    Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

    I am 45 years old and a female. For over 7 years I have had an off and on dull pain on my left side. It mostly hurt when I moved. It felt like my ribs were hitting something and it hurt. It would last for a few weeks and disappear. It would flair up maybe once or twice a year. They couldn't find anything wrong with me. They did ulrasounds and bloodwork. Then last July the pain came back on both sides under my ribs. They did a CT and it was clear. THey did bloodwork and an ultrasound and they were clear as well.Now the pain is wrapped around to my back and sometimes it is a sharp pain. I can feel it on my sides too. It's like a big rubber band around my upper torso. It also feels like its swollen in that area, like it wants to come out of my body. I am tired, have Terry's nails (lightly) and Beau's Lines on both thumb nails and big toe nails. I do get gas often. I pass it both ways. I have had heart surgery when I was 10 to correct the pulmonary valve and I have Chiari Malformation which I have had to start taking pain meds for. The pain came before the meds though and I do not drink at all. I eat a healthy diet of good fats and good carbs with no sugar, except for occasional treats. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? I am so tired of going to the dr and not finding anything!!! TIA for any help or ideas. I have a call into the DR, again, so that I can see him soon. I was hoping to give him some suggestions! The only thing he seems to want to test is my stomach for ulcers.

    Re: Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

    I had horrendous gallbladder attacks and had it removed
    The worst of the pain was always under the right ribs going through to the back

    I would also feel a sort of bloated lesser discomfort on the left under ribs, that's where the stomach is
    I would often be sick too

    Ultrasound diagnosed a diseased gallbladder with thickened walls, no stones

    I recently had a bout of Gastritis and Duodenitis...which was a gnawing pain under the left ribs

    I would let your Doctor order tests for an ulcer
    And in case it is your gallbladder I wouldn't have any fat good or bad. I know little about a Hida scan for gallbladder trouble, but it seems it can tell how well it is working, so worth trying

    Hope you get a diagnosis soon
