I've been experiencing right side abdominal discomfort for about 6 months now. It's always in the same spot - my right side right under my rib cage so I'm convinced it's my gallbladder. About 5 months ago I was sitting on the couch and suddenly it felt as if I was being stabbed is the spot where the discomfort always was, so I'm convinced I passed a stone. It lasted about 20 minutes, then got better. It was tender for a few days but never intense pain after the first 20 minutes.
I've had 2 doctors do scans of my gallbladder and found no signs of gallstones. 1 of the doc's did say that my gallbladder looked a little inflamed, so he put me on antibiotics. Those seemed to help a little but didn't solve the issue. All blood tests have come back within normal levels as well. I've even had a CT scan done and they said that there were no stones and everything looks perfectly healthy.
Does this sounds like a gallbladder problem? There is never any pain (other than that 1 night) but it's more of an unpleasant discomfort. My doc is convinced I have an ulcer and wants to go looking for it, but I'd rather not do that if I don't have to. Thanks for the advice!
