I have right sided pain that comes and goes... A couple of years ago I couldn't even ride my horse because it was so bad and I swore it was appendicitis or something like that. I had it for over 7 month straight, so my GI ordered a colonoscopy which came back normal, except for my Left sided U/C.... Then, one day, it just went away and stayed away for several months. Now I get it off and on, and I'm pretty sure it's IBS, because if I take a Bentyl, it get's much better... I find that stress aggravates it too and different foods I eat. You might want to try Bentyl and see if that helps..
Today I'm going to see my GI for heartburn that I just can't get rid of, even with taking Nexium every day.... I was here looking around and saw your post and wanted to chime in since it sounds exactly like what I was dealing with... my pain was right below my right rib, and I was so worried that it was my liver or gallbladder, but all my tests came back normal.
I'm pretty sure now that it is IBS and it is probably my colon in a constant spasm when I have this pain and boy o boy.... Bentyl sure helps it...
Good luck~ Susie
