i was wondering if there is possibly a relationship between all these things.

-pain, like pressure under right lower ribs.
alternates with
-pain, like a burning sensation under right ribs but more central near to base of sternum
-ribs tender to touch

*blood tests done, nothing at all wrong with liver function, kidneys or anything else.

-random hiccups, which bring acid/food into the back of my throat but NO heartburn
-feel bloated and then i'll eat because i have to even though i feel 'off' and 10 -20 mins after eating i get hunger pains.

*another dr claimed that it was just 'hepatic flexure' which is wind in the corner of the large intestine under the rib cage.. but it doesn't move around like wind.
*prescribed Somac tablets. don't appear to make any difference. said i am probably just stressed. i am not stressed about anything....

*he also gave me a thing to get an ultrasound just "to prove that there is nothing wrong with my liver/gall bladder" but i cant get in for 4 or 5 weeks..

  • Maybe look into Igg testing. Delayed allergic responds. Also hyiatic hernia may fit.
