    yes, i have a history of chronic hypertension (high bp). i did have high bp yesterday, but that was because i was in so much pain. i will DEFINITELY be bringing it up with the drs next week.

    happy to report, i've only had one pang today... thank god it's over (for now)... that is NOT a nice feeling to live with!

    thanks for all the help, kind words and advice, ladies! i knew i could count on you! (always can!!!)

    Glad that it's has gotten better :) It's not a bad idea to keep track of what is happening or what you were doing just prior to experiencing the pain to better identify what triggers the pain. Also, fatty meals can irritate your gallbladder so also keep track of what your eating to see if that may be the result of your pain. Some medications can cause GI distress. Not sure if you are on any medications or not. It is important to follow the pharmacy recommendations such as sitting up for 30 minutes after taking certain medications as well as eating with food. Hope the pain continues to cease but do talk with your doctor about high bp and such. Take care.

    Moderate to severe pain under the right side of the rib cage mine is the right side, but not under the rib cage... it's higher than that

    Pain will often but not always follow a meal with fats or grease nope, had clam chowder for dinner
    I've had my gallbladder taken out 4 years and it was indeed excruciating. Yes, I did want to curl up and die whenever I get those nasty spells. You can't sleep, you want it to go away but it just goes on and on. No amount of pain releif will do. The pain can go around from the tummy to the back but for me, hardly on the ribs.

    The two symptoms you've written above throw me a bit, particularly with the one after a meal as I will almost always get pains if I get a big hearty meal (bog steaks or BBQ spare ribs). It's 100% guaranteed. I am a skinny little thing so my poor little body probably couldn't take all that meat. The surgery is a simple key hole outpatient surgery.

    Good luck and hope you get a diagnosis.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having pain, Cara :(

    I had really bad chest pains off an on and had a series of them in the spring this past year and went to A & E and they also ruled out heart problems but said that it could also be inflammation in your rib cage which is also extremely painful.

    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
