I have a sharp pain in my stomach right under my ribs?

Guessing?: If it is on the right side and even in the middle, you could be experiencing gallbladder disease/stones. There could be gastritis or an ulcer. It could be a presentation of multiple other GI and non-gi issues. Sounds as though you need to be see and examined and perhaps have some testing done.

Pain in your abdomen: Hi that area you are describing is where your liver and gall bladder are. I would want to know if you have any other diseases, or are on any medication.

But the liver should never be ignored. ...Read more

Heartburn ?: Most likely this is acid reflux or heartburn but gallbladder disease could also be considered. Since lansoprazole helps it is more likely heartburn. Ulcer disease is also a consideration. You should see your doctor to sort this out. ...Read more

I have a feeling such as empy stomach, (up right between my ribs) and if I eat something I get a sharp pain in my chest area (more on the right side)+?

GERD?: Some things that come to mind include gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which can cause both pain on an empty stomach and chest pain after eating. Gall bladder problems can also cause right-sided abdominal and chest pain, especially after eating fatty meals. Heart problems do not usually cause "sharp" pain, but it still needs to be ruled out by your doctor. ...Read more
