I am at my wits end

i have pain under my right rib about and inch below. Now and again it really flares up and moves along to the left near the stomach and just under the sternum. Its not related to food consumption, however the doc has put me on omeprazole to reduce acid in the stomach and it seems to have helped slightly, but it has not fully gone. i still have the same pain.

ive been tested for general bloods, celiac, hepatitis, variety of bugs in stool samples, had an ultra sound, h pylori. All have come back clear.

Does anyone else suffer the same or similar, it driving me insane. i am so down, i just dont know what to do with myself!!

  • I had some liver issues that caused exactly that kind if pain... Lecithin fixed me up... Triple strength if you can find it. You need to take several every day. Once I found the Lecithin was helping, I switched to polyunsaturated lecithin (PPC), brand names "PhosChol" and "HepatoPro", or Essentiale Forte or Lipostabil/oral if you are in Europe. I only need on a day of PPC.It takes about a month before you notice it's working but it really helped me. Very good for you too... No side effects. Hope this helps.
