Chest & stomach pain tenderness under right rib, pain in right back at bottom of rib, platelets 438, AST 127, ALT 33 normal u/s.No gallbladder/spleen?

Chest & stomach pain tenderness under right rib, pain in right back at bottom of rib, platelets 438, AST 127, ALT 33 normal u/s.No gallbladder/spleen?

Not sure: That I fully understand the question. Is it normal ultrasound? What do you mean "no gallbladder/spleen"? Blood tests seem normal. Need full medical history & physical exam. Many things cause pains that are not the gallbladder. Pancreatitis, gastritis, stomach ulcer, constipation, muscles, back injury with radiating nerve pain, etc. Ask your doctor for a referral to a specialist if needed.

Stabbing pain under ribs, diahrea, fatigue, flank pain, stomach pain, blood in urine and fowl smelling urine? Going to ER what answer can I prepare for?

Pyelonephritis: Sounds like a serious kidney infection. If the pain is not constant but colicky, you may have a kidney stone too. The ER will check urine and blood tests and likely a CT scan.

Stomach pains, back and rib pain just ovulated excessive burping?

Stomach pains, back and rib pain just ovulated excessive burping?

As a first: Line I would reduce stomach acid with generic prilosec, zantac (ranitidine) or both. If this helps discomfort, reflux at play. It could be more than one thing but the burping points to reflux. Get that out of the way, you see more clearly the other issues.

The bottom of my stomach where my pelvic area is, is bloated. At first I thought that but it hasn't gone down since april 3rd my sides are firm, and I had a horrible lower back and stomach pain yesterday?

Abdominal pain: Hi Lisa913 I am assuming there are no urinary symptoms, and assuming the "stomach" pain refers to the lower abdominal pelvic pain. This could be 2 things.Constipation. Please use stool softener or bulking agent (Metamucil) or pelvic congestion mid cycle (Advil (ibuprofen) helps) Chronic abdominal pain = RT doctor visit thanks

Stomach pain under lower left rib that runs straight through to my back, why?

Hard to say..: Abdominal pain like what you have described can be caused by a number of factors, including ulcers and kidney stones. Can't guess about these things over the internet. You will need to see your local physician for an exam, consultation, and proper diagnosis.

Why do I get stomach pain and a bloated feeling after I eat or drink anything? Healthy 42 yr old female

Bloating: Bloating can be caused by indigestion, reflux symptoms (gerd), intolerance to certain foods, or can represent constipation. Pain in the right upper quadrant can represent gallstones, but generalized pain is unlikely to represent that. Antacids such as tums, (calcium carbonate) or medicine to decrease stomach acid such as Prilosec (over the counter), may be helpful. If you had worsening or new symptoms, vomiting, fever, then it would be reasonable to consult your physician.

Feeling gasy and bloated everyday in the stomach, is there anyway to get rid of it? As many time I would also have a stomach pain with it too?

Feeling gasy and bloated everyday in the stomach, is there anyway to get rid of it? As many time I would also have a stomach pain with it too?

Reason 4 gassiness?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut.
