Recently I started having some pain underneath my right breast... below my rib cage. I know I have gallstones, so that was what I thought it was at first.
This pain, though, is strange. It's a dull ache that comes and goes. It isn't the type of pain to double me over, and it doesn't appear to have any connection to what I eat. (I ate nothing yesterday afternoon, and I still had the pain.) Sometimes I even feel the ache in my left side, too.
I went to the doctor and he ran some blood work to see if there was a blockage in a duct. Everything came back normal. He said to come back if the pain started to double me over.
Does this sound like gallbladder pain to you? Or something else? I'm considering getting a second opinion, because the pain just isn't going away... at the same time, I don't want to run to the doctor with every ache, either. Any advice/opinions would be appreciated!
