Pains in the "v" between my ribs and what helped

Hi, I just wanted to say that I was having some pretty severe pains in the "v" between my ribs (right at the bottom of my rib cage and sometimes in my right side, (though those were sharp craps). It wasn't cramping really it was just really painful and uncomfortable. Anyway, I have always been constipated but these pains sent me to the doctor after I was bent over in pain all day Easter Sunday. I thought it might be my Gall Bladder and told the doctor that I was having some of the symptoms but no diarreah or vomitting. She didn't think it was my Gall Bladder, rather just constipation. She prescribed Zelnorm. It's the commercial where all of the women are showing their bellys and they have writting all over them. It for Abdominal Pain, Constipation, and Bloating-of which I had all. Anyway, All of the above are gone. I have had constipation all of my life and didn't realize just how bloated I did feel all of the time. It is working wonders for me. Although, I started eating lots of beans (for fiber) and taking at least 2 tablespoons of Flax seed oil daily. I am sure that is helping also but whatever the combination--it's working. FYI

Re: Pains in the "v" between my ribs and what helped

Usually the pain you descibe is caused by a hiatal hernia and te pressure of a bloated stomach. At any rate I am glad that you're doing better.
Everyone needs both soluble and insoluble fiber for their intestines to function properly!!!
