Hi,some of you may think that this is a trivial problem compared to alot of the other problems posted, but i have been having a tugging pain in my right side, right below my last rib for the last 2 weeks. the pain could be musculoskeletal, i'm not sure. went to 2 doctors: 1 said that it could be gall stones, but another doctor disputed it and said maybe ovarian cyst. Had blood taken for cbc and biochem, all ok except for a mild increase in neutrophils.Have done a pelvic ultrasound: whole reproductive tract normal but need to make another appointment to do an abdominal ultrasound. Am frustrated cause the ultrasonographer couldnt move his transducer a few cms across my abdomen to see if he could find anything out of the ordinary in the region of this annoying nagging pain. Before I spend another $200 to do this 2nd ultrasound, am wondering if anyone would have any suggestions or comments. There has been no nausea involved, no diarrhoea, no other symptoms. just a dull ache on my R side. Sometimes I wonder if it is like a stitch that just doesnt want to go away...
