You have not mentioned whether gallbladder was removed earlier.
If not this could be cholecystitis.
An ultrasound scan may be done to find the status of gallbladder.
Hello and thank you for the response.
The gall bladder was removed when I was around 23, I am late 30's now and was just comparing the type of pain which leaves you breathless and is hard to describe, I am up late tonight, scared to go to bed as I know what the pain will be like at 2am if I go too early. This pain came on suddenly around 6-8 weeks ago and at first was like pounding in the kidneys, now seems to be more to the right on waking and can barely roll over, it moves towards the hip area and is so so painful and is on both sides of the back below rib cage. My right ribs feel a little bruised.
I am normally a very fit person with no back trouble and this is scaring me somewhat.
Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
