Does anyone with Gastritis feel Liver area pain?

Posted , 12 users are following.

Hi everyone. Hope you are well.

I was just wondering if there are any Gastritis sufferers who get the dull ache or pain in the right side under sternum area...Like tender to touch? Ive had Gastritis now for over a year and its crippling my life...I dont feel myself anymore as ive posted previously. But im worried that the Gastritis and this liver area pain and pain that radiates between ny ahoulder blades after a meal could be down to aomething more serious. Which then feeds my anxiety....and the cycle continues.

Ive altered my diet...tried smoothies and allsorts of pills with no let up :'( 

Thank you in advance. xx

    Hi Kay

    Yes, me. I didn’t really think that it would be related. I’ve had chronic Gastritis for a long time, and had a dull aching pain at the liver/ gall bladder area, upper right quadrant. I’ve had 2 ultrasounds on my gallbladder, everything’s fine, so I’m thinking it could be my liver, don’t know whether there is any connection with this pain and Gastritis.

      gatritis is different and  mild pain in right side under the ribs could be from fatty and inflammed liver

      could be seen in ultrsound

      this pain usually shows by changing position and contractions

      Will afatty liver show up with an ultrasound for the gallbladder?

      That didn’t show up on my ultrasound, if it’s not showing gall stones, or a fatty liver, could it be the pancreas?

      It can be gastritis as far up as top of back. If your stomach lining is inflamed you can still feel referred pain in the right rib. It's not just local pain in your stomach.

    Yes, I have it too, but in my case its short sharp pain. Doctor told me that it could be from duodenum inflammation or more likely - from fatty liver.

    omg yes! yes! and yes! this is me all over. ive jad liver pain in the past and ive had gastritis for a year now and i thpught it was my liver again so got bloods done liver seems ok. then because of that horrible pain that goes around the back to my right sholder blade i thought it was kidney stones but had a scan done and no stones. finally went to a dr and he told me gastritis. i was in shock. i really started to think i had some sort of cancerous growth happening as it really does feel like a ball in under my ribs on right side. and my anxiety is just getting worse but now i have found your comment i can finally relax a little. im so friking over this i have five children im 40 and i really just want to lay in bed with this condition i hate it so much.
