Pain in my side

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi

For the past few months ive had attacks of bloating and intense back ache to the point that i can only sit with a hot water bottle to get any relief. It usually disappears on its own for a few weeks and I feel fine. The latest attack hasnt gone. The back ache isnt as bad but the worst pain or dull ache has settled into my upper right side from my ribs going down to my hip. When i stand or walk it starts to cramp then gets quite painful. Its not like my hip hurts its just feels deep inside my muscles. My tummy is pain free and my bowel movements are ok. Fed up now...ive been referred for physio but im not convinced its muscular...going back to my gp next week..any idea would be appreciated

    Hi Jane

    Right side beneath the ribs is the right lung, then the diaphragm muscle and next we come to the liver, pancreas, and gall bladder.

    Perhaps you are having gall bladder attacks...your symptoms fit, but please notice thay I do not have M.D. after my name.

    Try avoiding fatty foods, spicy foods, rich foods.

    kind regards

      Hi,

      Thankyou for the reply. I have altered my diet slighlty since this has all happened but i think i will limit or cut out the foods you have menrioned and see if it helps. Much appreciated 😊

      Hi

      If the modified diet helps, you still need to see your physician because an infected gall bladder is a nightmare to recover from. You also want to be aware of any gall stones you may have. If a gall stone were to become lodged in a duct...it would mean emergency surgery.

      Not all gall disease has gall stones.

      kind regards
