Pulled Muscle? abdomen pain

I'm 29 years old and I know i'm not pregnant, but I have been getting a stabbing pain on my right side of abdomen below rib cage which last a couple of seconds but is getting more frequent over quite a few months. Also afther I had a bad cough, I developed a chronic pain in my chest below right breast and thought I broke a rib, but was told it is just a pulled muscle, this happened a few months ago, but the pain keeps coming back. I'm going for an ultra sound on friday for the abdomen pain, but failed to mention the chest pain. Could these be related? I really dont know hat this is.

And I dont suffer constipation and bloating etc either, and the stabbing pain just comes on what ever the situation, just woken up, walking.sitting, standing, there are no triggers.

Hello,

There are many possibilities to your symptoms.Upper right abdominal pain can be caused by biliary colic, cholecystitis(inflammation of gall bladder), irritable bowel syndrome, hepatitis(inflammation of the liver), kidney stones, pneumonia, musculoskeletal pain,lower rib fracture and malignancy.Irritation of the nerves supplying this area can also cause pain.Irritation can be due to nerve compression or pinching due to any spine related pathology.

Infemales,ovarian cysts can also cause pain in abdomen usually in lower part but it can be a referred pain in upper abdomen also.So ovarian cysts also have to be ruled out.
Confirmation can be done only after ultrasound or CT abdomen.Blood tests may also be required in some cases.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi,

Thank you for your advice, I can ask about these with the doctor for possible cause's.

I've had a Liver function test a few months ago and came back normal, so I rule out Hepatitis. My friend suffers IBS and it is triggered by food and I believe I dont suffer that either (as there is no known trigger that sets the pain off).
