Re: Pain In The Ribs

Topic Area: Reflux Esophagitis
I used to have a pain in the upper right hand quadrant of my chest after eating.  Now it has
become a constant pain in the muscle or tissue right by the Ribs just below the Xyphoid process.
My wife tends to think that it is just indigetion, but I think that it might be the indication
of a hernia of some sorts.




Dear Johnson,
Pain related to eating is unlikely to be the result of a hernia.  People with esophageal reflux will complain of
burning pains in the pit of the stomach and/or behind the breastbone.  Fatty liver is usually not associated with abdominal or chest pain.  
Recent reports have suggested that delayed gastric emptying can be associated with vague abdominal pains.
THis information is presented for educational purposes only.  Ask specific questions to your personal physician.

I also have severe pain in the ribs on the right hand side. My doctor had scheduled so many ultra-sounds and HIDA scans  and x-rays.
He found that is wasn't muscular. I had a gallbladder attack 2 years ago. They never took my gallbladder out and the pains are still there and just as severe.
I have no idea what else to try.
Please help.

Have pain just under my rib cage on right side.  Sometimes radiates out from under my breastbone, extending to my back.  Pain is intense.  Have had my diseased gall bladder removed.  Have taken antibiotics for ulcers.  Have taken Prilosec and Prevacid.  Going back for second EGD on 6/15.  Any ideas?  What about Hiatal Hernia?  Dr.'s seem to ignore my questions about that.
