Pain under rib
I have a recoccuring pain under the right rib cage going through to the back shoulder blade.I also get irregular spasams.I also have acid reflux burning.
I have had ultrasound,endoscopy and a colonoscopy and all that was found were two small polyps on my bowel. Gall bladder was clear. This has been going for over two years now and the symptoms haven't got worse, but they are still constant. I have been to numerous specialists and all they came up with was psioratic arthritis ( I also suffered from psiorasis on only two occasions ).
This is strange as the pain is not near any joints. I have also had my right knee and my right big toe swell up for no reason once only each over the past two years. I was first diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome in the beginning, but those symptoms disappeared in the first 6 months. The pain resembles a stitch like when you overtrain and become breathless. The reflux is also a major problem. Can anyone help me pleeeeaaaassseee.
