Avatar n tn ) I have wicked acid reflux and I take 40 mg of protonix everyday. In june rib and extreme breastbone pain forced me to a surgeon. He checked my pancreas and other organs via bloodwork, then sent me for a barium swallow upper GI series. Everything checked out. We decided to take out the gallbladder, no stones just a polyp. For a while the breastbone pain was gone and the rib tenderness was much better, almost gone. Chest x-rays have come back negative also.

769745 tn?1345750012 In particular, fibromyalgia sufferers are apt to feel neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pack and pain in the waist, ribs, buttocks, and knees. A common example of one such symptom is pungent or strong-smelling urine. The patient may feel embarrassed to even bring up the topic with her physician. Genitourinary symptoms involve the private parts and it is never easy to discuss these details, even with medical professionals.
Avatar n tn I just recently started feeling this very weird pain in my ribs. It started about 4 days ago in the area just below my left breast - it wasn't actually pain when it first started, it was a weird tingly sensitive feeling in just one little small area that I could feel when my shirt would brush up against it a certain way. Well, in the last 4 days it has spread around to my back and it is now on both sides - it is all in my ribcage area.
Avatar n tn I usually get up and go the restroom and it will go away (I don't think going to the restroom has anything to do with the susiding of the pain as much as I think getting up in general does) The placement of the pain was hard to pinpoint when I first began experiencing it years ago. It seemed to fill my abdominal cavity. But now it seems to be located under my left rib cage, particularly around the last three ribs next to the breast bone.
Avatar m tn Hi there Lollie 123 I don't think I can offer to much, But I suggest that you see your Dr, I guest if you could could describe the location of the pain in the ribs. I have a pain in the lower part of my ribs, Its almost the same kind of pain that you get when your preggy, and the baby presses it foot right up the ribcage, my doc told me it had something to to with my reflux condition.
428021 tn?1203672750 Other possibilities are costochondritis(an inflammation of the joints in your chest.),Fibromyalgia(a chronic musculoskeletal pain syndrome, characterized by diffuse musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance and tactile allodynia(pain even on touching) and arthritis(rheumatoid, Ankylosing spondylitis and Psoriatic arthritis). Pls apply warm compresses and some muscle relaxants on the chest and take some anti inflammatory pain relievers like ibuprofen.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have periodic chest pain with their fibromyalgia? I get it on the left side, higher than the heart, almost like a rib pain or something. I wondered if anyone else has this?
Avatar f tn I have HCV Genotype 4e for 40+ years, Cirrhosis, Hepatic Encephalopathy Portal Hypertension. I am in pain now almost 24/7 and the last 6 weeks it has become almost unbearable. I had my Gallbladder removed in 1997 and was diagnosed with HCV in 2005. Tried treatment but 5 weeks into it I had a stroke. My lab results showed AFP above norm mine is 9 and range should stop at 6. CT scan showed Portal hypertension but no tumors.
Avatar n tn Also to note, the re has been the sensation of a dull ache near the middle of my chest extending to my left ribcage on occasion when the pain in my right ribcage begins to hurt. I am not sure what this could be, and cannot go to see my doctor until I return home from law school in a month. I am otherwise healthy I think, as I have ahd blood tests done 3 months ago and everything was ok. Do you think this is something of concern? Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn Hi all, I have been having the same problem as most of you. I have been having pain in my right side under my ribs and in the upper right side of chest/breast area since april.Constant pain all day long. I even take Darvocet and this has not helped at all. This all started after having the iferior Vena Cava filter placed. They went through my neck to place it. I have had CT's done of my lungs to make sure I did not have a Blood clot in the lungs.
Avatar n tn I have been getting a pain in the upper left part of my ribs. Just below the breast. Its a pulsing pain and I can feel it coming on before it starts. It usually happens when I am bent over and do physical activities. I also have back pain. Esp in the upper back and neck area from tension and stress. I also know I strained my shoulder working out. I dont know if they are all related. But when I dont have the pain I have an ache in my back and from where I usually get the pain.
Avatar m tn I have been having frequent and constant pain in my abdomen, ribs, and my chest. I also wake up with a cough that I think might be related. When the pains first started, I went to the E.R. and I got a bunch of tests run including a chest x-ray and an EKG. I also had blood tests run to check for a high white blood cell count, as well as my liver function. I do not smoke, and I have started eating much healthier since this pain has started.
Avatar f tn For the past few days I have had this pain in my ribs on the right side just below my breast. It hurts when I take a deep breath, cough, or stretch and has woken me up from sleep more than once. I have no injuries that I know of, there is no bruise or mark of any kind, but it is a very sharp pain that is very uncomfortable and irritating.
Avatar f tn But if it hurts mostly when you breath in it could be inflammation in between the ribs. It is like pleuracy. I would see a doctor about it. Either way they will have to check you out. If it is inflammation in between the ribs then you may need an antibiotic for it. I have had this several times. Try a hot water bottle or heating pack on it and see if that helps. If it does that may be what you have.
1132657 tn?1260557669 There are days I can't even touch that area. Now I would think you would have pain in other areas if it is fibromyalgia. If you have not seen a rheumatolgist that might be another route to try. Adding more medication in my opinion and this is NOT a medical opinion only actual experience, can make your symptoms worse.
Avatar f tn He never mentioned Fibromyalgia to me. In fact, nobody has. So on my own I have scoured the internet and searched inner ear pain and fibro. I saw people have experienced this and I felt hopeful that I am not alone in this. I also at times feel like I get a flare up and feel like I have sores ( you cant see them) in my mouth, primarily right sided at the moment. Or a feeling of something caught in my throat. I feel like I am losing my mind and my life over this.
769745 tn?1345750012 Fibromyalgia Tender Points All fibromyalgia sufferers also feel pain in various tender points around their bodies.

Avatar f tn I have joint pain all over my body. Same sporadic pain that will be in my ankle and suddenly in my shoulder and then my hip. My doctors have labelled me with this and I'm not sure if this is what I have. Anyone's opinion would be greatly appreciated. Please help if you can.
1429415 tn?1308271820 I also have slight scoliosis, and basically unbearable pain from my ribs up including ribs, my arms, legs, shoulders, neck, even my fingers and toes hurt sometimes and feel numb and tingly. It seems to move from side to side of my body or hurts on both sides. I also have missing discs in my upper back. I take morphine, percocet, and soma but it seriously doesnt do much for me. I have a terrible time sleeping as well. I use heat and ice alot.
Avatar n tn But I just had a laparscopy but that was not it either, they had wrapped around the old gyn surgeries. after a week I have not pain in the lower half, but still have the other pain. It is like muscles twisting.
Avatar n tn Yesterday evening I started noticing a bruise type pain on my left side, it's under the breast bone, in the rib cage area. At first I didn't think anything of it but it kept gradually getting worse. It hurts when I don't touch it, like the pain you get when you touch a bruise and it burns. Now, today, the right side, in the SAME spot hurts.
Avatar f tn The pain some day is mainly just under my right shoulder blade and there is also a very sore spot in the middle of my back by my spine and my ribs are very very sore - all of this is on my right side. I also have a tender point just above my elbow. Hands and feet go numb and cold and I have Reynaulds which seems to be getting worse. Today and for the past few days I am stiff all over and have a real tightness around my rib cage. Some days I have a burning sensation all over.
Avatar f tn I was only out a week from work. FM did make any difference to me in the pain I felt or in how I healed.

Avatar f tn Hi, Since you have burning pain on the abdomen and as well as on the arms and hands, nerve pain is more likely . Consult a neurologist for evaluation. Regarding the increased gas and belching, have an endoscopy done and also test for H.pylori infection. Sometimes tolerance develops to PPI over a period of time. So you can discuss with your doctor regarding changing to another PPI.
