Night time upper right quadrant pain. Like a stich. Anyone else?

Posted , 3 users are following.


in short I've had pain under my right ribs in my upper right abdomen for a few months that only happens at night. I've seen 4 different doctors and none seem concerned to even send me for tests etc.

It often wakes me up and feels like a stich. Once I get up and walk around it goes and I am fully functional during the day. I often go for 10 mile runs and it has never got close to keeping me off work. Just can be a little tires at times due to lack of sleep.

I do get acid reflux, but gaviscon before bed (instructed by my doctor) sorts that out. I also try not to eat at night and eat a much better diet.

My weight is canstant, my stools are normal, energy levels fine.

I have given up smoking and smoked 5 cigarettes a day. My lungs are fine according to all the doctors and I can run with no issues despite having mild asthma.

It's just this stich pain under my tight ribs pretty much every night.

I recently had blood tests and all was fine,

I personally wonder if it's my gallstones, but all doctors think it's muscle related.

Just looking for some answers as it really doesn't help with the anxiety. Yes, I have health anxiety also.

      Hi Pippa, that it's not any of my organs! 3 doctors have done adoninal checks with hands etc and no pain at all or swellings. Just the pain at night.
