I'm 37 yrs old and I've been suffering with chronic upper right quadrant pain for over 2 yrs now. I've had various tests consisting of a 3ultrasound scans, 1 ct scan, endoscopy, chest xray and 3 routine blood tests. All have come back completely normal apart from a gallbladder polyp which showed up in my first ultrasound. The polyp is 6mm and no change was detected in my last ultrasound 8 months ago. My flare ups of pain have got steadily worse over the past two years and have become more frequent. During the past couple of months I've had pain just about every day. The pain has always been a dull ache under my right rib that is also felt in my back around the same area. More recently I've also felt pain higher up in my chest and around my right shoulder blade. I've visited my G.P who didn't seem too concerned about my symptoms and thinks my pain could be more psychological. I do eat a lot of fat and always have done but I'm a little under weight and always have been so I feel I need the calories. It's hard to pinpoint if food is a trigger because every meal I eat consists of some forms of fat. I'm feeling rather depressed about the pain now which has never been agonising but it's the duration of pain and not knowing the cause of it which gets me down. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone else?
