I'm new to this forum, but not healingwell. I don't know why I haven't come here sooner.
Ok, this may seem weird and hard to understand so I'll explain this as best I can.
At the bottom of my rib cage, close to the middle but more off to the right I can feel something that feels like maybe a band of muscle or organ going from the middle of my rib cage off to my right side. It's kinda hard or firm feeling and sensitive to the touch. Sometimes I get bad pains in the area where I feel it. When I slouch I can feel it a lot more and can kinda get a hold of it. I don't really think it is my intestines, but can't really think of any other organ or thing it could be. Am I just being paranoid or is this something to cause major concern? Also in another post I mention I believe the right side of my abdomen sticks out more than my left and whole stomach sticks out and is 'fatter' than the rest of my body looking like I'm a couple months pregnant. I'm sure I have bloat and I can't really lie on my stomach because it is very uncomfortable. I have other symptoms, but I'm really curious/worried about the thing I feel in my abdomen. Any thoughts on what it could be?
I have an abdominal ultrasound tomorrow and will tell them to pay special attention to that spot and my right side. I am also waiting for results to see about ulcers, which in the past came back negative. First time they did a blood test to look for ulcers, this time I think they used urine.
P.S. I'm a 22 year old F
