Pain under rib cage

I have been having mild pain under my right rib cage on right side.  I was diagnosed with IBS a long time ago, pain was much more severe.  I have not had that symtom for years.  Was I miss diagnosed?

Have you been under any additional stress lately? Have you been eating any differently? Do you have any other symptoms besides mild pain under right rib cage?

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
No, IBS can cause pain under right ribcage. However so can liver, gall bladder and pancreas problems. Duodenal ulcer too can cause pain under right ribcage. Hence get this diagnosed again by running tests to rule out these conditions.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
