Gallbladder: Location suggest like you may have gallbladder disease. This is something that it is important for you to discuss with your physician as soon as possible. You're also taking birth control pills and sometimes this can be associated with blood clots. However the fact it hurts when you push would make me suspect gallbladder first. You also mentioned bleeding and there could be a relationship between these as well. You needed to see your physician for this issue ...Read more

I have a sharp pain in my stomach. It feels as if someone is kicking me in my ribs and its difficult to breath. What is it?

Hurt to breathe?: Does it hurt to breathe? This would suggest pleurisy (also called "the devil's grip"). If the pain is also in your back and associated with nausea, you could have a kidney stone. That can sometimes also get worse with a breath. If it's just hurting in the tummy, you have gastroenteritis - food-born or viral. The exact location of your pain would be helpful. ...Read more

Sharp pain in lower right side of abdomen when holding a deep breath especially if sitting mildly slouched, gp said IBS due to bloating. Not appendix?

Sharp pain in lower right side of abdomen when holding a deep breath especially if sitting mildly slouched, gp said IBS due to bloating. Not appendix?

Unlikely: How are your bowels? Look for fever and nausea for appendicitis. For gas bubble (relative constipation) look to see if your diet is full of fiber and minerals, exercise daily and drink water. A localised leaking cyst on your ovary (happens every month) can make this a passing problem. Always see your doctor for a proper exam, if not better after a few days. ...Read more

GERD: Acid reflux, or GERD, is a very common cause of symptoms similar to those you're describing. If your symptoms have been persistent, you probably need to see a doctor for treatment. In the meantime, try an antacid such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or Mylanta, to see if it gives you temporary relief.

Not necessarily: Your symptoms do not fit into the expected mold of asthma. However, to make sure, you should get tested. Talk to your physician and give a good history of your symptoms, your family history of asthma (if any) and when, where and why you get your symptoms. A simple spirometry test will also be in order to rule out any other possibilities. Get tested as soon as you can. Good luck. ...Read more
