Possible hernia: The most concerning/urgent possibility would be appendicitis, but that would not get better, but only get worse over a few days and you would have decreased appetite and fevers. An ovarian cyst is possible but usually hurt regardless of movement. The most likely possibility is a hernia or muscle strain in your lower abdominal muscles. ...Read more

The right side of my stomach hurts when I eat. What should I do? It is like a sharp stabbing pain. I usually end up deviled over crying

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.

Reasons to go to the er are:
- high fever
- bloody stool
- bright green or bloody vomit
- severe or worsening pain
- difficulty breathing. ...Read more

Sharp stabbing pain under left breast by abdomen when I lift something?

Probably muscular: If it's only with lifting, it's probably muscular. Many muscles are attached to the lower part of your chest, so that's a common place to have pain. Sometimes, the cartilage along your ribs also becomes irritated and hurts there.

I keep getting sharp stabbing pain left of stomach under ribs. Told allergic to milk. Told cheese and yogurt ok but no to milk. Is this ok? Why pain?

Not typical: Even severe food allergy does not cause stabbing pain under the ribs If you were told that you could eat yogurt and cheese, I suspect that your doctor thought you had lactose intolerance and not really milk allergy. Nonetheless, you need to talk to your doctor again or seek a 2nd opinion. Whatever it is, it is not from milk allergy. ...Read more
