Hi!
Reading through your posts to quincy, etc. this morning - sounds so much like when I had gall bladder attacks - that was before UC although I have IBS for years.  Under your shoulder blade (right side) going to back - usually after eating fatty food but can happen anytime - I got it mostly at night.  Indigestion is common and stomach pains right side up under ribs.  I had a ct scan and some other tests - they found stones and a BAD gall bladder.  I had it removed laproscopic surgery and home next day.  It was great. 
Hope you find what your problem is - just wanted you know my experience - and the backache was the WORST!!

Senior - New diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008
Tried all mesalamines and enemas, Canasa, etc.  Colonoscopy 10/28 showed only few cm. left to heal -hydrocortisone enemas 12 days - much worse.
2/3/2009 - sigmoidoscopy showed about 30 cm. involved but mild - starting on prednisone only 40 mg. taper on 2/7/2009.
 Feb. 21 - down to 20 mg. - no blood, no pain, no bad side effects so far.  Plan on adding 6MP (or?) at lowest possible prednisone dose.

Definitely a possibility....good call on that one Elaine! I had one gallbladder attack once, OMG..the pain took me to the hospital. It was obvious, however, that it wasn't muscle, etc.

Thanks Elaine and Quincy.
 
Mine is more on my left side.
 
Can't really say that anything triggers it and it is not agonizing pain. (yet) I don't feel different after eating.
 
It doesn't necessarily relate to any stomach pains I've been having. i.e. feeling the pain in the same general area front and back. Stomach issues seem to be lower around belly button, the back area is just right of my left shoulder blade.

still sounds like gas to me.....if you lay down and press following the colon from right to left and down....does anything gurgle/pop in there as you press?
For me, it does, which pretty much says gas.
But hopefully, the doc will at least do a hands on of your abdomen during your visit.

Keep us posted.
