Im an 18 year old girl who's experiences regular bouts of pain for years now. I always thought it was just trpped wind cos when i fell asleep on the head pad when i woke up the pain would be gone. Then a few months ago the pains got worse and don't stop until i'm sick, i seen one doctor who told me it was an inflammation and gave me ibroprofen to ease it... despite the fact im asthmatic and was experiencing chest pains from it. Then last week i visited a new docotor.

She suggested this pain im suffering may be gall stones but i 'just dont fit the picture' im young and imnot fat. but the more i read about it the more it sounds so familiar. i always get a really sharp pain that feels like its tucked under my right rib and the same area around my back. im often sick and actually im sat here now typing in complete agony... im so fed up with this i couldnt help but cry today.

Im awaiting blood test results but for the meantime can anyone suggest anything that could ease the pain?? Thankyou..

  • You don't have to be fat to have a bad gallbladder and you could have adrenal problems. Lay on a heating pad till the doc gets some answers. Don't try to treat anything on your own til you know whats wrong.

Something else could be going on. could be adrenals, maybe you broke a cage. Lay on a heating pad and just wait for the doc to call you. I would not try to treat anything without the docs knowing. They know you don't feel good just wait. I'd take tylenol though not ibuprofen. Tylenol is the safest.
