Question: still pain but no diagnosis yet
|madcait - Tue Nov 15, 2005 11:27 am||
I am a 34 y/o F and have been experiencing lower right rib cage pain. Had a Hida scan and Gallbladder came back normal at 56% blood work also came back fine and liver and enzymes were normal. But I still have the pain and discomfort after eating and at night. It sometimes feels like I'm getting kicks like when I was pregnant and today the pain is like stabbing pain around my lower right rib. My Dr. wants to send me to a Gastro now. I usually have a day of constipation followed by a day of loose stools and lots of belching gas. Could it be ulcers?? or some other gastro problem?? muscle spasms causing the kicking feeling?? What other routes could there be??

i think a visit to make to the gastrology doctor will for sure help. you might be having symptoms of irritable bowel syndrom which are very common in females and between 20-40 years of age.
i hope you feel better.
