Please help me!
The past couple of weeks, there's been time when the bottom of my ribs on the right hand side are sore. It's a pretty small area too that's actually sore, it almost feels like something is pushing against it inside my body. I've been having lots of gas at night, burping too. I've been really nauseated at night too, and it's making it difficult to sleep at night. Does anyone know what it might be?
Also, for about the past 2 years and a half years I had been getting mild/moderate upper right quadrant pain mostly at night. It hurt more when I breathed in. (it's really weird symptoms I know!!) In the past month or so, it's subsiding somewhat, and I've been gettin those pains kinda rarely. I was constipated really badly for about 5 years at least, but also for the past month I've been going a bit more regulary, at least 4 times a week which is great for me. My stools are not normal though, ranging in color from pale yellow, green and brown. As far as the pains I had been having my doctor thinks it could be gas pains getting trapped. I really don't feel like that's what it was, I just hope it doesn't come back. I was ordered ultrasound a few times on my gallbladder, but the hospital wants me to put down money on it, but I don't have it. I don't have any insurance at all, I'm really not sure what to do.
Both my mother & grandmother both passed away from gallbladder/liver cancer (one cancer spread to the other, not sure where it start at). My moms sister had her gallbladder removed due to gallstones. This family history worries me, and me having all these symptoms related in that same area worries me even more!!
If anyone has even advice or insight please let me know, I'm really starting to worry about it! Thanks.
