Charlie-Horse like cramps in upper R rib area
I had my gallbladder removed almost 8 yrs. ago after I had my youngest and have had Charlie-Horse like cramps under my right rib cage on and off since.  Last night the pains were excruciating.  What can be causing this?  I am a 49 yr. old female.

I have adhesions (scar tissue) from gallbladder surgery, pain pretty much 24/7 under my right rib, I'm seeing a pain management clinic for muscular/skeletal, I've had trigger point injections, physical therapy for abdominal muscle damage, cause and effect from the surgery.  I am a 49 yr old female, I had my gallbladder removed 9 yrs. ago, and with that I got IBS w/ severe diarrhea (pain and fatigue, alot of acid).   I take Questran (generic Cholestrymine) 1 tsp. w/ water at bed (One package can be to binding and constipate.),  It binds bile and stops my diarrhea.  If I don't take this at bedtime.  The next morning, no matter what I put in my mouth I will have diarrhea.  IAlso, try Protonix for acid.  I cannot eat gassy fruits or vegies, citrus or acidic foods, no fried or fatty foods, no dairy, no alcohol, caffiene, garlic, onions.  I eat low sugar, low fat meals - oatmeals, fiber one bars, fruit & nut bars, lean quisine meals, applesauce, activia yogurt. No real people food.
The Questran is a miracle for me.  I've just been put on Symax an antispasm med for your digestion. I also have dyspepsia (difficulty digesting). I live w/ pain everyday due to digestion and adhesions and it disrupts my life and family.
Good luck, I wish you all well.
