After the Doctor gave me Zoloft, I started having a lot of
pain in my right side. So much that I went to the emergency
room and they did a CAT scan to rule out apendix.
I went a few times for scans and they could never find anthing.
It seemed to be worse when I had a lot of gas.
The I read on the internet that a side effect of Zoloft
is ovary pain. After I stopped taking Zoloft all pain went away.
I didn't take it for over a year and no pain.
I started taking it recently and now I am having pain again.
I think Zoloft is not right for me even though I feel much
better mentally.

Hi there... you've gotten a lot of responses which is good cause gives you some possible direction and hope -- I hope..! :)

Do you still have the pain in the upper right rib cage area that never really goes away but is always there to varying degrees? Do you have any soreness when you press in that area? What you may have may be just lingering infection results cause once inner tissue becomes inflamed it can take quite a while to real - kinda like a bad bruise.

But just wanted to let you know - just in case it might help - I had intense to mild chronic pain in my right upper rib cage for years and went back and forth to doctors and to the ER and they took ultrasounds, etc. and always said - there's nothing wrong with your gallbladder whilst ruling out other things. I was confused and finally got to the point where I flat out told my PCP that this was NOT all in my head and I needed SOMETHING! done.. He referred me to the gastroenterologist who did a brief exam - pressed around my rib cage and abdomen and ordered a test called a HIDA SCAN... it often shows malfunction of the gallbladder whereas a ultrasound often misses that same malfunction. Ultrasounds are good at picking up gallstones but what if you don't have gallstones? Like me? I didn't have gallstones - I had a fairly uncommon (only 5% of folks have) gallbladder disease called ACALCULUS CHOLECYSTITIS- gallbladder disease without stones... and 2 weeks later I had my gallbladder out.... Doc said Pathology showed YEARS of CHRONIC INFLAMMATION AND PRECANCEROUS CELL MUTATION... Good things it came out when it did!

Just a thought...! If you do have continuing pain and ultrasound doesn't show anything on your gallbladder -- ask for a Hida Scan to be done (simple painless test)... It very possibly saved my life... By the way, I had laproscopic surgery and was mild and healed quickly and never knew these last few years I could feel so......... much better! Only Caution - make sure your surgeon is skilled in this kind of surgery ( if this would be what's going on ).... Either way... if you continue with right rib cage pain problems... it'd be worth the Hida Scan just to be sure..

Hope things are better for you.... GOd Bless... Hewie :wave:
