turne background-color: #dae8f4'>left it feels very background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of doctor shold I visit??
Avatar_n_tn Also, I have found that I produce dark urine now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have severe lower <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-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.
Avatar_n_tn I too had the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pressure <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> ribcage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>underbackground-color: #dae8f4'>side background-color: #dae8f4'>of your rib cage.
Avatar_n_tn but, by wednesday nite I nearly collasped (so nauseated, sharp <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in upper adominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>side, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sharp <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> shooting down my legs, my legs felt so weak.......so, went home early from work.......going back to the doc tommorrow to beg for HELP........I can't take all this misery no more!!!
Avatar_n_tn I recently was diagnosed with Diverticulosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> IBS. I have had a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my lower <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib cage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> around my lower background-color: #dae8f4'>right ovary area. The background-color: #dae8f4'>pain is further complicated due to a pinched disk in my lower back found when I was admitted to the hospital for four days background-color: #dae8f4'>of tests recurrence background-color: #dae8f4'>of these problems has gone on for one year last october and finally got to the point I couldn't handle anymore.
Avatar_m_tn 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>/rib joint which could explain the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. But they say it's hard to manipulate, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> countless attempts to shift the background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>right/lower back area, but this is not conclusive.
Avatar_f_tn 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 = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib too. i have extreme background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of headaces. it seems im falling apart. one other thing i have like fatty coming through my background-color: #dae8f4'>left rib also . can someone help please?
Avatar_f_tn I felt again like I was coming down with the flu, had been suffering with vertigo, trouble swallowing, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of esophagus, etc.- it's been 8 months background-color: #dae8f4'>of tests and doctors- and they all tell me they don't know what is wrong with me.
Avatar_n_tn background-color: #dae8f4'>pain returned, feeling as if something was swelling <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> rib cage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pressing against the bone, both front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. Emergency room visit resulted in two apparent partial blockages in background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>of nuclear product, the test was not available for 8 weeks.
Avatar_n_tn After a bout with 6 wk virus and dose background-color: #dae8f4'>of cipro for (what was thought to be diverticulitis) started having <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> front/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> rib cage. A few weeks later same <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> front/back background-color: #dae8f4'>left background-color: #dae8f4'>side rib cage. Have had few episodes where feels like food not moving out background-color: #dae8f4'>of stomach very quickly. Have had occasional stabbing background-color: #dae8f4'>pains up in background-color: #dae8f4'>right chest area and corresponding in back background-color: #dae8f4'>side background-color: #dae8f4'>under background-color: #dae8f4'>right shoulder blade (assume Gall bladder). Had an ultrasound-no stones and all organs look fine.
Avatar_n_tn About a month after the GERD diagnosis I developed a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> flank. The <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is maybe 3 inches above my bottom rib but it is difficult to pinpoint an exact location with one finger. It sometimes moves from flank to the background-color: #dae8f4'>left center background-color: #dae8f4'>under ribs. The background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
