Re: Excruiating right sided/flank pain
Aliba, hello. My name is Angelzgurl, and I have similar pains in my left and right flanks, around my ribs and straight to the zyphoid area of my chest, and sometimes the pain is so severe that it goes through my chest area (under breasts sometimes too), and right to my back! They come on sometimes suddenly, for no reason at all. Sometimes they come on slowly, like a charlie-horse, starting in one of my flanks. But the worst of them all is when I am just doing nothing really, when suddenly I take the next breath, and POW! I can't finish that next breath! The pain in my chest is so intense that I call them "heart attacks". I don't think that's what they really are...at least I pray that they are not! I honestly believe them to be some sort of panic, or anxiety attacks. Look into that possibility! Good luck!
