I had the same pain under my right ribs sporadically for several years. Recently it got very bad (felt like I was getting stabbed multiple times per day), doctors couldn't find anything other than slightly elevated ALT. It turned out to be liver inflammation from a chronic viral infection. Got over the infection about a month ago and I've had zero pain since.I’ve had this before, regardless of being on a cycle or not. Sometimes it’s a little lower than the lower rib cage area so could be something entirely different. I’ll be getting it checked out soon for sure.
Just curious if the liver can actually “feel pain”? And if something is wrong with it, wouldn’t there be other symptoms? Only other thing is when I do run an oral I get stomach bloat quickly regardless of diet...only reason that has me worried is my mom had non alcoholic induced chirrossis (can’t spell) and her stomach bloated up towards the end...
^This, what you are feeling is most likely an enlarged liver putting pressure on your ribcage.I can assure you that liver pain is not a myth. In the past I’ve had alcool problems and I was folllowed for my liver and I definitely had liver pain. The liver under stress will get larger and the pressure it puts on your rib cage is what’s causing that feeling/pain. When I do STRONG orals I’ll have random pain in that area from time to time and that pain will stop as SOON as I’ve stopped the compound.
That area gets very sore for me when my UC is active and is inflammation in the ascending and transverse colon.Oh **** I was thinking the liver sits way lower, like on the right side of the abdomen/gut area. Yeah my discomfort is far lower. Gallbladder perhaps?
Sheweww! Sorry for the freak out guys, my own stupidity! Thanks for the help, as always!
