Every morning for the past three months I have been waking up with a pain under my right rib cage, I don't know if it is gas, ulcer or IBS. And it seems to go away after I have a bowl movement or eat something. But the pain is there every morning. I have had endoscopies, and colonoscopies and I was told I have Barrett's esophagus a Hiatal hernia, IBS and diverticulitis. Could any of these be causing this pain or is just a gas pocket every morning ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This pain sometimes feels like a knife under my ribs.
it may be due to intercostal neurlogia also.
i have the same pain and thought the reason due to inflamed liver but my family doctor told me it is due to intercostal neurlogia. i have the same symptoms like you but do not know the reason. a lot of gas in my ypper right quadrand below liver.
