Pain in my lower right rib

Posted , 5 users are following.

Pain under my lower right rib it even goes around to my back.  It first woke me up in the middle of the night under my front lower right rib was on FIRE it burnt so badly I wanted to cry it pain wrapped around my side to my back . I’ve had an ultrasound, ex ray, blood work and a Hida scan everything comes back normal the Hida scan says 55% . I am still having pain my right side is tender to touch and after I eat or drink the pain intensifies. Can anyone help or does anyone know what this could be?

    Has your doctor said anything about pancreatitis ? What were your lipase level on your blood work ? These could be symptoms of acute pancreatitis . Talk to your doctor about it . I have chronic pancreatitis and abdominal pain now . I had and still get the same thing .

    It could be gastritis.  It can be diagnosed on the basis of your symptoms or by endoscopy.  Try avoiding rich, greasy and fatty food and stick to a bland diet to see of that helps.  A food diary may also help to identify food triggers.

     Have the doctors checked out your gallbladder? I had similar symptoms before I had my gallbladder removed. It could also be gastritis which I had in January, or Pancreatitis.  Are you seeing a gastroenterologist? That would be the best specialist to diagnose this. Hope you feel better soon
