About a week ago I woke to a pain on my left side under the ribs, I thought I'd slept awkwardly but the pain didn't go as it usually would. The pain is like a stitch/pulled muscle/gas sort of pain but with sharp stabbing pains also.
I ended up in A&E and was admitted whilst they ran tests. I tested positive for the protein that clots release but a vq scan ruled a clot out. I had orotein/blood in my urine but doctors said this is normal in a woman of my age (34). An ecg and chest xray both came back clear. I was then discharged and told it could be muscular skeletal.
It's about a week since the onset of pain and it does feel less painful when turning in bed etc but I still have this pain under my left rib. If you have ever been pregnant, it's the feeling of baby with its foot in your rib. It's still twinging to my back. I have also got random sharp pains in my stomach and it feels a bit bruised. Bowel movements are softer than usual but not diarrhoea as in I have to go urgently and extremely regularly.
In general been feeling under the weather for weeks. Had dental work and infrction 5 or 6 weeks ago and have had numerous doses if antibiotics prescribed; could this be a link? I have eaten live yogurt to avoid thrush. I am aware of gassy noises/feelings in my gut.
Any help is appreciated.

Hi I know this is an old forum, just wanted to chat her up and see what your update is? I am also Petrified of the worse. I have pain on my left side and it's really annoying.
I just finished taking a mild antibiotic, for a uti, not sure if this would cause this. Just very nervous. Tomorrow going for ultrasound and sonogram.
Hey! What did you find out? I took cipro for a uti and now have terrible pain in back (left side) under rib cage....I'm worried.
So i think im in the same boat here.
Left upper abdominal pain under ribs.
Pain can be worse from laying or sitting. The pain radiates round my back to. My left shoulder always hurts to. I have had chronic pains for months now. Also been having hot flushes for about 8months im 26.
Feels like it burns sometimes to.
I suffer with acid problems and ibs.
Im aware i have a diastasis recti with two weakness. Some of the pain is due to a large muscle knot that keeps forming.
How are you getting on?
Back pains too 😔😑
Sorry you are having trouble. Hope you get some answers.
They found nothing but I can tell you that I now tell doctors I can't take anything in the cipro family. That really did a number on me
You will be fine
Stick to probiotics
Hi, I wondered if you had any outcome? I have the same symptoms that you describe. Upper left below rib pain, pain in left shoulder and back. I also suffer acid problems and IBS. Where my pain is I also sometimes feel like it’s pulsating. I have had lots of bloods done, ECG, x-ray, mammogram, ultrasound, CT scan all have come back normal. Was in A&E on Sunday evening due to severe pain and needed morphine to get pain under control. Doctors have given me no thoughts about what is causing my pain. I’d be interested to know of any outcome you have had and how you are doing?
. They could just tell me what its not, and not what it is.
