Have they checked your gallbladder and appendix? Your young so they may have overlooked it. Are you having any nausea? If you had broken ribs you would without a doubt know it. I believe gallbladder problems are hard to diagnose sometimes. It took my cousin months before they discovered her problem. When they took her gallbladder out is was enlarged and inflamed. Even though her test were negative. Pain is a indicator that something is wrong. Keep looking for another Dr. until you get one that can help.In the mean time stay away from fatty foods.Good luck.
Hi have they done bloods for a full liver profile.
This is a large internal organ which sits under the right rib cage also.
Have they done an ultrasound of the gallbladder, to check for gallstones?
Hope this helps, and maybe you can ask your doctor to send you for an ultrasound and do the bloodtests.
It is possible that you are experiencing inflammation of your gallbladder or even gallstones. You should see your doctor and ask for a gallbladder ultrasound. If it is very low right pain, you should have your appendix or ovary checked, although Im not sure that they cause pain in your rib cage. I recommend a gallbladder ultrasound and if you end up back in the ER before you see your family doctor, insist on this test because they can do it at the hospital. Im really surprised they didnt do this test the last time you were there. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
I am referring to my cousin who had a similar problem as BreatheHopeinMe. But the answer is yes. They did a full Blood profile, ultrasound and they did a test where they IV drip a medication to make the gallbladder think it's had a full fatty meal. She had a total hysterectomy years earlier. Her only symptoms were pain in the upper rt. abdomen just below the ribs that radiated to her rt. shoulder and nausea. Especially after a fatty meal. She finally found a surgeon who could tell by palpitating the area that it was inflamed. There were no stones, just inflammation and just starting to become infected. He said it should have been removed months earlier. She is well now but tries to eat low fat diet.
An ESR blood test is a indicator of inflammation in the body/
Gall bladder illness, usually the pain goes in the shoulder, scapula pain.
I would say if its bothering then go back to the ER because its sounds like they havent done enough to find out the cause.
Well, I don't get nausous, it just seems to contiune aching which is causing me to live off of Advil like it's candy.
I'm going in to a doctor to have them look at my gallbladder, I hope that's what it is or that they can find the cause fast.
I am glad your going to the Dr.. All those Advil can't be good for your stomach. Be persistent.
Keep us posted. :-)
Of course, thank you for the help everybody. I hope they can find the cause, it's really uncomfortable to walk like a hunch back because standing is to painful on you're collar bone.
