This is the second time this has happened to me. I have severe pain in what feels like my rib cage. I cant seem to get any relief from the pain. I am also vomiting due to this. Can you please tell me what is causing this and how i can stop the pain and stop it happening again.
You haven't mentioned which part of the rib cage was painful, or if the pain is located just below the one side of the rib cage.
Also, it is important to known if there were some additional symptoms.
If the pain was very sudden and severe, located under the left rib cage, radiating to the back, lasting for days, accompanied with nausea, vomiting, rapid heart beat, sweating, could be a pain due to pancreatitis.
if the pain is in ceter of the rib cage then it must be a gastroesophageal reflux and you must take some antacid as there is also a vomitting
otherwise it can also be a simple myalgia and diclofenac sodium will work for it but i suggest u to get ur endoscopy done if there is pain in cage and vomitting
same problem....starts with a deep "hot" feeling under my ribs and spreads up, down and to my back. not like acid hot, it's different. like a hot air bubble is caught or like my insides have all been pushed upward. i feel like i need to reach inside under my ribs and pull something down. i try deep breathing...sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't. can last 20 minutes. about the time i feel like i need to call 911, it subsides. lay in bed and roll back and forth, stretching my back then curling my body up. i try to get up and walk, that only makes it worse. it only happens like 2x a year, but very painful. had gallbladder removed in 93. had an endoscopy that showed nothing. drs tell me it doesn't happen often enough to do anything about. i've been dealing with it off and on tonight for about 1hr. it usually comes on, then subsides and i'm done for months, but tonight it has come and gone 3 times already. had to get my husband to beat on my back. very frustrating. can't find a connection with foods that have been eating that may cause it. it has happened morning, noon or middle of the night...not always at the same time of day.
