I've had this very sharp upper right abdominal pain for the last 6 years.
It has gotten worse over the years.
The doctors have ruled out gall stones...it has the same symptoms of galls stones or
gall bladder disease...Ultrasound turned up negative.
Here are my symptoms:
Constant Day & nite sharp upper right abdominal pain under my right rib cage.
Feels like gas trapped under my rib cage..feels like a spasm according to my doctors.
I went to emergency room once cuz it flared up so bad. Under my right rib cage
was hard as a rock..not sure what caused it. feels life threatening at times.
Especially eggs and caffeine will cause pain and anything with alot of fiber
will cause it to flare up w/ much pain. My doctors have not given me any meds
that helped the pain. Unable to eat regular amts of food. Small amt will fill me up.
Have gas at least once every 15 min and only gas X has helped a little bit in easing
my abdominal pain. My bowel movements are like thin stools. Beer seems to help the pain.
I've seen red colored & partially black colored stools a few times.
Does this sound like IBS to anyone, even tho the doctors ruled out stomach & liver cancer....not sure. At times I've taken Vicodin to ease the pain but it helps temporarily.
Any advice would help.
