Biliary colic: You may have gall bladder disease, i.e. Stones. A frequent symptom is being awakened at night with RUQ pain and radiation around o the back, caused by a stone rolling into the neck of the gall bladder and obstructing the cystic duct.

Gastroenterologist: I would start with a visit with a Gastroenterologist. This sounds like a functional bowel problem and a GI visit would do you the most good.

Reasons for abdominal pain that happens everywhere? Both sides of lower abdomen and under rib cage and center? Very scared got periods&neg urine tests

See professionals...: The described information is not sufficient to draw a conclusion. Now, watch and record the quality and quantity of all symptoms as well as the sequence of events, and watch what you eat. Then go to see, ask, talk and work with professionals timely. It's not good idea to guess online. Meanwhile, healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence and obsession will benefit living a long happy life. Best...

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.

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.

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!

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.

Pain under rib cage, Vomited twice in two days, lightheaded, can't walk/stand for long time, on the right side only, difficulty breathing?

Get examined ASAP: Your symptoms are concerning. You should see a physician or go to ER or urgent care asap. You may have an abdominal condition such as inflammation of the gall bladder or a pulmonary problem such as pulmonary embolism (blood clot)...or any one of several other conditions. No one can diagnose your condition without examining you...and that includes you. Don't try to self diagnosis...it won't help.
