Hi, i am a 53 year old woman and have been suffering now for three years with the same very achy and painfull heavy feeling in my upper right quadrant. The last year being the worst. I have the ache pretty much all the time. Throughout the day it gets progressively worse. It becomes very sore and aggravated. Ive been to A+E a few times and they just say your bloods are OK and they send me home. When the pain is at it worst I belch and hiccup a lot. The pain goes into my back and all around my ribs. It almost feels like my upper body is too heavy for my ribs to cope with.
sometimes I get a lot of gurgling around the upper right quadrant. I have had many tests done starting with an MRI in early 2018 to look at my Thoracic nerves, this came back with normal wear and tear for my age. and later on in that year an endoscopy which also nothing came back with no problems showing . From there I've had ultrasounds on my gallbladder which did came back with a small amount of sludge but apparently not enough for them to be concerned about. I've also had a CT scan which they said came back normal. I go to the doctor and get no satisfaction, just a juggle around with tablets, which are gabapentin and amitriptyline, and continuous sick notes to say i cannot work, but she offers nothing towards identifying or resolving the problem. I'm sure I cannot be the only person with this mystery illness. This is really stopping me living a normal life. Can anybody help with suggestions.
