I have this one spot just below my left ribs about 3 inches left from the middle of my abdomen and about 4 inches above my belly button. It's been like this since the beginning of February, after I had my gall bladder removed.
I had mutiple CT scans and x-rays which showed up nothing.
It feels like it's in the muscle (right under my skin), but it's hard to tell. Sometimes my lower left ribs ache, but I find myself rubbing it constantly.
I had one doctor feel it and said it felt like a small tear in the muscle and fixing it might make me feel worse. My regular doctor told me he was wrong and that he wasn't sure what it was. He gave me some cream (Voltaren Gel) which does not work. He told me if it still felt the same in 2 weeks to come back and he'd give me a steroid shot.
No weight loss (I'm, actually, gaining weight), no loss of appetite, I do have a bit of acid reflux, but I always have had that.
I'm just curious if anyone else might no which direction to steer me in. I look at all the forums and none really match my problem.
I know this **** is driving me crazy. Nothing seems to really work at all.
