Is there something I can take for this pain on my right side(under the rib area , moves toward my sides)? I've tried Iberogast, buscopan, pepto bismol, Tylenol, I'm already on a PPI(dexilant) for gerd. I don't see my GI until November. My doctor says it could be IBS, an ulcer in my colon.. She says I should ask for a colonoscopy. If this is an IBS flareup when is it going to go away? What can I take for the pain? One day I'll have diarrhea, the next dAy I won't have any bowel movement, the next day could be solid.. But no matter what, the right side pain stays. I have to redo a test that I did for c diff because I did it incorrectly.

Has your doctor ever checked your gallbladder? Those are some of the symptoms? Hopefully your GI can help solve your problem. Sorry I have no ideas on what to take for pain. Have you tried heat packs?

I started having a this pain last year and had an ultrasound which showed my gallbladder was normal. I had an ultrasound again in March which shows my gallbladder is normal. My dr seems to think that because the ultrasound was normal, my gallbladder is fine. When I mentioned the HIDA scan she brushed it off. So I'm not sure why she doesn't think it's my gallbladder. Maybe theres symptoms I'm not experiencing? I don't eat fatty foods. I notice this pain after u eat anything.

I would suggest a hot water bottle wrapped in a tea towel to prevent burning, this will help relax any spasming that you have going on.

Also magnesium tablets are good for spasms. I would push your consultant for a HIDA test, only this test will tell you if your gallbladder is working or not.

Hope this helps

No the ER will not do a HIDA scan, you need to get this done through your gastroenterologist - if you tell him the enormous pain you are in, perhaps they can fit you in for a cancellation.

Hope you feel better soon
