I am 43 year old female, for the past 10 days or so I have been having pain on my right side under my rib cage that radiates to my shoulder blade area. I do not have any heartburn symptoms. It really doesnt matter what type of food I eat, it hurts all the time, I have seen my Dr. he thought it sounded like classic gallbaldder symptoms. I have had an ultra sound - everything seemed normal, I had a CT scan done (the barium drink is gross) and that seems to be normal too. I have to see him tomorrow, and I am really nervous. Any ideas?
The symptoms are suggestive of gall bladder involvement only.
I would suggest that you get a second opinion from a gastroenterologist.

I am 42 yr old female. I went to the doctor with a choking type feeling in my throat area. Tests showed thyroid o.k. Doc put me on nexium for reflux for 6 months. It didn't seem to make much of a difference. I have been going to a weight management doctor and thought all the suppliments and diet might be causing the problem. I started having pain under my ribcage in the liver area. Ultrasound showed liver and gallbladder were fine. I have had pain in the upper right quadrant, liver area. Sometimes it is sharp, other times it is dull. The day after I have this pain my stools are tan. I have nausea off and on that reminds me of that sick feeling you get when you are pregnant. I have problems eliminating. I went for an MRI to rule out any problems from my pelvis area - checked out fine. Abdominal Ultrasound checked out fine. I am going to ask to see a Gastro Doc next. Your symptoms sound somewhat similar to mine. Have you found a diagnosis yet?
