Is mid back pain that stretches around the ribs to the front a sign of serious stomach problems? Dull achey throbbing pain

Yes,: Yes, that could be a sign of a serious problem. If it is in the flanks then there could be a kidney problem, such as a stone or infection. Gallbladder pain can also cause pain on the right abdomen/back. Also, if you have any rash, shingles can cause pain that goes from the front to the back. Please be medically evaluated.

Maybe (not). . .: Drinking to excess is never a good idea. But when someone complains of right lower quadrant pain, we always worry about appendicitis, especially if nausea/vomiting, fevers/sweats/chills, pain w/movement, pain that originally started around belly button. Check out http://goo. Gl/ZXUKR3 & http://goo. Gl/EiE7Nv. Then see your GP or go to A&E if symptoms worsen/progress. Read more

Real bad throbbing pain in lower right area of my stomach. What do you suggest docs?

Stomach or Abdomen?: If stomach, consider taking an antacid/drink some milk (one time just for a diagnosis. Don't drink milk for this on an on-going basis).
