Re: had pain under right ribcage for over a year

Sounds like gallbladder problems. Is it worse if you eat a fatty meal, cheese, etc? If so, go see your doctor and ask about an ultrasound.

Re: had pain under right ribcage for over a year

The Duodenum lies under the bottom of the right rib cage and in my case of severe gastritis, I also had duodenitis which causes pain in this area.

Duodenitis is inflammation of the duodenum and is treated in the same way as gastritis, although it can take a very long time to properly heal.

If you have/had gastritis or if you are a heavy drinker then this may be your problem.

All the best.

Birch, what kind of symptoms did you have with the duodenitis?

Sisty, I was treated with PPI's. The gastritis took three or four months to go and the pain under the right ribs has taken about a year to subside.

Re: had pain under right ribcage for over a year

I have had this same type of pain and thought it was gull bladder. Have had xray, cat scan, heidi scan, upper endoscopy and all check out okay. Dr suggested going to muscleskeletol specialist. I have not done this yet. This pain has went on for well over a year. Usually bothers me the most when riding in the car for long periods. Could weight gain have anything to do with this? I drink very little.
