Pain Just Below Right Rib Cage

Lately I have developed a pain on the right hand side of my rib cage, about 3 to 4 inches right of the centre and about 2 inches below the last rib cage. The position is constant. This pain has started after I developed some constipation--not to severe and persists even after the constipation has cleared. There is some burning sensation in the centre of the stomach though. No blood in stool, appetite OK.
Can anybody help please?

Re: Pain Just Below Right Rib Cage

Sandy I Have Doubts That It Is Anything Major To Worry About,but I Would See Your Doctor To Rule Out Everything. Its Possible You May Have Ibs. Lack Of Fiber In Your Diet Can Cause All Sorts Of Probs With The Digestive Track, Seeing Your Prob Started With Constipation. Extra Water In Your Diet Can Also Help Alot. Good Luck!!!

Re: Pain Just Below Right Rib Cage

Thanks Hyper1.
The constipation has cleared. So has the burning sensation in the stomach but there are occassional "Gas" related pain in the right side of the chest as well as towards the right shoulder. And that particular pain in the right side below the ribs remains. Seriously considering a doctor in the next couple of days.
