Burning pain in right rib and back?

Before we start, I am a hypochondriac, so this may just be me. I appear to be experiencing a burning sensation in the right rib cage and right side up middle back. I have taken heartburn tablets in an attempt to solve it but they appear to have done nothing, I'm only 16, so can it be those stone in which I have forgotten the name of?

Could be gallstones see your doctor and ask for a scan.


Very honest for you to admit being a hypochondriac that said you don't what be "the boy that cried wolf"(ask your parents). If it continues do get it checked out by your GP. You just may need the right medicine to control it and not over the counter ones. It may be a case of acid reflux but............I am no GP. Good Luck
