Hi Jenin,

It went ok though was in a right state when actually arrived for the scan :-/ as per usual nothing was found, apart from a large gall bladder stone which as he said is on the wrong side to the pain I'm having so he said best to leave that. He advised me to go back to doc as they said they might want to look at my bowels but again he kept saying to me you are way to young to have what I thought I might have (which I'm sure many of us jump to cancer all the time) :-/ so waiting to hear back from doc hopefully beginning of next week to see what else they think of or if it's back on the anxiety medication.

How are you doing?

Hello jenin I had the exact same thing you had last summer. I went to a GI specialist who gave me every test imaginable and found nothing. I was told to take a good pro biotic and start eating more fiber and it actually worked. They attributed it to irritable bowel which means they don't know what it is lol. Good luck hope you get the answers you need

This was my exact problem 2 years ago. Vague aching pain, sometimes sharp, on the right side of my ribcage.  I avoided going to the doc for 2 months but it didn't go away.  Finally made an appointment and he said he "wasn't impressed," but ordered an ultrasound anyway.  The ultrasound was clear, I started probiotics (have had IBS for decades) and it finally went away.  Just another weird thing with my body.  But I'll bet it's something digestive.  Things moving too quickly/slowly can cause pain.
