Over the past 12 years, I have on and of experienced a sensation I can only describe as a muscle spasm or feeling like a baby is kicking in my upper right abdomen just below my right rib. It would come and go and seemed related to stress.
Last year I had an awful year with my father passing away unexpectedly. This seemed to trigger tis symptom to return with a vengeance. Fearing it was my gall bladder ready to burst I went for an ultra sound. Gall bladder looked great but found a weird spot on my liver which threw me into a complete and utter emotional wreck. Had MRI, CAT scan, blood work, tumor marker tests, liver enzymes checked....all perfectly normal. As one doc said.....all tests humanly possible and they still don't know what the spot is. Are quite certain nothing malignant.....could have been there my whole life. Suggested a biopsy to satisfy their curiosity.....I said no to that. Very invasive and carries risk. BUT......this still weighs on me and when I get symptomatic, I panic, of course which makes things worse and the cycle continues.
So.......got upper GI work done, had colonoscopy in 2009, had HIDA scan on gall bladder.....again.....all normal.
They keep saying IBS de to anxiety. I tend to agree but want to verify if anyone else has these symptoms and if symptoms can change.
I still have the...
*Cramping, spasm thing in upper right abdominal area just below ribs.
*Discomfort radiates into back area and rib area front and back
*Feeling like I strained side muscles on right side.....like a good stretch feels great!
*Gas.....belching and other end!
*Right hip tenderness at times
*Trouble getting a deep cleansing breath.....I feel this is anxiety.
*Alternate between loose stools and semi constipation
Does ANYONE else experience these symptoms??? Help!!
