This is Dr. David

cramping and bloating under your right ribs can be due to inflammation of your gall bladder from gall stones or cholecystitis inflammation of the gall bladder

or could be due to swelling and inflammation of the distal part of your stomach, often from excessive stomach acid production

drinking alcohol, spicy foods, fatty meals, fried foods, tomato sauces, sodas can cause your stomach to produce more stomach acid and cause bloating and swelling of the stomach

food allergies to lactose or gluten can cause your bowels to cause more gas and bloating and swelling as well

Lantus injections don't tend to cause bowel swelling, but can cause weight gain over time

you might benefit from medications like GasX to help decrease gas and bloating

stomach acid reducers like maalox, mylanta, zantac, tagament could help decrease stomach acid

changing your diet and avoiding foods I mentioned above could help, eating small meals more frequently could help

keeping a food diary of what you eat and seeing what foods cause worse symptoms could help

you should see a doctor and see if you need an ultrasound of your gall bladder to check for inflammation.

do you have a doctor you can see?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
