Unhappy Re: lower rib pain

Yes I am experiencing the same thing. My left lower rib area is also swollen. I just had an endoscopy done that showed gastritis and a sliding hiatal hernia. I am uncomfortable most of the time. I hope I get this under control soon and get my life back. My rib area hurts when lying down,it also is bothered by my bra band.

Re: lower rib pain

I get the same pain, under the ribs and above or through the breast. I was dxed with costochrondrtis, inflamation of the rib cage. My Dr. recently said I have acid reflux from my symtons, have not had a EGD done as of yet. Now I am wondering what this pain is from. I have it almost everyday day sometimes both left and right sides.

Do you get sore spots in the pain areas with this. I do and also get sharp shooting pains that are really quick, but hurt. I also have fibromyalgia and the wonderful IBS.

I have posted on this board 4 times and have yet to receive one reply.

Re: lower rib pain

My pain is similar, but it doesn't shoot...it just hurts under the rib cage and then on the left above my heart and below my actual shoulder area. Scares you sometimes. Mine also goes into my back. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said that I have classic symptoms of GERD and wants to scope me, but can't until June. I just want to feel better. I have been on prevacid and it has been helping as well as I have been drinking DanActive everyday. The problem is that it helps until I have a day like today, I really am stressed and ate TacoBell...Man was that a stupid move on my part, I am suffereing like crazy because of my mistake....
Anyway, take care!!!

Re: lower rib pain

It is really uncomfortable at times. My bra band irritates it and if I slouch while at my desk. If I push on that area it feels sore. I recently had breast reduction (November 21,2006) and thought it may be a side effect of that. My Dr. is not sure of the cause. If it doesn't go away soon I'm going to get chest xrays done. I have had a CAT Scan and that didn't really show much. I had an endoscopy done and that showed a hiatal hernia and gastritis. I hope we all get the answers we are looking for real soon. This site has been very helpful !
