I am having excruciating, very accute, very sharp pain right now in my upper right abdominal quadrent, just beneath my rib. I VERY FREQUENTLY have discomfort there, but this is the second time that it's ever gotten this bad(the first time was about 9-10 mos. ago).

The first time it got this bad, it started VERY SUDDENLY. This time, I had that same discomfort that I get almost daily, and it grew increasingly more painful over the next 10-15 min. to the point that I'm now practicing my breathing techniques that I learned for childbirth. I mean, this hurts pretty significantly.

The last time, I went to the ER, and after about 6 hours, when they FINALLY came in to take me to have a gallbladder ultrasound, it stopped hurting, just as suddenly as it started, and the Dr. couldn't find anything unusual.

I hate to go sit in an ER for hours again, in excruciating pain, for them to tell me that they don't know, and send me home again, if it will eventually pass...but IT HURTS.

Anyone ever experienced anything like this before? or have any idea what it could be? Please, help!:(
