Has anyone had unexplained random stomach pains not sure but not completely dull. Sometimes I feel like a light pain shoots across my stomach but it doesn't really hurt that much it's just kind of strange like something is wiggling around across my my upper abdomen above bellybutton. I'm also having some pain in my lower ribs on the left side and it'll move to my upper ribs in a mood to my side of my ribs and then a little bit in my back ribs it's also not very painful but I feel it there a lot of the time. Had a lot of blood work which all came back great going fine ultrasound soon I am 37 years old has anyone ever experienced this and not gotten any good answers

    Sounds like gas to me, do you eat well and on time? Have you been to a doctor? You should get checked.

    Hi it really does sound like trapped wind your large colon goes right round under your ribs in a loop so all the pain sounds like wind an ultra sound will tell if there's any inflammation of any of your organs liver gall bladder etc so hopefully that's all it is I have had unexplained pains fur 15 years now started at the same age as you are now and it's ibs I'm sure it's nothing to worry about but the doctor will know better

    Take care

    I have been doing the worst thing I can do and that is google my symptoms because as soon as you do that the worst possible outcome is your dying from pancreatic or liver cancer go to hospital. Why do we do this to our selves. It's making me crazy and scared to get the ultrasound. Everyone tells me to stop because I'm making myself worse. Ugh

      We all do it if it's liver cancer or pancriatic cancer you would first be yellow and in a lot of pain so I wouldnt think any thing like that it' sounds like wind trapped wind its maybe ibs as it usually starts in your 30 s I wouldnt worry about it as that will make you feel worse

      get the tests done and then take it from there in sure you will be fine

      Thanks Kevin I keep trying to tell myself that but you know how it is once we read something our minds wonder. That's why these groups are so very important to keep us level headed or we could go crazy with worry.

      Your doctor will keep you right
