Anyone ever get right side pain as high as the 2nd rib?  I've been having a pain here for about a month, I originally had thought it was a pulled muscle, but after 4 weeks of the chronic pain, I'm starting to wonder...... Ideas anyone?  It does not hurt more after a meal or anything like that, it is more with movement.  I originally presented 9 years ago with LRQ pain I described as runners cramp, which was also painful with movement and not more so after meals....... Your input is apprecaited.  I would of course recommend to anyone else to go to the doc..... but its harder to convince myself =o)

Gall bladder? Yup, you know what you need to do. So, give up, bite the bullet and make that appointment. Good luck.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

When my insides are not doing well, I frequently get a bad pain in my right rib cage area. It can even be tender to the touch. I plan on bringing it up with my GI when I see him next. My gallbladder has been removed, so I know its not that. But the pain is really bad and radiates into my back. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. (((HUGS)))

When we have a condition like Crohns it's easy to attribute just about any pain or symptom in the abdomen and torso to it, but sometimes the cause may be something mundane which anyone can get. If your rib discomfort is aggravated by movement as you say, that sounds like a muscle-skeletal thing, which a lot of peolpe get -- simpl muscle pulls and strains between the ribs can take some weeks to heal because we can't really rest them, and they can be annoyingly uncomfortable. Cold be a lot of things, maybe Crohns related and maybe not, so you are doing the right thing to have it checked.

Jdiane just fyi I have been doing some research into Chostocondritis (sp?). I am sure in my case at least, that this is Crohns related. Because I only get this pain when the guts are in turmoil. JMHO

I had a pain in the same place a couple of weeks ago.  Couldn't hardly take a breath.  After 2 days I went to the ER thinking it was gallbladder problems.  All four of my sisters have had to have theirs removed so I thought it is just a matter of time.  After scans and a HIDA test no problems were found but the pain went away after another day or two.  GI is thinking that it was gas pain.  My thinking is that since my resection, my guts have been rearranged so much that it's a tight squeeze right there since that is where I used to get lots of gurgling sounds while my intestines were settling down.  Almost took a year to get over that surgery. 
 
Just my thoughts.  I hope that made sense.
