Front right rib pain and upper back pain
For about a week now i have been suffering with terrible pain under my right breast which seems to be coming from my rib cage and is now affecting my upper right back.
I have been sent up to A & E by my doctor and had a blood test and x-ray but all came up fine apart from the doc said i had extra calcium build up on my ribs.  She is baffled by my symptoms and isnt quite sure what is wrong she is thinking that i may have ripped the muscle from my ribs which is causing the pain. this just seems to be getting worse now with the back pain. I am taking my pain killers and as soon as they wear off i am in pain again.  I am getting so depressed at not being able to do much as i constantly get a sharp pain in my ribs when doing anything even walking.  She has said if no better by thurs then i should have some kind of scan.  Does anyone know what this could be or know of anyone who has had these kinds of symptoms??

I had similar symptoms recently and was told by my doc that is characteristic of gallbladder disease- they can do a Cat Scan, Ultrasound or HIDA scan to check this- ask your doc about it or ask to see a GI doctor.

yes she thought it may have been gall stones but has now ruled that out, the pain has now gone round to my back and front rib so im assuming it is more back related :o(
