A couple of years ago I started getting a dull ache under my right rib occasionally. This has slowly, but progressively, got worse to the point where it became almost constant on some days. About six months ago I went to my doctor and they did blood/urine tests and took xrays and everything appeared normal.
They advised me to come back if things did not get any better. Up until October 07 the pain did not alter much coming and going, not extreme so you just live with it and carry on. I have noticed that since october until this week the symptoms had decreased and it seemed alot less frequent.
The period from october to now also coincided with me not training (gym or running 4/5 times a week) due to work. This week I started running again and the pain started whilst I was out running and was quite sore for a couple of days afterwards, the pain is in the area where you normally get a stitch but it is not sharp like a stitch.
I am also getting alot of gurgling in the same area especially just after eating.
I have tried to read up about it and everything seems to point towards gall bladder problem but I am not sure. Any advice please.
I am a 42 year old man, born in India, brought up in England and now living in Spain. I don't smoke and drink 2/3 glasses of wine a day. I did drink very heavily when I was a student and in my twenties. Still have the occasional heavy session but hardly touch spirits. I am not overweight and reasoanbly fit although I haven't trained for the last 3 months.
Sorry it was so long winded but I thought it best to provide all the info I could.
