On my right side I feel something moving below my rib cage and I am 59 years old.
Hello,Since how long?
In which part of the right side - front, back, side?
Can you feel any lump?
Any other symptom?
Any past illness? Any test? Any treatment taken? Regards
The feeling comes and goes for a few days then nothing for months. In the front there is no lump and when I try to lay down I feel nothing there. It feels like a part of a baby moving but no I'm not pregnant. No test taken. The only drug I take is for colestral(sp).
Thank you for the input.The common cause is movement of distended loops of intestine from gas. The other probables are distended gall bladder, cyst or a growth. It will need a consultation with doctor for examination and investigation like ultrasound or scans to get the precise diagnosis.Hope this information will help you. Wish you a healthy life. Any query, please ask. Regards
Is this something that I should worry about and why does it come and go?
As it is intermittent & comes & goes, it is likely to be a distended intestine from gas which should not be a serious concern. Still you should get an examination by your family doctor to be certain.
