My girlfriend is having sharp pain bellow her right armpit but above her stomach. She says it feels like the pain is behind her bones. She has taken pain medication but that doesn't work. Anyone have any suggestions to ease the pain?

Hello.

First, your girlfriend must get a diagnosis from a doctor. She should start with her primary doctor and see if a specialist is needed. An MRI or CT scan of the area will be needed.

After the diagnosis, the doctor can then suggest what treatment(s) would work.

I am not a doctor, but these symptoms are similar to the ones I had before my gall bladder was removed in 2000. There could be any number of conditions causing these symptoms so she must see her doctor asap.

I hope she can get answers and relief soon.

I agree with Dave, she needs to see her own pcp and get a diagnosis first thing. That will lead to effective treatment.

Take care, Annette
