I need some help cause I don't know what to do anymore. My symptoms started over a year ago. It all began with this feeling of something being stuck under my right rib cage. It was this dull feeling that wouldn't go away. I went to my GP and she ordered an ultrasound. Apparently my right kidney, liver and gallbladder looked fine, but she figured that I should get a HYDA scan to make sure my gallbladder was still working. I got it done and it said it was working at 62% which she said was ok. Right after that though, I began to get this new feeling around the middle of my upper abdomen two or three inches below my chest. It feels like heaviness or pressure, especially when I'm sitting or lying down. It's usually accompanied by the dull pain under my right rib. I was kinda massaging the area yesterday and I felt like there's some kind of growth that seems to be around one inch. It's not painful, but it feels weird, somewhat ticklish but not exactly. I can't really describe the sensation. This feeling of heaviness seems to be getting worse, but it is not accompanied by nausea, feeling of fullness or lack of appetite. It's just this weird pressure and it also feels somewhat tight as well. Anyone know what this could be? At the beginning of the year I went through a bunch of tests, a surgery, and countless visits to doctors including the gall bladder problem and did not get any answers to my problems, so before I go back yet again to get a bunch of tests that may not yield answers, I want to get y'alls opinion, so I can nudge my GP in the right direction. for reference I'm 32, female, not very active right now and weigh 165 lbs.
