I have pains in upper abdomen right at top of rib cage, also back ache??

Epigastric pain

Upper_abdomen
This area can be the result of stomach issues like ulcer disease, possibly gallbladder issues or other upper abdomen diagnoses. See your primary doctor. He/she will want to know if the pain is related to eating (better or worse), if you significant amounts of alcohol or what the pain is.. Is it burning, sharp, does it migrate, how long has the discomfort been going on, etc. See your doctor!

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

Pain across upper abdomen, heavy burping and gas, bloating, pain shoulder blade, tender under right rib cage and had gall bladder removed year ago.

See you MD

Bladder
YOu need to get a complete history and physical, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging as well as possible endoscopy to evaluate the source of your distress. Perhaps dietary restrictions may be at fault but other more serious causes should be excluded first such as pancreatitis, malabsorption, hepatitis, and/tumors.

Pain

Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area and right upper quadrant of the abdomen. - Stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down - Pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back - Liver/Gallbladder - Hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant - Intestinal - duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area - Kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs. - Gyne - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant. And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on. So, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain. If your doctor is not sure what is causing your pain, you might benefit from speaking with a specialist. Reasons to go to the ER are: - high fever - bloody stool - bright green or bloody vomit - severe or worsening pain - difficulty breathing
