I have been having this pain in my abdomen a little under my rite rib for a long time now. I tried taking some vicodin for it a few times but it just seams to make it worse the next day. Pain is always worse in the morning and hurts to take deep breaths. I have started having pain in my ribs on both sides as well now, pain in my arms at times, and in between my shoulder blades. I feel like I am starting to fall apart. I have no insurance so the medical care i get is not very good, and I can't afford to run a lot of test to find out the problem. Sometimes I think I can even feel a not where the pain is in my stomach but I"m not really sure. I have been put on ativan for anxiety recently and have been taking seizure medication for years know.

Hi dexwar,

And welcome!! I'm sorry you're hurting so much, but you really do need to find the cause. Pain is the body's way of telling us that something is wrong. It may be gall bladder, muscle pain or something very serious but only a doc and some test will tell.

There is help for those without insurance in all states. Try calling your local health department. If you've done that then check into state sponsored insurance. I believe all states have it. You only pay what you can afford. If that's not working then call your local Red Cross. You don't have to be in a tornado to have them help you. They help with all kinds of needs, including medical. They can possibly get you insurance also.
