Have extreme pain in upper stomach under rib cage, vomiting and diarrhea, has been 12 hs, still vomiting and pain and diarrhea, what can do to relieve?

Hard to say: With vomiting and diarrhea it's important to stay hydrated. Additionally the source needs to be identified. Viral gastroenteritis or some food poisoning treatment is supportive care. However if there is another cause such as infectious (bacterial or parasitic) or inflammatory then there are other treatment options. I would recommend a visit to ER or urgent care.

Can a lipoma in your back cause pain that also feels like a fullness in your abdomen on the left under rib cage

Can a lipoma in your back cause pain that also feels like a fullness in your abdomen on the left under rib cage

Unlikely: Lipoma's are usually subcutaneous or in some cases intramuscular. However it would be very unlikely that an isolated lipoma on your back would be causing you these other symptoms. It's best to check it out with your primary.

See doctor: Without knowing more of your history, it's hard to explain your symptoms, but some type of gastric irritation could be the cause. This would include things like gastritis, ulcers, irritable colon, etc. A thorough evaluation can probably offer you relief. Good luck!

I'm 30. No alcohol. Pain in middle right side of abdomen, tucked under rib cage. When I bend into that side it feels like rib pokes tender area. Cause?

I'm 30. No alcohol. Pain in middle right side of abdomen, tucked under rib cage. When I bend into that side it feels like rib pokes tender area. Cause?

Get checked out: Right side of your abdomen under rib cage is where your liver and gall bladder live. A good doc can examine your liver to see if it's tender. A blood test can reveal irritation to the liver cells or gall bladder.
If organs are ok, Structurally, there can be dysfunction of the tissue/nerve/bone system in that area--an osteopath or PT or good yoga session might help.

Burning feeling under rib cage in my chest? Feels like it's at the beginning of my stomach or end of oesophagus? What could this be?

GERD: Sounds like gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Essentially the acidic gastric contents passing up into the distal esophagus due to an incompitent esophageal gastric junction. The distal esophagus has a different tissue lining than the stomach and can't tolerate the acidic reflux and this causes burning sensation.

Constant pain/burn upper left abdomen under rib cage for at least 6 months now with back/side pain and I will have cold sensation through my abdomen?

See a physician: The area you are mentioning and some of the things you are mentioning could be caused but an ulcer, especially with listing Ibuprofen as a common medication you take, which could cause an ulcer with chronic use. I recommend you see a physician to rule out any cardiac issues first, then rule out a gastric ulcer. Hold off on the Ibuprofen until after you see a physician.

Pain like cramp or stitch in stomach on left side just under rib cage. 1wk ago started after going long trips in van. Now occurs more. What's the cause?

Several causes: There could be several potential causes. It could be causes by a muscle strain, costochondritis, spleen, colon, kidney, stomach, or pulmonary. If you are feeling better, it may be more of a strain. If symptoms persist, see a MD. As you where on a long van ride, I would worry about a pulmonary embolism.If your symptoms are associated with any shortness of breath, I would consult your physician ASAP

11 months ago I had a baby and still feel my insides churning under rib cage; abdominal/ ovaries cramping, what could it be?

11 months ago I had a baby and still feel my insides churning under rib cage; abdominal/ ovaries cramping, what could it be?

Unclear: It's unclear to me what could still be causing you this churning feeling. If you had a cesarean, it could be scar tissue that's causing this feeling. Abdominal cramping could possibly be due to endometriosis or inflammation in the pelvis. Consider seeing a gynecologist and having a pelvic exam so as to try to ascertain the origin of this pain. Good luck!

Hello, I have a pain in left side of stomach and on the side under rib cage, pain starts after bowel movement,?

Hello, I have a pain in left side of stomach and on the side under rib cage, pain starts after bowel movement,?

Spasm: I am not sure of what all your symptoms are but most likely spasm. Of note this will happen more with stress or irritable bowel. It will also happen sometimes if there is days between bm or you are constipated. See your doctor if possible. And drink much water to make sure you are well hydrated. Best wishes.
