Having recurrent pain in rib cage area after a walk. What could this be? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you?
Today morning I woke up and after brush, I went for a walk
After little normal walk, I felt pain at lower right rib cage(not sure whether it is from under rib) or from the side
The pain comes and goes
Till then I did not have any food
later I had oat meal and continued with my bath
Later I had food but the pain is coming and going
Does the pain increase when you breathe in?
No pain is not there when I breathe
Just like that it come sand goes
Later I came to office and I did not feel pain at that place
when you had the food, did it get relieved?
However on my right side I started having pain like sweet pain and at the back in the middle agian right side
Its again sweet pain
What I observed in the morning is I felt the pain when I slouch in sitting position
Does food relieve the pain?
1 week back, I have pain at the lower right rib cage but its above the rib cage
Not sure, I did not feel the pain later
How old are you?
what is your height and weight?
5.5 and 60
do you smoke?
or drink excessively?
No bad habits :)
gastric problem is there
In all probability XXXXXXX
Its due to the gastritis
I am not sure how effective Homeopathy is
2 to 3 weeks back abdomen scanning is done and everything came fine
It would be normal in gastritis
This is a condition where the lining of your stomach gets eroded
So what you need to do is this
Take small meals at regular intervals
Eat something every 2-3 hours
No excessive tea/coffee etc
I dont take tea/coffee
and whenever you do have the pain
take ENO 1 XXXXXXX in 1 glass of water
If you have the pain frequently
This drug is extremely effective
But since this is a prescription drug
You will need to see your physician for getting a prescription
HAving a cup of milk
Another point is, more than one year back, when I got my abdomen scanning done, I got a result that choleathisis without cholecystitis for gall blader
Avoiding pickle, chutney, papad,, etc
is also important
I showed the report to my doctor and he said it is a small and it may not be a gall stone also and unless there are any attack you should not be worrying
But in your age group
We will need to repeat a scan
and in any case
In recent abdomen scan, the report came that gallbladder retracted hence they could not say whether there is any issue
We have other tests to check for gall bladder function
Like a HIDA scan
But for these symptoms
all these tests are not required
How do I know whether pain is related to gallstone
We can never really know without repeating an ultrasound
But as I said, in the scanning done 2 weeks back it came as galbladder retracted
We will need to repeat the scan XXXXXXX
or do some other tests
Do you want me to repeat the scan again? Also, does the pain occur on empty stomach?
But why do we want to go there
if the pain gets relieved with antacids
its not Gall bladder pain
ans anyway for the gall bladder pain
the treatment is only removing the gall bladder
so for these mild symptoms
why go through the pain
Do you follow?
I will follow your suggestions and in case I have repeated pains I will contact agian
Is there anything else I can help you with
thats it thank you
Thanks for consulting me
