I'm 15 and for about 3 years now ive been getting this sudden sharp pain in my right side just under my ribs. It's been getting more frequent over the past few years, yesterday i got it 3 times and the only way to get rid of it is by lying down flat on my back for a while. This is very inconvinient especially at school when i can't lie down so i have to sit there and take it till i get home. I'm getting quite concerned about it now, Iv'e never had any surgery except to have my tonsils removed but I'm sure its not related. Does anybody have any idea what it may be?

  • It could definately be your gall bladder. See a doctor and have that checked out.

  • Well I too am 15 yrs old and I get the same thing. It's called Precordial Catch Syndrome and doctor's say that it's just a pinched nerve, they also say that there's nothing to worry about it, but you can check up on this syndrome for yourself. Hope I've helped
