sharp pain under left breast/rib. gallstones?


Hi, ive been having a stingy like feeling under my left breast just at the top of my rib cage. Kinda feels like acid burning away inside me! I had it a while ago before i was pregnant and last night it kept me up. Someone suggested it could be gallstones, anyone had a similar experience? x

It cant be gall stones, your gall bladder is on the right hand side and the pain is right there on the right going from inside to your back.

I had gall stones that lead to an infection that put me hospital for a week and had to have my gall bladder out so I know this pain reallyyyyy well!

I agree with happigail...gallstone pain kind of starts in the middle of your ribcage then wraps round to your back on the RIGHT hand side. It is an horrendous pain and you wouldn't be posting on a forum if you had it!

Always best to ask the doc if it's troubling you though.

can i ask those who have had problems with gallstones a question please?

Does it feel like you have been winded (but with more pain)?

I was only winded once as a child so I cant remember how it feels, but the pain of gall stones and gall bladder infection is horrific. Its sharp and constant, you try to move yourself to a position where it wont hurt and you just cant, after the infection that put me in hospital I kept onto my gall bladder for a year and tried to manage it with diet, that REALLY didn't work. You will find the pain is significantly worse after eating as the gall try's to secret bile to break down the food but the stone get wedged in the hole OUCHHHHHHHHH.

If after eating the pain is worse I'd go to the doc xx

Is it worse when your sitting or standing?

I have been getting a burning type pain under my rib towards my right side. It's much worse when I sit down. My mw said that it's my stomach being squashed by uterus so it's actually my stomach acids that I can feel
