no, never of those, but the pain does get worse pressing on it.
It feels like i would imagine broken ribs would feel like
any trauma over the area?
the pain is mid ribs to lower back on right side
how severe is the pain?
any other medical problem?
thanks for the information
I can't lie down and sitting is difficult for more than a minute or two
this pain do need an urgent evaluation and you need to see the doctor right away.Possibilities could include a musculoskeletal pain,neuropathic pain or a pleuritic pain.Sometime even an inflammed gallbladder or liver can give such pain so see the doctor right away
it is so intense! I can't have a bra or camy or anything around me.
is gallbladder or liver that high?
what is pleuritic pain?
usually it is in right upper abdomen but can be felt behind the right lower ribs
pleuritic pain is due to inflamation of pleura which is a lining mebrane around the lungs
it's waist high and up and around
you said's it is under the ribs??
anything i can do now--until i can go to a doctor? what kind of doctor would i see?
if a grab my rib cage and push below and on it, it's on fire
first as i said will be to visit the doctor in ER for an initial evaluation and immediate management then depending on the initial assessment the doctor can send you to the appropriate speciality
what are gall bladder symptoms? my sister had her's removed
mainly pain upper abdomen,fever,nausea or vomitig in acute setting
hmmm none of those. I'll go to the ER, thank you.
you are welcome
