Pain in my side

cheerful1_gwApril 30, 2007

Started over the weekend. I went to bend down, and got this pain on my right side, between my stomach and my back. It figures that it happened 2 days after I was at the doctor for something else! Don't know if it's just a gas pocket, or something else.

I hope it was a gas pocket and you're feeling fine.

If not, what kind of pain is it (throbbing, stabbing, pinching)? Can you describe more where it is (armpit to lower chest/lower chest to waist/waist to hip) and then front to back (from middle of front to middle of back)?
Have you called the Dr. since?

I think it's a gas pocket. I started taking glucosamine on Friday, started getting the pain on Saturday. Don't really feel the pain today, but can feel gas pressure.

It could be just gas pain. It could also be a muscle spasm.

Do consider the possibility, though, that it's a broken rib. I broke a rib a month ago. I was doing twisty type crunches and suddenly I felt a pain in my left side, about halfway down. I got a bone density test a week later, and it was low, indicating that I have osteopenia, the precursor to osteoporosis.

This was a shock. I'm not that old, and I eat plenty of dairy.

I had rib pain so severe that I thought I had a broken rib. I went to my doctoer and he took xrays, nothing was broken. He took one look at my back and told me I had shingles! I have been at home for a week now and am still breaking out. It sure does hurt just like broken ribs.
