Ive had three lumps on rib cage pain extreme fatigue headacjes. Ultra aound ok wbc high rbc low doc thinks herpes i dont?

Consider Shingles

Exhaustion
Shingles is a viral infection which follows the nerve tracts; it is usually limited to half of the body parts(does not cross the mid-line when located on the trunk. Lesions of Zoster are blistery in apearance when they first come on but can burst later and appear like small skin bumps. It is not difficult to diagnose as most doctors have seen many such cases. if not satisfied get 2 nd opinion.

I have three lumps in rib cage, headaches, stomach pain, night sweats, nausea and fatigue.

Systemic illness

Would strongly recommend that you see a doctor ASAP. If the night sweats are due to fever, tuberculosis is a good possibility, and tumors may produce similar symptoms and signs. You need a full detailed evaluation which will probably include imaging studies and possibly a biopsy of some of these lumps. Good luck

I have three medium size lumps on rib cage for six months painful when you touch them pain in stomach headachea fatigue my doc said herpes but i have?

Herpes simplex

Tactile
This does not sound like herpes, but without seeing the lesions it is impossible to diagnose. My advice would be to see another doctor and get a second opinion ASAP. Good luck.

I have 3 lumps on right rib cage fatigue doc doesnt know what they are now having extreme burning pain across stomach when sitting very tired?

Why lumps?

Gastroenterologist
You need to confirm if you have real lumps on your chest wall. This can be confirmed by a physical exam by a doctor and further checked with a Chest X-ray or, if need be, a CT scan of the chest. You may need a second medical opinion if the first doctor has not figured out what you have and what you need to do next.

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

Pulsing lump on rib cage below right breast, what could it be?

Aneurysms

Aneurysms that occur in arteries other than the aorta (and not in the brain) are called peripheral aneurysms. Common locations for peripheral aneurysms include the artery that runs down the back of the thigh behind the knee (the popliteal artery), the main artery in the groin (the femoral artery), and the main artery in the neck (the carotid artery). See your doctor ASAP.

Please get checked

by your doc. A lump can be serious and when treated properly can lower your anxiety. Ambiguity generates anxiety. Peace and good health.
