Upper left pain near rib cage

Common Questions and Answers about Upper left pain near rib cage


Avatar f tn Hi, I recently had my CT scan completed. Results came back in the normal range. The doctor also did blood work to check for liver and pancreas enzymes; normal too. Today I played basketball for a couple of minutes; I have terrible pain near left rib cage now. It's pulsating and burning as we speak. It's so bad it is radiating to my shoulder. Recently, I had a cousin, who is 50, be diagnosed with stomach cancer. He too had pains for years, look where he is now.
Avatar f tn I am experiencing upper rib cage pain...feels like a baby is kicking my rib cage (no I'm not having a baby either). I have had my gall bladder removed already (so it's not that). It started a week ago. What is going on? What can I do? Thank you.
Avatar n tn In 2003 I was diagnosed with GERD and having been taking Protonix for it ever since. I also had my gallbladder removed the same year for stones. In the past month I started to experience a pressure/bloating type pain in my upper abdominal area, just below the rib cage that came & went. It kind of felt like a band being squeezed. Then with no warning, I woke up one weekend to a stabbing pain in the upper left side, just under the rib cage. I have been suffering with it ever since.
Avatar f tn Upper right side, near the rib cage? I recommend seeing your doctor. It could be your gall bladder or liver. As for ovulating, I think there are tests on the market for that now. Didn't have those back in my day :-) Please don't ignore the pain. Get it checked. Take care.
Avatar f tn I noticed that if i move suddenly fast or bending in whatever direction it triggers the movement/pain in the left rib cage and i can really feel a movement of something with a severe pain and had to deal with it by myself (if am alone) taking minutes to figure out or wait until the bump will move back to its place.

415098 tn?1214856836 Is it your upper rib cage or lower rib cage area? Just the front or in the back as well?
Avatar m tn At random points through out the day the sharp pain comes on and off on my left side of chest right near my rib cage and also on and off the same pain in between my belly button and sternum. I do suffer from chronic heartburn and indigestion. Any idea what this could be?
1363698 tn?1277816271 For a couple days now I have experienced some pain in my lower chest area around the right side near the bottom of my rib cage and am experiencing dizziness as well. It started in my mid back and then yesterday (6/28/10) I was at a restaurant eating ice cream after my meal and all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in my right side like someone stabbed me. It then stretched across my whole lower chest area above my stomach and then went back to the right side. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn The thing that is weird is brushing up against my right side near rib cage will trigger the shock/cramp sharp pain mentioned above so wearing a shirt can be painful. There is no pain in my right rib cage My doctor is dumbfounded as he says there are no nerves connecting the right side rib cage area to the inner thigh. No swelling or redness. Sometimes I get a tingle/crawling sensation in my upper left part of my back in shoulder blade as well but it happens randomly.
Avatar f tn I have pain in my left upper abdomen and ended up in the ER on Thursday. They did a CT scan and blood work. The CT showed nothing and the bloodwork only showed an elevated white blood cell count. They refered me back to my GI doctor. I met with him on Friday and he did an upper and lower endoscopy/colonoscopy yesterday. Both of these showed nothing but I am waiting for the biopsies to come back to rule out Crohns and other diseases which I am sure will be negative.
Avatar n tn Gall bladder disease symptoms are steady gnawing pain in the upper right abdomen near the rib cage, which can be severe and can radiate to the upper back. Reflux disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, H pylori infection are few other causes of your symptoms. Few patients with biliary colic may have pain behind the breast bone, nausea, vomiting etc. Ultrasound or other imaging techniques can usually detect gallstones.
Avatar n tn He has severe pain in his upper left side, under rib cage – particularly after eating. He has had 2 colonoscopies, upper and lower GI with contrast, and an ultra sound. Doctor has been treating him for Crohn's, but NONE of the medications are working. He has tried Sulfasalazine, Asocol, Imuriad, Lealda, etc. ALL of them cause him to have SEVERE LEG CRAMPS unless he drink ridiculous amounts of water. He has had the traditional rounds of prednisone and antibiotics, but to no avail.
Avatar n tn Aside GI issues pain around the right side near the rib cage could also occur secondary to causes related to the chest wall such as inflammation, pleuritis, causes related to the respiratory tract, neuromuscular causes, referred pain from other regions etc. It would be best to have this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn I am experience some deep, sharp nagging pain right below (almost up under) the left side of my rib cage. I am also experiencing the same pain in my upper left shoulder. It's difficult to take deep breaths. I have read some things about the spleen injury or appendix, but I am also menstruating and am wondering if that could have something to do with it? Any insight or help is grateful appreciated.
Avatar f tn I am having pain/tightness/tingling in my left upper chest,arm and left rib cage. I have been to ER few times and Cardiologist. Heart and lungs trashed fine. I am a nervous wreck and don't know what else to do.
Avatar m tn if u look at NUMBER 7 (RIB CAGE) that is where the pain is located however in the left rib cage but on the right outside area
Avatar f tn I've been experiencing pains under my left breast, where the rib cage ends for a few days and it's starting to worry me. It's like a crampy sort of pain that occurs usually after eating, and it goes slightly to the side. It's nowhere near my heart so I'm sure it's not that. I've also been eating less.
Avatar m tn Several days ago I was just laying in bed working on my laptop and all of a sudden I got a very sharp pain under my lower right side rib cage (not my rib cage itself but just behind the lower side of my right rib cage.) and at the same time a sharp pain in the upper backside of my right forearm (not my shoulder or anywhere near my upper arm) about 4 inches from my right wrist.
Avatar f tn Ongoing Rib cage pain. I had heard that a lack of magnesium can cause rib cage pain due to being on proton pump inhibitors for longer than the recommended 8 weeks. Inhibitors such as protonix, nexium, H2 blockers, etc. I had just posted , i was getting some relief from going to P.T.
Avatar f tn The pain I'm having is on my left and right side of my abdomen. I feel pain at my rib cage also. my job requires heavy lifting, and it hurts to the point I can stand up for a long period of time. My back hurts, I have all kind of pain, just concern about what this could be.

I can't stand or go out somewhere for more than five mins with out my upper back right on my right rib cage start killing me. I just got a belly band from babies r us but I forgot to open it before I left today. Does this happen to anyone else?
Avatar f tn I have 37 days to go and I feel your pain. My son has been kicking my upper ribs so often that the nerves there now feel like a huge burning tearing feeling.
341551 tn?1266980730 What is the Cause of Pain right under your rib cage? What the heck could that be from?
Avatar f tn Last night while I was laying down on my left side, I started having a pain in my upper chest like around my rib cage. It slightly hurt to breathe. Should I be concerned or could it just have been the baby's foot or something stuck in my rib cage?
