Good point, that is where you would expect to have Gallbladder pain. The gall bladder, which sits just below the rib cage to the right of the stomach, is very tender to touch with an attack. It can be so painful that it takes your breath away. Take care and keep us posted.
I had that same pain when I was first diagnosed. It was directly under my right sided rib cage. They did a full work up for gallbladder, ultrasounds, etc...It ended up being crohns disease in the TI as seen from the colonoscopy. I was diagnosed in August and am still working on getting in remission. The sharp pain on the right side has gone away but now it is just the diarrhea, mucus and gas issues that need addressing. I hope you get rid of your pain soon. Feel better.
