: I have a horrible pain right under my left rib cage. It had a sudden onset about three days ago and will not let up. It feels just like a side-ache one might get after a hard run. It is especially painful when I try to take a deep breathe or cough. Any ideas on what could be causing this?
Peggy, does the pain reach to the back, have you/are you a heavy drinker?
I 've had the kind of pain since the mid '70s. I've had x-rays, ultra sound done on the
gallbladder and kidney areas and found nothing. Just recently I had another ultra sound
done this time they checked the liver. Well anyway they found something on the liver.
Friday is my appt. with Doc. So maybe tell your Doc to have liver checked. And I wish
you the best. Peggy A
