Why?

I'm getting allllllot pain in my stomach ( lower part) 

and for the lat (espicially yesterday) had pain all day just below my breast's by my ribs.......the pain came in random shoots lasting about a minute but all day it was their.

i tried many things to help with the uncomfortable pain mostly with a hot water bottle on my complete stomach for hours? Is it part of the premenapause? 

Is this normal infact I have had this now on and off for months...each time it comes back the pain seems to be much worse

infact the pain is sort of like pain I had when I was younger with my periods befor I was due to come on a few day prior I would get horrendous cramp pains that bad I had to goto bed to try and sleep the pain off?

has anyone else encountered this happening to them? Or heard off this as a peri symptom?

all I can say was the pain I had yesterday was awful/ like I had been stabbed espicially the pain below my breast bone......NO it wasn't acid reflux I do suffer with this and on medication..I took tablets BUT it didn't do anything pain was there all day? Anyone please?. Thankyou in regards.x

    Hi Shelley....is the pain towards the right side of your stomach? Do you have shoulder tip pain? Had you eaten any fatty foods prior to the exacerbation of pain? Im thinking along the lines of your gallbladder and gallstones???

    Shelly, while I can't tell you why it occurred,  I can tell you I had the exact same thing. Mine was horrible, very similiar to a spasm.  On my left side directly under my breast. It was horrible.

    Yes Shelly, I get pain ALMOST everywhere, the breast bone and the breast and yes stabbing pain too.  I also dont know about you but pain meds do very little as far as tylenol, ect. I am ready for the stronger stuff.

      Hi Shelly

      i had my gallbladder removed a year ago having had only two episodes of unrelieved pain......my suspicion of having gallstones confirmed by scan. Removed by keyhole surgery, daycase, relatively pain free procedure and quick recovery. Good luck.

      Hi Debbie and Jerry,

      many thanks for both your reply's.

      how may I ask.....

      with the pain you both went through..how was it diagnosed? Having gallstones? What will the doctor be looking for?

      what I'm asking is how is it raconised? Is it a long procedure? Of actually getting diagnosed and then finically getting removed?

      Hi Shelley

      initial diagnosis involves doc taking a history of the pain, signs tend to be classic. Suspicions of gallbaldder problems are confirmed by ultrasound scan. In most people, the pain is caused by gallstones moving....the body trying to expel them. So antacids and generic analgesics wont help. Often, the only solution is surgery to remove either the stones or the gallbladder. Honestly, I could not belive how straight forward my op was......I woke up smiling and aside for a bit of discomfort and tiredness, I recovered quickly. Hope this helps.

    Hi Shelly. Is the pain under your right hand side of rib cage. 

    I have had gallstones now for the best part of 12 years. I will be 50 in April the pain is triggered by what u eat. Eggs, cream,cheese spicy foods and salt sometimes. The pain can also go to between your shoulder blade and can last for hours and there is no pain relief for it. 

    Good luck.
