I too have this pain in right side. I feels like I've been running. It's also been called a stitch too. I've been quickly diagnosed twice, over the past 3 weeks. Mainly because, I also have a pain in my right hip/leg joint that travels to my butt cheek. Literally a pain in my butt. I was even given a pelvic exam! I do think they are separate issues now.
FYI: I've had IBS for years & GERD. My IBS is only triggered by stress for sure & I've had plenty of stress over the past 6 months. So, i can't deny the IBS. So, it's not surprising to me now, that it feels like my intenstines are sore on my side. But I am wondering if it could be a gallbladder flareup from what I'm hearing at HealingWell? I was a bit nauseas last night after icecream.
As for my GERD (acid reflux), I was on 2 Nexium a day for over a year. I had been gagging, choking in my sleep, belching embarressly, (then 2 esophigeal monometries later, which i will never do again), a Funny thing happened... it got resolved about 7 years ago, by accident, while on a 6 week makeover program. Things all changed by eating smaller portions of MEALS, more often. I felt great! No more heartburn became a side effect! I Lost 12 lbs/2 sizes. I'm 55, and still average weight.
Since I've been aware of the eating thing now, I always notice how most people really do over eat, or just don't eat the right way. I still stay away from green peppers!!! Also, onions & garlic whenever possible. Well, I guess it's time to call a chiro & have the GB tested. Darn, just when I'm hopefully starting a new job too!
Any input will be gladly accepted. any questions I'll try to answer, unless I'm loosing my GB soon!
Thanks for this site. I don't feel so all alone now.
