Hello. Im a 25 year old male. I have a pain in my lower left rib cage. Both my primary doc and chriopractor have diagnoised me with floating rib. The pain comes and goes and can sometimes be worse than other. I get the pain after i eat. Some important things to keep note of is that i had a colon and endo done in march, came back normal. Blood work done in march, came back normal. I had a CT scan on my entire abdomen on saturday...all came back normal. What could cause the pain after i eat?
Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
I'm sorry to hear about this pain
Do you take any medication?
i take something for IBS
it starts with a "H"
hyspocean or something?
Okay, the pain in your stomach may be from IBS, or it may be from an ulcer
i didnt have an ulcer but i had my colonoscopy
this is happening in my rib
A colonoscopy cannot detect a gastric ulcer
It may be an ulcer, but it may also be due to IBS
just a question
im a very nervous person and was worried about some sort of cancer
thats why i had the CT
i thought something was wrong with my pancreas....did a little too much researching on the internet
Your pancreas is fine if the CT scan was normal
all my organs were fine
i know this is ridiculous, but a CT scan would definetely show something right?
Yes, it would
so this might just be from an ulcer?
i sometimes feel like nausea when i wake up
its only for 20 mins or so then goes away
why would that be?
It could be from IBS or an ulcer
You're quite welcome
