I WAS IN PAIN FOR A YEAR AND A HALF. I WANTED TO DIE I HURT SO BAD. IT FELT LIKE I WAS HAVING A HEART ATTACK AT TIMES. THE DOCTOR PUT ME ON RANTIDINE AND A MUSCLE RELAXER WHICH I TAKE AT NIGHT. MY WHOLE LIFE IN REGARDS TO THAT SPECIFIC PAIN HAS CHANGED. THEY ALSO SELL PRILOSEC OVER THE COUNTER NOW FOR ACID REFLUX. MY PAIN WAS EXACTLY LIKE YOURS IS. CONSTANT, BELOW, AS IN BEHIND MY RIBS. I FEEL FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK!

  • I have had rib pain that changes from left to right side and from back to front. It feels like someone is squezzing me really tight and just generally aches. The family doctor thinks it is stress, but unfortunately that is the "diagnosis" for anything that he us unsure about. I don't smoke, do not have a cough or a fever. I do have naseau from time to time.Any ideas on what this could be?

  • Hi,For anyone who is having rib pain, please please please, have your Doctorcheck your gallbladder and do liver enzyme testing along with autoimmune testing as well. I have had rib pain for over 2 year it took over a year to be diagnosed with autoimmine liver disease with cirrhosis. I was diagnosed with everything from cancer, lupus, and being a nut case don't give up if you do not like what the Doctor says always get a second or even a third opionion go to a reputable Doctor who you know other people trust. Any University Doctor is an excellent start. Good Luck and God Bless!

  • Gall bladder, Gall bladder, Gall bladder. I too had a "normal" scan with no gall stones showing and after suffering for another year a wise ER doctor figured out it was indeed the gall bladder and had "the very diseased organ" removed immediately. This almost killed me.Hope this helps in some way

  • I had the same type of rib and chest pain where it hurts everyday in a different place and feels like im being squeezed. The doctors did tests and found gall stones. I did a natrual flush which got rid of the gall stones but not the chest pain. I also have type one diabetes and i used to have Hyperthyroidism (which was also fixed through natural theropy) I urge everyone who has a thyroid problem not to let them take it out or used radioactive theropy on you. It can be fixed natrually and the other options are very dangerous. Especially because the thyroid is the master gland of the body.I only just turned 20 and the doctors are continually shock at the different things wrong with me becasuse im healthy, dont smoke or drink and im still alive and smilling when i should be, aparently, exausted and depresses. I have only had diabetes for almost 3years and it is going very well with the help of natural theropy and a healthy diet. I should be off insulen again very soon. :DIf anyone has any clue to the chest pain i would love to talk with you. It has been going on for over 7years and im really egar for a explanition.

I've been in horrible pain in my ribs around my liver and I have cirrhosis as well, but my team of doctors won't consider the possibility. It's been six months with no answers. Thanks.
