What Causes Soreness In The Upper Rib Cage?
It just started today.
it can be muscle pain or rib injury
I have studied your case. You may have muscle injury or rib injury.Before I advised you anything I would like to know little detail of the illness.
1.Do you have any injury or fall?
2.Is this pain more with movement or coughing or sneezing ?
3.Do you have Diabetes or Thyroid or Smoking?
Please send me answers of these questions. I will try my best to help you.
1. No I did not have an injury or fall.
2. The pain is there all the time, but is worse with movement.
3. I have high blood sugar, but we are just watching it at this point.
I have been having a lot of migraine headaches and have been taking more Tramadol and Norco than usual.
It feels similar to when I would have gallbladder issues-but I had my gallbladder removed.
You may have liver problems
Thanks for replying. I think your pain can be due to liver problem. This can be due to following causes.
1.Gall bladder is removed so already you have compromise liver.
2.As you are taking Tramadol and narcotics which put loads on liver.
3.Your pain is similar to what you have in past.
So I have following suggestions.
1.You need to avoid fatty food in diet.
2.Check your liver function test and get ultrasound to see if you are not having enlarge liver.
3.If these tests are not normal then you need to see a physician as soon as possible.
