Upper right abdominal pain

Aug 13, 2015 7:48 PM

My pain started 7 years ago, and caused nausea and was horrible. My doctor dx me with sphincter of oddi dysfunction. I have had 3 surgeries and over the past 2 years it had eased up to tolerable.Then June 3rd it came back with a vengeance. I went back to my specialist at univ of michigan and she felt it wasn't the problem anymore and said it was IBS. I LOOKED up is and out of the 7 things that would not be in ibs, I had 5, ago not sure ibs is correct.

I have this boring pain just behind my right rib area, that gets worse after I eat and poo. I Also have nausea after I eat. Not all the things, so unsure what started it. Just really sick if feeling awful.

Chocolat, have you ever had hallo bladder problems? I had severe pain, nausea & vomiting on and off for years before there was enough evidence to get the insurance to let them do a laparoscopy. My gallbladder was on the edge of rupturing and was extremely diseases. I'll say a prayer for you. 🙏🌼

I had my gallbladder removed a few years before this started. It's very similar too gallbladder type pain

Sounds more like a gallbladder problem to me. I had the same kind of pain, ended up in the hospital 3 times in a year once for 6 days, once for 8 days and the last for 6 days. After the last hospital stay, I went to a gastro who sent me to the surgeon. He looked over all my tests and did another CT Scan and my gallbladder was full of stones!! Had the surgery and have not had any problem since. The other things that come to mind are hiatal hernia, intestinal infection, adhesions from scar tissue from your surgeries, pancreatitis or celiacs disease. I would go back to the specialist and have him run full blood workups and check your symptoms with the above conditions. OR, you look them up, see which you have the most symptoms for and then make your appointment. Take notes, write down questions and have yourself checked out. I wish you all the very best of luck and pray that you and your doctor find the answer to your problems. There may be others here that may have some other suggestions to help you better than myself. Good luck to you. 💕🙏🏻🌻
