You need an scan of the body and brain, you are crazy to have these. do not peep into the problems and try to analyse them. gallbladder is for stones. it comes out with stones my grannny had them removed last week. it is nothing to do with your rib cage problem. I guess you are maniac.

for no apparent reason (ie) food,drink,ect. My abdomen to just below the ribcage will bloat-become tender to touch and then the abdomen will bloat. that part is not painful---just the upper ab. I I don t eat spicy foods or drink alcohol. What could be going on?

When i was young i was diagnosed with what is called pigeons chest. In the past couple of days Ive felt discomfort where my ribs overlap right in the center i think that s called the sternum, Ive recently been working out is this due to my recent muscle build up? the pain is felt when ever my abdominal or chest muscles contract, some times i feel a little snap?

I have a sharp pain in my right side below my rib cage and above my hip bone. The pain can get so severe that I can barely stand and cannot find a comfortable position to lay down. The severe pain last for about 20 minutes but then begins to subside. Laying on a heating pad helps relieve the pain but it is never completely gone. Could this be a kidney stone?
