For a few months now I've had these pains in both of my sides which hurt whenever I touch them. The pain is just below my ribs and feel it when I wake up. It can go throughout the day or last the whole day like it has now. I dont know how to describe the way it feels but it isn't really a sharp or achey pain. It making me very worried. Does anyone have any idea what this could be. Thanks.

    Hi John

    Mmmm ! pain under the ribcage, forgive me for being personal, however do you drink alcohol on a regular basis also how are your bowel movements?

      I never drink alcohol and bowel movements are usually ok but can be constipated a bit sometimes. I'm really starting to worry I have kidney failure or something.

      Hi John

      I 'm not a doctor, however it maybe a good idea to have your symptom's checked out as it may well be your kidney's as they are positioned either side.You said they are painful to touch, are you unable to be vertical without pain or are you doubled up in pain?

      Mmmm! Sharp pain may indicate trapped wind or a blockage, i know this may sound trivial,however it is excruciating as i suffer with blockage, try a laxative senna is a herbal one try to get the dual kind as it releases gas as well.Don't be embarassed we all need a little help sometimes.It may eleviate, what have you got to lose.See how you are after! Keep in touch.

      Susan I do drink for the last year I've been drinking on a close everyday basis. I know that I shouldn't, but I've been feeling these little pains as well. I just want too see what you would've said if this person was a heavy drinker. It's a old thread, but if you can respond that would be great.
