It started 2 or more years ago. Pain all around my ribs. It would awaken me at 3 or 4 every morning. Presure on the ribs from laying on them was unbearable but upon rising the pain would subside. But recently it has gotten so bad I couldn't take a deep breath. X-ray and ultra-sound ruled out gall bladder and other things. I went to a health store and they gave me all natural anti-biotics and said, "We're going to hit this hard. Call in 5 days." In 2 days I was 50% better. In 5 days I was 95% better. Health store said, "I don't know what it was but it had to be an infection of some kind for these suppliments to be that affective." Now the pain is only on the right side under my breast and upper back right side. Friday night the pain was so bad I couldn't take a breath without crying out.
My Dr. is sending me to a surgeon on the 15th. He thinks it's my liver.:confused:
