Gastritis or gallbladder?

Posted , 3 users are following.

i have gastritis but im getting symptoms that seem to be different than the symptoms of gastritis ive had the beginning of may i started having non stop belching then couple weeks ago i had pain at the bottom of the sternum when taking a deep breath which was relieved by a burp. Then i started having sharp pain right under the right breast, the ribs were sore to touch.

The sharp pain then migrated up into the sternum and i was getting sharp painful spasms that lasted only a second. I was given omeprazole and sucralfate but im not really noticing much improvement besides the spasms stopping. I have pain that goes into the sternum even when laying down. And i hear gurgling and growling mostly when laying down too. The reason i thought it was gallbladder issues was because of the pain under the breast, which went through to the back.

    The pain your feeling under under your rib cage is probably diaphragm pain due to the inflammation of the esophagus.

    I feel your pain..

    Hope you can get it resolved

    Pain under the rib cage which radiates to the back sounds like gastritis.

      ive had gastritis for almost 2 years now and my current symptoms are not the same as the ones prior to diagnosis of gastritis. Im not used to pain traveling up into where the breast bone is, im guessing the esophagus.

      Pain can migrate and change over time. This is the area where gastritis can cause discomfort.
