Pain in Back Rib Cage when I eat???

agirl2013 posted:
Lately when i eat I sometimes have pain on my back on my left side in the back ribcage area. I have noticed it is not linked to anything particular. I can eat something healthy or something bad and have the same result. I have noticed it has happened a couple times when I have drank water as well. When it gets really bad both the left and right back hurt in the same place. The longest it lasts is a couple hours. Also sometimes it occurs as I am eating other times it happens after I have ate. I have never had any issues in the past with acid reflux so I do not assume that is the problem. What could it be?

Agirl, you need to check with your doc and have some testing done. Acid reflux and gallbladder issues can have symptoms that make no sense, or they can be completely 'typical.' Symptoms of either issue as well as others can simply seem to come out of the 'blue' with no warning. Make an appointment and get the situation checked out.

These symptoms may be indicative of ulcers or gallstones. Check with your doctor asap.
