Hi guys, for the last 2 months when I walk I get a sharp stitch like pain under my right rib area.. I get this within 10 mins of walking without fail.. It's like some thing is aggravated when I walk and feels inflamed.. Doesn't hurt when I'm in the gym so not don't think it's muscle related.. I also have a constant dull ache around my right rib area and back.. Any ideas ? Thank you in advance

    It is the right area for gallbladder but with gb usually the pain is more related to after eating certain foods, as well as sometimes general tenderness. I have gallstones and do get under rib pains both sides, but with nausea and digestive troubles. The only to way to find out is by seeing yr dr for an examination and if they think it is gb or similar they usually send you for an ultrasound scan. Hope you soon have it sorted out.

      I just had surgery- my pre-op symptoms were a constant dull ache but more central than under the right rib cage.  I had difficulty with running or working out at the gym.  The CT scan and the Ultrasound, and elevated liver and pancreatic enzymes did indicate the gallbladder, and I had many, many gallstones.  Everyone's symptoms are different- so you really can't judge your symptoms with someone elses.  I never had right sided pain.  I also didn't notice any difference after fatty foods, spicy foods, or ANY foods... so I was blown away when they said it was Gallbladder!  GOOD LUCK!  To prepare for possible surgery later one, I would try to reduce your fat intake- most all packages give the info and it can be surprising!  Good Luck!

    Right area for GB problems.  Just that' sharp' wouldnt be the way I would've described my pain.  Severe at times yes.  Usually accompanied by a dull pain in right shoulder area,'over the ' shoulder area.

    Hey Chistian, yeah your symptoms sound like a case of gallstones... Honestly, if you have stones, you can almost always know it just by putting presure under your right right of the ribs. I don't think there is any actual concrete proof as to what causes the body to develop stones, but I know my family history has had their's removed. My older daughter whom was 22 when she had to have an emergency gb removeal. The pain under her ribs was so sharp, constant, would cause her to be bent over in pain, sometimes having to vomit. Nothing oher than strong pain killers would allieviate the pain. Temporari;y though. Now since her gb was removed, she has been to the ER twice in the past 3 years since it was removed, and same symptoms as before the surgery. The pain radiates to her back, sometimes taking a scolding hot shower to her back will help reduce the under the rib pain, but the attacks are almost constant now. Thankfully she has an appt. with her GI tomorrow. I pray to GOD that the doc will find the problem and treat it so that she can have some quality of life back again. Best wishes to you wih your gb issues. I will include you as well as all the others for answers and relife!!!....................PRAY OUT LOUD!!.... I know GOD does hear us.

      Thank you for replying my pain just seems to come after 15-20 mins off walking.. Then after a hour off walking the pain will dye down a little.. The pain is hard to describe its like something under my ribs becomes inflamed when I walk.. A lot of people say that gallbladder pain is very painful.. Mines just annoying.. Iv bin constipated for years and wasn't sure if I was suffering with ibs..

    I recommend checking with your doctor and get an ultrascan examination. If you have gallstone, it will show up in ultrascan.
