Pain under right rib cage. History of anxiety. What this could be?

My 22-year-old daughter has been complaining for several days of an ache just under the bottom of her right rib cage. It does not seem to be associated with any particular food or activity. It is bothersome. She has dealt with anxiety in the past but has had none currently. She eats sporadically and tends to have a very reactive GI system. Lots of foods bother her. Any thoughts on what this could be?

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your daughter is having her symptoms due to increased acidity in her stomach.

She can be given an antacid like omeprazole 40 mg once day before meals along with Domperidone 10 mg.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Do not miss a meal.
3. Avoid mental/emotional stress.
4. Drink lots of pure water daily.
5. never self-medicate, especially with painkillers and steroids.

I hope this is helpful to you.
