So for the past couple months or so Ive been experiencing an uncomfortable swelling sensation under my right rub or right along the right rib. I panicked and thought "oh no it's my liver" or "oh no it's my gallbladder"(my appendix has been removed) . It comes and goes and I notice it more if I bend over to lean on something or if I'm sitting down kind of bent over. Today was feeling it and decided to push on it and it went away... Kinda. Now I feel it has move down my lower belly and to the side. I'm planning on going I and seeing my doctor but am truly puzzled and slightly concerned. It's never sharp shooting pains but an uncomfortable swelling sensation.

    Hi,

    I have this too. It sort of feels like stitch. I thought mine was a hernia. My Doctor said people don't get hernias under their rib cages. Do you strain when you have a bowel movement? That is where my swelling came from. I had strained my muscles, causing tender, throbbing and swelling.

    Do you get these symptoms after eating?   If you do, try a food diary to see if you have a food intolerance,  Have you eaten anything you would not normally eat?  Tests should show up the problem

    Did you find out what this was?   I have exact same symptom.

      I have the same thing. Something swelling occasionally under my right rib and really annoying when bent over or laying on my side. Sometimes it swells so much I can have difficulty breathing.

    I stopped drinking and eating all dairy products and it has almost disappeared.  Some chocolate and or peanut butter seems to agitate it still.    Also a facial  rash I had been getting is also clearing up.  All of this swelling  seemed to happen to me after being on some strong antibiotics? For other unrelated issues.
