my mom has been suffering sharp pains just below the ribs on the left side. Also, shes been having headaches on the left side of her brain (i know that sounds weird, but i hope u know what i mean). the headaches began as a dull pressure, but now its been growing worse and it is been keeping her awake at night, and shes had many sleepless nights. shes gone to the local hospital, and had a CT scan around herupper abdomen, but they found nothing wrong. they didnt bother with the fact she has been having headaches and they just recommended painkillers for her. but after the pain killers wore off, her pains still came. the doctors believe it isnt a very big matter, but the pain is now getting a little worse. To add to that, her back is starting to ache too. I'm worried for her. If anyone knows how to rid the pain permanantly or what is wrong with my mom, please, please, please tell me!!! Thank you!!:D

claidi-baa-baa :p ;) ;)

  • Sometimes the pain in the head comes from the back of the neck. Did she fall and may have a cracked rib along with pain in the back of her neck from the fall or an accident? Has she ever had a car accident and got whiplash?, Even if this happened years ago, she could be getting the pain now. The way she lays in bed have a lot to do with the pain. When the head hurts from the neck, it could take a few days for the pain to go away. She should see a neurologist to get proper diagnosis and proper pain meds. I suffer from migraines and head pain from my neck. I know what she is going thru. Good luck,;)
